From the Appalachian Mountains to the Carolina coast, the smooth spirits of Kentucky Mist Distillery are now being poured at Broadway at the Beach! The new craft distillery boasts unique flavors of moonshine and vodka from today and yesteryear as it brings the heritage of Eastern Kentucky to Myrtle Beach.
The founding of Kentucky Mist dates back to the days of American Prohibition or as Kentucky Misters call it, the dark ages! Distilling corn liquor and bootlegging in the Appalachian Mountains in Whitesburg, Kentucky was the family business for Henry Holbrook. The history of Mr. Holbrook's Kentucky Mist has a few twists and turns and even includes the notorious, Al Capone. To read about it, click here.
So from the "dark ages" to today's new generation of moonshiners, Colin Fultz, Henry Holbrook's Grandson has taken over the family business and recently opened a brand new store at Broadway.
It's not all about the moonshine, but also their award winning vodka! In fact, their 1902 Whitesburg Vodka is the only barrel vodka in the United States, winning a gold medal at the 2017 Sip Awards! Talk about a prestigious pour!
Now when it comes to the variety of moonshine, the sweet fruity sky is the limit as flavors include Apple Pie, Caramel Apple, and infusions featuring blackberry, cherry, cranberry, grape, peach and lemonade.
Not sure which one you want to take home? They can help you decide as you sample the moonshine sweetness. For just $5, you can sample six half oz. shots. Of course, you will have to be 21 years of age to sample and purchase!
Along with your beverage of choice, you can also take home a Kentucky Mist shirt, mug, coozie, sweet treats and more!
So join Broadway at the Beach as we welcome this new distillery, where you can taste the history, heritage and the home of Kentucky Mist Moonshine!
