Colorless whiskeys, otherwise known as moonshine or "white dog," are the latest rage among distillers and "spirit geeks." The raw version of the spirit -- not yet aged in the barrels that give whiskey its deeper color and flavor -- is more pungent and sweet, experts say. The main producers of white dog aren't stills -- they're illegal -- but rather micro-distilleries with names such as Death's Door, the Copper Fox and House Spirits.
