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.

We really enjoyed our time here and especially enjoyed the brief tour and the free tastings. There is a lot to take in and Kirsten did a great job of talking us through the tastings. She was very helpful when making our selections and then left us alone to look through the other items in the store. There is lots... More

Just moved to the area & passed a big blow up mason jar on my way home. Looked up what is was all about & had to check it out. Great atmosphere & a great product. Bringing friends whenever they come by to visit.

There were 8 of us and our host not only entertained us but the tastings of various flavored moonshine was interesting. They have a large supply of products from which to choose and we left with a variety to... More

South Carolina's very first legal moonshine distillery. This place was awesome! From the tour to the tasting to the shopping! URTHANG! Just as I signed in the guest book. Very impressed and will be visiting again with the wife next time.
