Season 12 of Discovery’s “Moonshiners” premieres tonight, November 9 at 8p, followed by a new episode of “Master Distillers.” Both shows come from Magilla Entertainment, and according to Matthew Ostrom, EP and Co-Owner of Magilla, the pairing makes sense. “We’ve been working on ‘Moonshiners’ for a decade plus, which has allowed us front row seats into a region of the country and way of life that began hundreds of years ago,” said Ostrom. “On the other end of the spectrum, ‘Master Distiller’ takes a traditional craft and elevates it to a competitive culinary art. Together, these shows paint a full picture of a multi-generational custom that has become an important part of their culture, and our pop culture.”
