Flying Pepper

The Flying Pepper was a legend of the midway.  From the first drop to the last, it was a roller coaster so thrilling only the bravest would dare to board. Flying Pepper Tobago Infused Vodka brings you the thrilling flavor of the tobago, or aji dulce, pepper: mysteriously smoky, sweet with just a hint of heat.  Keeping with our commitment to local agriculture, we work with small farmers across NC to grow these rare peppers from hand-selected seeds.  We then infuse these peppers into a remarkably clean NC organic wheat vodka, leaving the rich tobago pepper bouquet to linger on the palate.  We love The Flying Pepper in bloody marys, martinis, or simply chilled, and think you will too!

No’Lasses

No’Lasses is a unique spirit created as a rum, but made from sweet sorghum cane rather than sugarcane.  We blend our home-grown and fresh-pressed sorghum cane juice with award-winning sorghum cane syrup, then slowly ferment it, distill it twice in our alembic copper still, then leave it to mature in bourbon oak barrels.  Having grown, harvested, pressed, and cooked our own sorghum cane into a sorghum cane syrup for years, we are proud to bring you this traditional southern flavor in our sorghum cane spirit — a true farm-to-glass experience.

Apple Brandy

Apple Brandy is the original spirit of North Carolina, distilled from mountain apples for generations in the Appalachians by farmers who needed a non-perishable product that was always in demand.  In keeping with that tradition, our Apple Brandy is crafted from fresh pressed apple cider from the NC mountains, slowly fermented at low temperatures for optimum flavor.  Careful distillation in our alembic copper pot still results in a mellow and smooth Apple Brandy that is then aged on bourbon oak barrels ’til it’s ready to be bottled.  This craft spirit is similar to a Calvados with a nose of apple, oak, and delicate fruit: the taste of fall in the mountains.

Amber Rum

When we approached this rum we were inspired by the rich pot-distilled dark rums of the Caribbean and the funky, elegant rhum agricoles of Martinique.  Our Amber Rum is crafted from organic panela sugar, a rich, raw sugar made in Colombia from evaporated cane juice, giving it a lively floral and grassy aroma and deep sweetness that blackstrap molasses rums couldn’t dream of.  Slow fermentation with Caribbean rum yeast, careful distillation on our alembic pot still, and bourbon barrel aging make for an incredibly unique and exceptionally sippable Amber Rum, equally at home in tiki cocktails or in a brandy snifter.

Limited Edition Carolina Agricole Rum

Our small batch Carolina Agricole debuted in the fall of 2016 with a limited two barrel bottling, just 887 375ml bottles made on our first run!  Rum Agricole is a traditional and exceptional style of rum from the French Carribean islands.  Fresh cut South Carolina sugarcane is pressed straight from the cane fields and the juice is brought directly to our distillery for fermentation.  This unique and rare method captures the wild yeast and fresh cane flavor which give the Carolina Agricole its distinctive flavor profile.  Twice distilled in our copper alembic pot still and aged in bourbon barrels, this very special rum is made to be savored.  Our Carolina Agricole is one of only a handful of rum agricoles available in the United States – look for it again in 2018!
