YAKIMA, WA - A start-up in Yakima is stirring up a special kind of spirit from local crops to get you ready for the holidays.

Swede Hill Distillery in Yakima is making apple pie moonshine from apples they grow in their own orchard, and from local growers in the area.

They started their operation just six months ago and they have already seen a great response from the community.

The owners said they are doing this to showcase one of the regions biggest crops and to put money back into the valley.

"I guess anybody can go and expand outside our valley but keeping local dollars local always benefits us," said owner Kevin Milford.

The owners also said they want to expand their distilling operations and hope to make cherry pie and peach pie moonshine by next summer.

They sell their moonshine in Yakima and the Tri-Cities.

You can buy it at several local grocery stores or right at their distillery. Click here for their website and contact information.
