Paragon Wheated Straight Bourbon Whiskey
VANILLA DOESN’T MEAN BORING.
Every sip of this smooth, welcoming bourbon reveals more complex vanilla, chocolate, and fruit notes, along with walnut and honey, all carried on a soft but rich texture. There’s even a little bite, for those who need to sip something with teeth.

Founded by husband and wife Pete and Vienna Barger in 2013 in North Carolina, Southern Distilling Company embraces the spirit of America’s innovative craft industry while reigniting the forgotten history of Statesville’s late 1800s reputation as the “liquor capital of the world.”
The Southern Star family of spirits is a collection of intentional, artisanal products, including Southern Star Paragon Wheated Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Southern Star Double Rye Whiskey and Southern Star Double Shot, among others. Southern Star products are available in 20 states, with rapidly expanding national and global distribution.
Today, Southern Distilling Company’s facility and grounds are 20 acres of historic agricultural farmland. You can’t miss the 30,000 square foot modern, two-story glass-fronted distillery from nearby Interstate 77.
