Southern Distilling Company
One of the most beautiful distilleries I've ever been to. Their Spirits are clean and very well made. A must - visit if you are in the area.
A great visit! We received a thorough and detailed history lesson on distilleries in Statesville. Terry Joe was quite versed on the history of bourbon and whiskey in the area and the history of the company. Later, after a 'hot' tour (it was hot, literally,) she and Jack shared more history during our taste test. I found the bourbon-infused coffee quite smooth and tasty and purchased a bag. The taste testing was a hit with everyone. We even got to sample 152.6 proof stock that was yet to be bottled! This was a great opportunity to sample whiskey and bouron that is locally made with grains purchased from local farmers.
Had a blast!!! Great people, great distillery, and great whiskey.. What else can your ask for? I highly recommend visiting Southern Distilling. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable not only about the whiskey and the process of making alcohol, but he was able to give information about the history of the land and area surrounding! Go here and get you some!
Nice place to visit on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon the tour was interesting they have the tallest Worm in North Carolina and their liquor was very good. Nice little memorabilia section also.
Very clean and the tour was more comprehensive than other distillery tours I've taken. Our tour guide was great and the group was small. We had ample time to ask any questions, take photos, and look at all of the equipment. They even have a full barrel on display that allows the guides to show what happens to the inside of the barrel during the aging process. The tour comes with a tasting at the end and that was also great.
