Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Chocolate Moonshines Made in Pawtucket

White Dog Distilling offers decadent spirits that rival a box of bonbons


For the sweetie with a sweet tooth, White Dog Distilling brings back two decadent moonshines to celebrate the month of love. Instead of a box of bonbons, try the gift of HOWLIN’ Cherry Chocolate, which is “cherry first, then chocolate,” explains Alecia Catucci, who co-owns the Pawtucket micro-distillery with her husband Carlo. “The cherries were steeped for six months and then we layered in the chocolate.” Not to be outmatched, HOWLIN’ Chocolate Peanut Butter is its chocolate-forward companion with lingering peanut butter notes.

“These chocolate moonshines were born from popular cocktails we have had in the tasting room,” says Catucci. “We thought if our spirit family liked the cocktail, they may enjoy it as a moonshine!”

The Adult Cherry Chocolate Milk, for instance, is a rich, creamy bevvie featuring their cherry chocolate moonshine, cacao powder from Enjoyful Food out of Hope & Main, and house-made dairy-free half and half, a bevvie that Catucci notes is great for washing down a breakfast of waffles…or brownies. Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo, though, is a dessert in itself with moonshine, Oreos, peanut butter topping, and more of their creamy house-made half and half. If you’re grabbing a seat at the distillery this month, you can try these dessert cocktails through February 15, or bring spirits home by the bottle to concoct your own.
