The 2019 Mint 400 Decanter is filled with City Lights Shine Whiskey Moonshine and is now available to reserve and purchase exclusively through The Dirt Co. Commemorative “Jim Beam” Whiskey decanters were produced from 1970-1976 as a means of commemorating the annual running of The Mint 400 and in 2018, The Mint 400 and City Lights Shine brought back the decanter for its 50th Anniversary.
Decanters filled with City Lights Whiskey Moonshine can only be picked up onsite during The Mint 400 week at Atomic Liquors during normal business hours. All bottles not picked up at the event will be refunded to the purchaser.
Decanters not filled with City Lights Whiskey Moonshine can ship anywhere in the world. These are great for people unable to attend The Mint 400 but still would like a piece of history.
City Lights Shine is 100% distilled in Las Vegas from a traditional southern moonshine recipe using a whisky style mash to create the highest quality unaged sour mash moonshine with no added artificial ingredients or preservatives. CLS features six distinct all natural flavors of moonshine including strawberry, blueberry, cherry lemon, raspberry, salted caramel, and original. Distilled solely from cane and grain, all flavors can be drank straight or in mixed drinks such as the “Shine-a-Rita” or the “#VegasStrong Mule”.
“Brendan Gaughan’s support last year is really what made bringing back the decanters possible. I am proud to say that all modern decanters are filled with City Lights Shine. Moonshine and racing are inherently tied together since the first cars to be modified to go faster were moonshiners running from the law. Those cars and the technology they invented eventually went on to tracks and create racing as we know it in the United States,” stated Mint CEO, Matt Martelli
“I grew up going to this race so it’s important to us to support such an iconic Las Vegas sports event. My dad raced The Mint 400 for almost two decades and finished second in Class 1/2 five times and I was fortunate enough to have raced the Mint back in the 90’s. The Mint 400 is a part of the DNA of Las Vegas and it’s a great marketing platform for City Light Shine brand to get local, national, and global attention,” stated City Lights Shine founder, Brendan Gaughan.
Be sure to ask for City Lights Shine during The Mint 400 Off-Road Festival Thursday, March 7th and Friday, March 8th at one of the numerous Mint 400 bars and local establishments or at the Primm Valley Start/Finish on Saturday, March 9th and Sunday, March 10th.
