In a whirlwind season of parties, receptions, barbecues, and other summertime gatherings, the need to remember a thoughtful host/hostess gift for each party that you attend can add additional stress to your social life.
Every good guest knows the golden rule of fraternizing: never show up to an event empty-handed. You need not fall back on the old standby of a bottle of wine just because you don’t have enough time to look for a unique gift that will leave a lasting impression on your host.
Putting a personalized touch and giving a gift that is genuinely unique will get you remembered and result in additional events added to your already hopping social life. Take a bottle of southern spirits--that will cause quite a stir!
Southern Spirits--A Rich Legacy Of Taste And Intrigue
Our country has a rich heritage of whiskey and moonshine production dating back to the 1790’s when distillers began illegal production to escape the federal “sin” tax that had just been levied on all local whiskey and moonshine distilleries. As a show of defiance, an entire subculture was born out of the need to provide income to destitute farmers and local people in business who needed to make ends meet. Moonshine and whiskey were produced and run through local bootleggers all across the south, evading the watchful eye of the Federal government. Although this isn’t considered the prettiest part of American history, the culture of moonshining and bootlegging contributed significantly to the development of the southern states and those states extending farther north along the Appalachian Trail.
The tone of the historical period surrounding prohibition still seems scandalous and intriguing; like many of the stories yet told of major organized crime and families that were responsible for growing empires that rivaled that of the ancient Romans. Even though most distilleries are now owned and operated by upstanding, law-abiding citizens who pay their taxes and follow ethical business practices, there is still a little bit of a taboo feeling that one gets when purchasing good old southern whiskey and moonshine.

Palmetto distillery is a passionate labor of love for brothers Trey and Bryan Boggs.
