Owner description: On January 5th, 2011, the State of South Carolina issued Palmetto Moonshine a permit to make LEGAL moonshine and become the first micro-distillery to make the illegal liquor that has been selling for hundreds of years. Through connections from friends and our own family tree, we found many retired moonshiners who were willing to share their century old recipes with us to keep the moonshine spirit alive for the next couple hundred years. After a long process, we took their secrets and created our own special recipe for Palmetto Moonshine. Free distillery tours and moonshine tastings available daily.

Every time I visit, I experience the best personalized customer service! I am greeted near the door, offered samples, gift-wrapping, and/or informed about the history or even upcoming events. Of course, the products are great and the "hillbilly" standing at the street corner waving at everyone makes me smile every time I pass him.

This is a fun, adult place, although children are allowed in, with some wonderful, unique, creative gift ideas. It's the place to shop for all the hard to buy people in your life. Note: Moonshine is liquor and shouldn't be bought for anyone under the age of 21. It's fun to go in and search through. I like the sippy... More

This place is awesome from the moment you get out of your car and a cute hillbilly-looking guy greets you to the products and even the bathroom facilities as well as the little zoo on the roof. The staff is extremely friendly and very willing to allow legal age customers sample the moonshine and everyone is welcome to sample the... More

Visiting family in Georgia and we decided to pop over to SC. Stopped in to buy some shine, got a overview of how moonshine is made. We tasted some of their products, bought several jars and a few other souviners ( the warm apple pie moonshine was awesome!) everyone was great, like hanging out with some old friends. Highly recommend... More

I loved the store and the products. Can't wait to come back and get more! Hope to visit the two other stores soon. We visited the store at Myrtle Beach S. C.

Went to tour distillery on Labor Day. Truston was my tour guide and was so knowledgeable about the entire process. I had many questions about the mash and filtering system. He explained it all to me and showed me around the store. I did some tasting and tried some new product. I drive down from Greenville to buy Apple Pie.... More

My parents live in Myrtle Beach & happen to tell us about Palmetto Moonshine because we are big fans of Ol' Smoky Mountain Moonshine being from TN. Very comparable in taste & love the cinnamon the apple pie had...great addition to the shine. I bought the Cherry Apple juice to try with the regular white lightening. Good job on the... More

Good shine and great tour. Be sure to taste the preserves and do go to both stores! Quick hint...the shine is less expensive at the store on 76 because they don't have to pay the distillery tax but you can't taste until 2 pm there. The distillery and shop downtown does the tour. Both have wonderful friendly staff.
