Bert's right--there's a right smart of it down here in Alabama. Practically every time I teach my graduate folklore course, at least one student includes a moonshiner as one of the required fieldwork projects. I don't know any moonshiners personally here (to my knowledge), but I suspect that I could get some 'shine fairly quickly if I wanted to. Now, in my native East Tennessee, when I was growing up, it was not hard at all to find moonshiners. When I was a teenager, my idea of a thrilling evening was to ride through the mountains with one of the fellas who ran the 'shine into Chattanooga to the dealers. Back then, when I drank, I preferred the local brew, but, as Jimmy points out, it can be deadly, and we made it a practice to buy only from makers whom we knew personally, and who took pride in their work. Back in the 'fifties we could get a quart of it for two to three dollars. 'Most all of us who roamed the mountains hunting or just wandering knew the location of at least one still. I don't mean to make it sound at all glamorous--by the time I graduated high school I had lost two friends who were shot when they accidentally came up on moonshine operations while hunting (two separate occasions), and I have been shot at myself on more than one occasion. But I digress. To answer Jim Dixon's original question, YES white lightning is still around down south, and it ain't really hard to find.
