Taste the Moonshine With a Deadly Feud in Its Roots

The infamy of the Hatfield-McCoy feud has been burned in American history and sensationalized through the decades. For those unfamiliar with the feud, it began with two families in 1860’s Kentucky, which were each run by their respective patriarch. On one side you had William Anderson Hatfield, also known as “Devil Anse,” and on the other side, you had Randolph “Old Ranel” McCoy, who many claim inspired the saying “the real McCoy.”

The Real Family Feud

After a culmination of events, including some intermarriages gone awry, a notorious hog stealing, and an unfortunate string of murders, the two families found themselves in a feud to last centuries. At the end of it all, the Hatfield family took the brunt of notoriety, with a tarnished reputation as a group of backwoods rebels. Today, their memory lives on through the original moonshine recipe of Devil Anse himself. The recipe was passed down to his grandson, Mark Hatfield, who now runs the Original Hatfield Moonshine distillery in West Virginia.
