Jerry Smith was one of the most adventurous and inventive moonshiners. He was making his shine in railway carriages, while hiding his distilling apparatus behind fake walls.

He used to put fresh batches into barrels of shoe polish so that the police could never find it. This is how bottles became black and the history of a remarkable brand had emerged.
