Though the original Mountain Dew soft drink was non-alcoholic they certainly didn’t mind the comparison to illicitly produced whiskey that you can make in a bathtub. 

In fact, the original Mountain Dew advertisements featured a stereotypical hillbilly (cleverly named “Willy the Hillbilly”) who drank Dew from moonshine jugs. And their old slogan promised that Mountain Dew will “tickle yore innards, cause there’s a bang in every bottle”. Obviously this was intended to draw a connection to moonshine.
