Do you enjoy a sip of bourbon now and again? Or are you more interested in knowing how they make it than you are imbibing? Either way, you’ll want to visit Southern Grace Distilleries. It’s a fascinating bourbon distillery in Mount Pleasant, North Carolina, just a 17-minute drive from City Wide Exterminating and about 20 minutes north of Charlotte.
Southern Grace Distilleries represents America’s first distillery located in a former prison. The company concocts a variety of bourbons, including its award-winning Conviction Small Batch Bourbon.
The distillery introduced Conviction Small Batch Bourbon in 2017 and has since won numerous awards for its quality, including a gold medal at the Micro Liquor Awards, a double gold medal at the 50 Best Bourbon Competition, and Best Bourbon Under 4 Years at the New Orleans Bourbon Festival.
Southern Grace Distilleries not only distills award-winning bourbon, but it sells bottles of it and cocktails made with it in its Mount Pleasant location. And if you want to learn more about the distilling process, choose one or more of the company’s associated tours and other events.
Enjoy Southern Grace Distilleries bourbon with food from local food trucks on Food Truck Fridays or take a tour of the distillery. You might choose the Behind the Bars tour, which provides you with a history of the old prison and the history of bourbon making.
If you’re a little more adventurous, try Southern Grace Distilleries’ After Dark tour. You’ll ramble farther into the old prison for a creepy, spooky, hauntingly good time.
While Southern Grace Distilleries recommends its facility for guests 21 years old and older, your children can accompany you on tours or hang out with you in the building. Keep in mind, though, children who are more than 5 years old will pay the full ticket price. Tour tickets range from $14 to $19, with special pricing available for groups of more than ten people.
Southern Grace Distilleries is about a 17 min (12.3 mile) drive from City Wide Exterminating in Concord, NC via NC-49 N.
