Now, a new state law could make things even worse, starting a whole new chapter of their infamous rivalry. To aid a troubled economy, West Virginia recently legalized the distillation and sale of moonshine. Residents can now openly sell the once-illicit whiskey their ancestors killed and died for. Seeing the potential for a hot new brand and billion dollar profits, a St. Louis investor offers to set the Hatfields and McCoys up in business to make a completely “authentic” HATFIELD & MCCOY Moonshine.

Progress is slow and often comedic as tempers flare up, tensions run high and family competition and century-old rivalries continue on a whole new level.
