Urban Moonshine uses only organically grown or ethically wildcrafted herbs. We source our herbs locally first and then turn to bigger distributors with a great record for quality when we need something out of season or not grown in our region. We proudly source many of our herbs from the following farms: Zack Woods Herb Farm, Bees Dance Herb Farm, and Healing Spirits Herb Farm.

We use only organic alcohol to create all our tinctures. Our Bitters and Tonics ingredients are steeped in organic grape alcohol because we believe that it is the highest quality alcohol available, and it has a superior taste!   To learn more about the benefits of taking a liquid tincture or tea, please check out our first Urban Moonshine video starring Jovial King and Guido Mase!
