Carolina Moon Distillery makes our spirits by hand in small batches. We ensure that each individual batch meets our highest standards for quality. We actually bottle and package all of our products by hand. The pride we feel in our products extends from selection of local ingredients, into the distillation process, right through to the finished product.
We are Edgefield County’s only licensed micro-distillery, also referred to as a craft distiller or artisan distiller. We believe that a real micro-distillery does not use commercially produced alcohol (known as NGS or neutral grain spirit) but creates it’s alcohol from raw materials like corn, grain or fruit. We believe that a real micro-distillery must actually own and use a still to produce their spirits.
Our production is limited and much smaller than that of large brands, but this allows us to retain a personal touch to everything we do and to personally ensure each and every batch of spirits is of the highest quality.
David F. Long and T. ‘Cal’ Bowie, Master Distillers and co-owners of Carolina Moon Distillery, along with their cousin Bill Hatch, have the mash barrels bubbling and converting Edgefield County corn into alcohol. They are also the mashers, tasting room store clerks, chief bottle washers, marketing directors, Chief of Operations, labelers and chief bottle fillers. They are involved in every aspect of the business and personally oversee each and every batch of whiskey spirits produced by Carolina Moon Distiller.
In late 2013, after a tortuous year and a half of wrangling all sorts of issues such as site acquisition, building, codes design issues, remodeling and construction issues, the entire ATF lable approval process, training and education, and just plain dogged persistence, Carolina Moon Distillery was launched. They took possession of a custom made pot still and started cooking. Unlike aged whisky, white whiskey can be enjoyed almost immediately and that’s just what makes it so desirable and tasty.. its edge. David and Cal are both lifelong residents of Edgefield and enjoy being part of the revitalization of this great town.
Our spirits are made by hand, from grain to glass. Unlike some so called ‘distillers’, we are distilling and bottling right here in Edgefield and only use 100% of our product in our hand bottled product, there is no blending from another alcohol distillery. We sell only the best of our run. There was a reason many folks tried home distilled and that once was enough. Major distillers use the entire run, we use only the Hearts which gives us and you, the best spirits available.
We invite you to visit us for a taste of our products and visit our distillery soon
