Defiant Whisky is the spirit of Golden Valley, located in the heart of western North Carolina's South Mountains! Defiant is a new way of distilling. We're not bound by barrels or recipes or tradition. Our guides are the finest ingredients, Mother Nature and our own intuition. Create the Defiant experience – how long is it aged? Take a sip, the proof is in the pudding! Enjoy a scenic drive through Golden Valley and off the beaten path you will find Defiant's Blue Ridge Distillery. Our gift shop can be found inside the distillery and is filled with t-shirts, hats, koozies, glasses and unique craft items. Stop by for a weekday tour and tasting.
