These large ceramic jugs that were used to hold liquor, usually a gallon, have become synonymous with the practice of moonshining. In other words, the illegal production and sale of whiskey during the prohibition years. One of the main reasons why a moonshine jug was used was that you couldn’t see what the jug contained, so the contents had a better chance of going undetected. The problem was, everyone knew exactly what the brown and white pottery jugs were used for and what they contained.

These days these moonshine jugs have become highly collectible items, not only for their historical relevance but also the fact that they remain very handy storage devices. They can be placed into an older-style kitchen and provide atmosphere through the old-style appeal and character that it brings to the room. There are many different sizes of vintage moonshine whiskey jugs available so they can be either placed high up on a shelf or, for the larger ones, lower down on the floor or on a small table.

The shape and dimensions of these jugs have become popular icons and have become used in the home in a number of different ways. One of the more popular versions of these jugs are the smaller replicas that have been adapted as salt and pepper shakers.

These jugs have also been popularly used to celebrate special occasions and notable events with the exterior of the jug the perfect place to display logos and emblems. Not only does this make them great for storing special beverages it also turns them into collectable items that will look great on display.
