Behind every drop of spirits from Burnt Church, there’s a story to tell. In fact, there are usually several.
First, there are the stories about the land that inspired us to build our legacy in Bluffton. These are tales of a town at the edge of the world, where Southern charm and grace flow like the waters of the May River Then, there are the stories about the practiced care and dedication that goes into our spirits. These stories we write in grains and spices that coax the finest flavors from inspired fermentation.
And if you’re looking for the best way to experience these stories, it’s through one of our intriguing behind-the-scenes tours.
