LAS VEGAS (December 2018) – The Underground, the new Prohibition history exhibition at The Mob Museum, announces Cinn-City, its festive moonshine infused with the flavors of the holiday season. As with all The Underground’s moonshine, this variety is house-made in the distillery’s 60-gallon, copper-pot still, the spirit is a Las Vegas corn whiskey made with double-distilled, 100-percent corn mash. Blended with the subtle spicy-sweetness of Ceylon cinnamon and the bolder heat of Saigon cinnamon, this moonshine showcases the extraordinary flavors that have made cinnamon a prized commodity through the ages.
The new holiday flavored moonshine will be available for purchase beginning Dec. 19 in The Underground’s distillery for $23.95 (750 ml) or $7.95 (50 ml). The original Mob Museum unflavored moonshine is offered for $20.95 (750 ml) or $6.95 (50 ml). Mix-and-match three-packs are also available: three 750-ml jars cost $39.95 (may include one Cinn-City jar) and 50-ml bottles are priced at $19.95.
The Mob Museum is open until 9 p.m. daily, while The Underground remains open until midnight. For more information, call (702) 229-2734.
ABOUT THE UNDERGROUND
The Underground is an immersive Prohibition history exhibit, featuring a distillery, speakeasy and private VIP room located in the basement of The Mob Museum and sponsored by Zappos. Its custom-made, copper-pot still, dubbed “Virginia Still” after mobster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel’s notorious girlfriend Virginia Hill, has a capacity of 60 gallons and can serve up to 250 750-mL jars of moonshine per week. The Underground also brews and serves craft beer onsite. Artifacts from the 1920s and 1930s on display tell the intriguing story of the Prohibition era, which not only saw a proliferation of bootlegged booze and the meteoric growth of organized crime outfits, but also had a profound, lasting impact on society and culture. Complimentary entrance to The Underground is granted at the secret side entrance to visitors who know the correct password, which is published daily on Instagram Stories @MobMuseum_Underground.
