Former Managing Editor, Carolina Journal
Distilleries in North Carolina are thriving, despite a labyrinth of Prohibition-era rules and regulations. And through it all, distillers in the Old North State have persevered, and they’re starting to thrive. In this presentation, John Trump – the author of “Still & Barrel” – will trace the history of manufacturing moonshine whiskey, gin, vodka, and rum. He’ll also talk about the almost 50 distilleries that are now in business, making rum, red-wheat organic whiskey, and sweet potato vodka, among many others.
Here is the video from the event.
