South Carolina Crafted
Each batch of Striped Pig Distillery’s craft spirits comes from seeds handpicked and harvested at the Myer’s Farm in Bowman, SC, a fourth generation farm that started out in the late 1800s. Each process of milling, mashing, fermenting, and distilling is all done on-site to create the highest quality spirits around. Each batch is then individually bottled and signed by one of the distillers and owners, with special barrel-aged batches released on a limited basis. And once each grain is spent, they donate it all right back to the farms as feed for their livestock. The process all begins and ends in South Carolina!

Striped Pig offers packages to host smaller parties of 50 up to larger parties of 200. Each package includes set-up and takedown and includes full use of the tasting room. Allow Striped Pig to provide a historic venue that demonstrates the vast history of Charleston through salvaged antique wood and fascinating distilling equipment.
