The storied distilling heritage of Statesville has been reawakened by Southern Distilling Company. The city was once known as the “liquor capital of the world” in the 1880s and now Southern Distilling is bringing high quality, local bourbon, rye whiskey and brandy production back to this agricultural community. We are located in a 25,000-square-foot, glass-fronted showplace along Interstate 77 near the I-40 interchange. Visit our facility to take an informative, behind-the-scenes tour of our state-of-the-art distillery. Afterwards, pull up a seat at our flame oak, high-top bar for a tasting and peruse our specialty gift shop for the perfect souvenir. We have special events throughout the year, ranging from live music to special releases. Please check our Facebook page for upcoming events. We can’t wait to meet you!

Please note the last tour is held one hour before closing.
