A man who was raised with bootleggers and moonshiners, got his license to legally sell traditionally-made moonshine liquor. Dale Wayne Freeman, 58, of Paris, Texas is the founder of Hillbilly Moonshiners, a local moonshine company that prides itself on making the liquor "the original way." Moonshiners is a slang term that dates back to the Prohibition Era. It characterizes those who originally made liquor illegally in efforts to escape the tax rates placed on alcohol. Unlike home-brewed beer or amateur winemaking - moonshining, or distilling alcohol, is still illegal because it can be so dangerous.
