SMALL BATCH, AGED IN WOOD
Two remarkable straight rye whiskeys, countless hours and failed trials, one perfectly balanced bottle of rye whiskey. This delightfully herbaceous and citrusy spirit smooths into a sizzle that warms the mouth before melting into a vanilla sweetness that hangs toward the back of the palate.

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.
