The year is 1926, and Pierre F. Houpert had started producing moonshine in his barn with an old copper still he bought from a succession, along with furniture and other treasures that an antiquarian seeks. He has large quantities of sugar delivered to his home and people start noticing... Of course this is happening in Connecticut, right in the middle of the US prohibition!
Fortunately the story ends without jail time. This house, standing on Tower Hill Road, is where we spent our summer vacations as Pierre was our great uncle. Almost one hundred years later, the Tower Hill Road distillery is at it again; another small operation but this time very legitimate!
