Boozy baking for the win.

Welcome to fall in Alberta – Mother Nature sure knows how to keep us on our toes! And as any true blooded Albertan knows, there’s nothing better to indulge in during a freak snowstorm than a delicious boozy treat.

We found a keeper in this delicious dessert – enhanced with our very special End of the Line Moonshine Spirit made with 100% Alberta-grown wheat, water, and yeast. We are proud that our moonshine is a testament to those who forge their own paths to create a better life, just like many Albertans do every day in this unpredictable season.

We know you’ll take a shine to Hansen’s End of the Line Moonshine Spirit Apple Cheesecake Pie!
