Located at the “Crossroads for the Future,” in Statesville, North Carolina, Southern Distilling Company embraces the spirit of America’s boundlessly innovative craft distilling industry. From a dream conceived on a family farm, Southern Distilling Company was founded by Pete and Vienna Barger in 2013 as a way to tap into home and heritage… and revive the legacy of the deep distilling roots that Statesville once had. The company aims to provide the highest quality distilled spirits available to both the local region and customers worldwide who desire a sense of truth and place in the drinks they enjoy.

Today, an impressive, modern two-story glass-fronted destination distillery houses an innovative, state-of-the-art craft distillery in 25,000 square feet, sited on 20 comfortable acres of agricultural farmland and old-growth hardwood trees. At 40 feet high, the tallest stainless steel and copper column still system in North Carolina is found inside the glass-enclosed production area, along with a copper pot still system for handcrafted small batch and limited edition products. Some of Carolina’s tastiest high-quality bourbon, rye whiskey, and other tasty products flow through our exclusive custom-designed “Double Barrel” spirit safe before being bottled by hand onsite.
