Palmetto Moonshine Distillery
About Palmetto Moonshine – Palmetto Moonshine is the latest labor of love from Trey and Bryan Boggs. These two brothers, entrepreneurs, and hometown boys from Anderson, SC are dedicated businessmen, country boys, and most importantly… moonshine connoisseurs.
The concept for Palmetto Moonshine started late one night in 2010. Trey, after seeing a bust on the local news, began to investigate the legalities of making genuine corn whiskey. To his surprise, his research unearthed the simple fact that the government does NOT actually hate moonshine…it just hates not making money off the tasty product!
On January 5, 2011, the State of South Carolina issue Palmetto Moonshine a permit to make LEGAL moonshine and become the first micro-distillery to make the (previously illegal) liquor that has been selling in these parts for hundreds of years…and so the journey to greatness began!
After the seemingly endless paperwork was completed, Trey and Bryan began the search for the perfect moonshine process. Through connections and their own family tree, the brothers found many retired moonshiners who were willing to share their 100-200 year-old recipes to keep the tradition alive. Through a combination of these methods, ingredients, and recipes…our now famous white lightning was brought into this world.
All products made by Palmetto Moonshine are created to show the pride and history of our great state, as well as the unique culture of our brand. We chose the blue in our labels to not only symbolize the color of our state flag, but also to show the color that worthwhile moonshine should look when lit by a flame. In addition, our moonshine is sold in mason jars to represent how good ole mountain brews were served for hundreds of years…and how they’re still served today!
Most importantly, our moonshine is made in-house and comes from a true 100% copper still (it helps keep the hangovers away!). We have one distiller who knows the product inside and out, so you never have to worry about the flavor changing on you.
Palmetto Moonshine Distillery Products
We bottle 105 proof, which is much higher than most of the competition. But don’t let the higher proof fool you! We distill it three times so we keep that fine line between smooth and not losing the corn whisky flavor. We wanted to have not only the highest proof but something that goes down as smooth as shot of vodka with a much bigger kick!
Since its release, our apple pie moonshine has been an uncontested favorite among customers at our distillery. It’s our own secret recipe unlike anyone else’s apple pie moonshine you may have tried, and we sell it with a cinnamon stick in each and every jar.
For those of you who find the apple pie a little too sweet for your taste, our blackberry flavored moonshine should be just right. We mix our moonshine with 100% real blackberry juice to a strength of 45 proof. This flavor still packs a big punch, and is popular among both men and women.
South Carolina is one of the country’s biggest producers of peaches, so we were destined to make a dangerously delicious peach flavored moonshine. Enjoy real peach flavor, even when peaches are out of season! This one is bottled at 45 proof as well.
