Moonshiner: Prohibition Style Cocktails in Paris

Moonshiner 5 rue Sedaine 75011Paris When it comes to cocktails, I get around. Pre-batched, on tap, carbonated, bottled, aged, shrubs, smoked, frozen, jellified, high octane, low octane, molecular, bitters, gin, whisky, mescal, pisco, house-made syrups, and infusions.
