The Riverside area is known for all of its unique bars and local breweries. Kickbacks may be known for over 100 beers on tap, but The Salty Fig may soon be known for a variety of moonshine. Although the name may imply something that more closely resembles rubbing alcohol than actual liquor, moonshine is actually just a white whisky. It usually is not aged, like dark whiskey is, meaning it is easier to make.
The Salty Fig, located on King Street in Riverside, has a collection of 26 different varieties of moonshine. John Stanford, Owner and general Manager of The Salty Fig, states that his favorite of these is Prichard’s Lincoln County Lighting because of Prichard’s reputation for other good liquors, such as traditional whiskey.
