The American docudrama reality series Moonshiners is about producing moonshine in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina Tennessee, and Virginia. The show dramatizes and overstates their liquor production efforts, law-evading techniques, and life.

One of the biggest questions fans of the show have is that how do Moonshiners cast members not get into trouble?

The Moonshiners cast has a license from their respective states of residence to make alcohol and also the cast revealed in one of the interviews that once the show is on the air there are no retroactive arrests made for any wrongdoing. Supposedly you have to get caught in the act.

At the same time, Virginia authorities have already cleared the viewers by saying people portrayed on the show do not produce illegal liquor.

The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) announced, "If illegal activity was taking place, the Virginia ABC Bureau of Law Enforcement would have taken action.
