Now you can go Pig AT home with our online merchandise store! We have new apparel for sale at the distillery and now we are launching an online store for our friends that live out of town and still want to rep their Stripes! You can of course purchase apparel at the distillery as well from Thursday to Saturday 12-5pm. Be sure to keep an eye out for specials, discounts, and giveaways.
We’ve also brought back a favorite for you…Stickers! We have custom stickers and magnets now available at the distillery for purchase and key chains will be coming soon. These are the perfect accompaniment to a bottle of your favorite local spirit. Currently these are only available AT the distillery, but we’re hoping to be able to ship in the near future.

We love them and hope you guys will too.
2020 has been a challenging year to say the least, but we’re happy to do anything and everything we can to lift your spirits!?Come check us out for a tour and a tasting, and as always thank you all for supporting us and all small/local businesses.
It’s been another great year for the Striped Pig thanks to our fabulous friends, old and new, who drop in to keep us entertained with tours and tastings (wait…were we supposed to be entertaining you?!).? Perhaps we’ve done one tasting too many, but whatever the reason, we somehow forgot to mention our success at the spirits competitions this year!
This spring we earned new stripes of glory after sending our Vodka, Gin, and Spiced Rum to compete at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits (SFWS) competition and the New York International Spirits Competition (NYISC), and we recently took home more wins from the SIP Awards: International Spirits Competition.
We picked up three Silver medals?at SFWS, awarded to products that are outstanding in their category, showing refinement, finesse, and complexity. At NYISC our Gin took away a Double Gold, and our Spiced Rum earned a Bronze.? The Double Gold is a special honor, given to spirits that are considered the finest in the world by all the judges on the panel.? For the SIP Awards our Gin earned a Gold, our Rum earned a Bronze, our Spiced Rum a Silver, and our Vodka a Double Gold. Apart from the medals, we also earned the ?South Carolina Distillery of the Year? award at the NYISC.? Not too shabby!
Being the first year we’ve entered spirits competitions, we really didn’t know what to expect, so we were very excited the judges came to the same conclusions as our many fans.? Of course, your opinions are the only ones that really matter, but still, we are thrilled to have some recognition in the form of shiny digital medals.

Striped Rum- Striped Pig Distillery
Made with premium southern molasses from Savannah, Georgia.
Striped Rum?s rich flavor is distinctive and different from anything else on the shelf. With heavy notes of vanilla and butterscotch, this is not your average white rum.
It can be enjoyed straight, but its flavors are especially highlighted when shaken with a simple mixer and served over ice.”

Orlando Magazine’s article “Southern Charmer” features some of Charleston’s local highlights- including Striped Pig.
“Southern hospitality?lots of destinations brag about it. Charleston, South Carolina, delivers it, in a setting steeped in rich Colonial and Civil War history amid historic homes and cobblestone streets. You?ll find no thrill rides here. Instead, the thrill is in the storied charm of this Low Country jewel, rated favorite U.S. city by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler four years in a row.
Here?s a Charleston sampler. Dig in, y?all.
Would you prefer tea or moonshine? You can sample both?locally produced. South of the city on Wadmalaw Island is the 127-acre Charleston Tea Plantation, which offers a trolley excursion through the only working tea plantation in the United States, along with a fascinating factory tour. (Trivia break: Only the top few leaves of the bushy tea plant are harvested for what you drink.) Also just outside of downtown is the Striped Pig Distillery, where affable owner Todd Weiss concocts eye-opening spirits and offers tours during which he demystifies the process of making bourbon, spiced rum and, yes, moonshine. Free tastings of the latter will make your jowls quiver a bit, but rest assured you will still be capable of purchasing bottles of the Pig?s amazing product at tour?s end.”

Quarter-Life Quarterback blogger writes the playbook for living life to the fullest in your mid-twenties.
“This past weekend, Paul and I had the awesome opportunity to experience the newest tour offered by?Charleston Culinary Tours, the Charleston Distillery Tour.
The 3.5 hour long tour is $50 per person and includes tours of three local micro distilleries, tastings at each, and a cocktail made with one of the liquors by local mixologists. It also includes transportation, snacks, water, and a lot of insight from Charleston Culinary Tour tour guides.
We met our tour group at the Charleston Visitors Center Bus Shed, and the van was easy to find. Even though this is a newer tour, the van already has ?Charleston Distillery Tours? on the side ? we definitely appreciated this because there are a lot of things going on in that bus shed!
Once on the bus, our tour guides, Oscar and Glenn, gave us background information about the distillery scene in Charleston. Microdistilleries are a new addition to the Charleston foodie scene, despite the fact that there are well over 1000 bars in Charleston, and that we are, as we learned, a town of liquor drinkers.
Our first stop was Striped Pig Distillery, where we got to meet Johnny. Johnny is the founder/owner/lead distiller at Striped Pig and his passion was infectious. We loved learning about his journey to begin selling his own booze, as well as some fun tidbits about how beer changed the world.
What we loved:
- The liquor! My favorite was the spiced rum, which is brewed with vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, and?molasses. The flavor reminded me of a sugar cookie, and I think it would taste bomb.com in a decadent French toast recipe.?We also tried their gin, vodka, and white rum. Johnny prides himself in producing really clean, drinkable liquors, and it totally comes through in the taste.
- Johnny. Seriously, Johnny is just cool. Both Paul and I agreed that we wish we could work for him, for free, and then have a drink with him afterwards. Like I mentioned, he was SO passionate about teaching about distilling. One cool thing we learned: the term ?proof (as in 100 proof)? comes from back in the old days when people literally asked for proof that the alcohol was good. They proved it by lighting their booze on fire!
- The name. The name Striped Pig is derived from history. During Temperance, it was illegal to sell liquor under 15 gallons. So, a clever rum seller instead sold tours to view a pig painted with stripes. And, following their tour, were given a glass of rum. The historical significance of the name mirrors Johnny?s passion for?the history of beer and liquor in America.”

Thornhill Farm pig enjoying Striped Pig Distillery mash.
At Striped Pig Distillery, we try to make sure every resource we use to make our spirits is used efficiently, therefore producing as little waste as possible. We donate our left over mash to several local farms to feed their pigs, one of which is Thornhill Farm in McClellanville, SC. Thornhill Farm is especially close to our heart because the work that they do with individuals and families touched by disabilities. They helped found Adaptive Gardens of the Lowcountry which helps teach those with disabilities how to be sustainable and grow their own food. You can learn more about the work that they do on their website at ourlocalfoods.com. We are proud to give back to this amazing farm in any way that we can!
We were thrilled to be voted “Best Cocktail” at the 2nd annual Lowcountry Hoedown on November 9th! We?served our Striped Rum and 120 proof Striped ?Shine. The rum was mixed with locally made Jack Rudy Grenadine and Newtonian Beverage Company Bitters to make Charleston Striped Rum Punch. The ?Shine was used to make the Striped ?Shine Ginger and Lemongrass cocktail. All of the ingredients used to make the cocktails were locally sourced. A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who supported us, we had a blast!
