Did you know that North Carolina’s history of distilling spirits dates back as early as the 18th century? Local corn farmers quickly realized that distilling and selling alcohol yielded a greater return on their crops, overhauling their corn to market. This was the dawning of a new, thriving, spirit-producing community.
In the 1880’s, NC distilleries boomed, with over 450 producers of local spirits. This lucrative landscape for distillers came to a screeching halt in 1909, as state prohibition laws went into effect and the temperance movement gained momentum across the nation. Although federal prohibition ended in 1933, NC voted to remain dry until 1937.
Presently, North Carolina has over 80 locally owned distilleries, all of which have opened within the past 15 years. North Carolina distilleries are earning accolades for their award-winning spirits and currently generate a variety of products; including gin, moonshine, rum, vodka, and whiskey.
Our intention at Dirty Whiskey is to introduce our guests to a unique craft cocktail experience, while offering a specifically curated menu of North Carolina spirits, in-house fusions, and locally sourced ingredients. Here you will find the essence of our community and culture, along with delicious libations.
Join us in raising a glass to the North Carolina distillers, farmers, and producers of local goods. Our hope is to honor them, while creating one of a kind experiences and memories with you!
