Standard Is An Understatement.
Intense flavor and complexity will excite the palate and satisfy your bourbon cravings. Aromas of caramel, vanilla cotton candy and a hint of leather combine with flavors of rye spice, wood and fruit for a sensory experience you’ll seek and enjoy again and again. With its creamy mouthfeel and long pleasant finish, what’s not to love? 

90 Proof (ABV 45%)

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. 

Heritage. Tradition. Family. Authenticity. 

Distilling history is coming to life at Southern Distilling Company in Statesville, North Carolina.

Husband and wife team Pete and Vienna Barger grew up inspired by multi-generational family business ownership, and in 2013, they founded Southern Distilling Company. They created an award-winning bourbon distillery that celebrates history and high quality spirits. 

Together, they are diligently building a company that produces world-class bourbon and rye whiskey while highlighting the rich spirits history of North Carolina. The destination distillery offers tours, tastings, and craft cocktails seven days a week. A new event space will open in 2023 offering a variety of custom events in a well-appointed barn with an outdoor patio adjacent to the donkey pasture.
