The inspiration for Palmetto Whiskey comes from the South Carolina Dispensary. The Dispensary was a state controlled monopoly on liquor sales in South Carolina which operated from 1893-1915. During this time period the Dispensary was responsible for almost every means of production; this included everything from sourcing the mash bill, distilling the liquor and even creating the bottles! To accomplish this task, the Dispensary employed glass makers and craftsmen that created bottles unique to the Palmetto State and what many consider to be works of art. The bottles being produced from 1893-1900 featured an embossed palmetto tree with crossed logs under the base of the trunk. It was this bottle design from which Trey and Bryan drew inspiration when creating the Palmetto Whiskey bottle! Palmetto Whiskey is crafted with care in small batches and a true southern tradition.
