Where does all that wonderful liquor come from anyway?

The short answer: Distilleries

The simple definition of a distillery is a spot where liquor is manufactured. That sounds boring though, right? Wrong. If you have never gotten the chance to tour a distillery, then you simply must take the time to do so.

It is amazing to see where your favorite liquor is made and some of them even allow you to simple their liquor depending on the laws in the area. Yes, you must be 21 or older in the US. This is a great outing to do even with your family!

About the Area

North Carolina Distilleries are mostly located mid-state and many around Charlotte and Elkin areas that are growing insanely fast. I personally grew up in the area and have watched it grow first-hand as well as the breweries and wineries here but I don't want to get off topic so moving on...

The Tar Heel State has around 50 distillers to tour! It is such a huge number considering how many wineries and breweries are also in this state and for a state that use to have many dry counties, this is a bit surprising. However, this is definitely a state you want to visit and tour as much as you possibly can. It is even home to our Queen City, Charlotte. Whether you live locally or are visiting, it is worth it to check them all out and be sure to frequently come back to this site as more and more of them are getting added each day. Tours typically last from 30 to 60 minutes per tour and they are well worth your time to check out the different ones. Each one has their own flavors and charm to experience.

What is even more awesome is that most distilleries offer free samples of their liquor when you go through a tour as well. The tours are extremely interesting and fun to do too. They aren't just there to sample the liquor that you're looking forward to but are actually very informative and you get to meet a lot of like-minded people usually that are also doing the tour. - Be sure to call ahead if you are planning on doing a tour at one of the distilleries to check on availability.
