Small Batch Southern Spirits

We are a craft distillery rooted in our Southern home and inspired by the world’s classic spirits.  Our rums and brandies are slowly fermented and carefully distilled on an alembic copper still before resting in bourbon oak barrels.  With all of our products, our goal is to bring you true Southern craft spirits,  equally at home in cocktails, on their own, or over ice.  We avoid shortcuts in favor of an honest, slow approach to produce spirits of the highest quality made with unique ingredients and processes, and always uniquely delicious.

A New Approach to Carolina Wines

What began with a love for classic ports and sherries has turned into a whole new expression of what Southern wine can be.  Our wines are made with Southern fruit: Haw River Valley grapes, North Carolina mountain apples, peaches from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia, and blackberries sourced from Virginia.  Infusing our wines with brandy, an Old World winemaking technique, allows our wines to be versatile, not so sweet, and pair perfectly with food and desserts – plus, they work wonderfully in a variety of wine spritzers and cocktails.  At Fair Game Beverage Company, we are crafting globally-inspired wines proud to call North Carolina home.

Spirits on Fire

Over the holiday break on the Outer Banks my son Arlo lit a bottle cap of Fair Game Apple Brandy on fire.  It was a gentle blue flame that fascinated me. Cooking.  Flambe.  Brandy finish.  I'm new to the food and beverage industry, but as the new corner office guy at...
