In the early 1800's, whiskey production was a common means of supplementing farm income. Self-sufficient individuals converted their home-grown grains into a liquid commodity. Competition honed the skills of these rural distillers who strove to create a demand for their own special whiskeys.
Savor the Taste of
Prohibition made the trade illegal and forced many out of production. More daring and industrious entrepreneurs practiced their trade in hidden locations, often late at night, tending their stills and delivering product by the light of the southern moon to avoid detection - a practice which resulted in its infamous "Moonshine" nickname. It would be rare to overhear a conversation about the moonshine legacy of rural North Carolina without the mention of "Broadslab," the infamous Moonshine Capital of Johnston County. Broadslab has been home to my family for many generations, and is deservedly the namesake of our distillery.
Nearly 150 years and the skills, knowledge, and techniques of five generations of whiskey makers - beginning with my Great-Great Grandfather back in the late 1800s - have gone into perfecting the corn whiskeys we produce.
While some distilleries purchase commercially available grain alcohol, which they simply bottle, label and sell, we create authentic, artisan crafted, products that build reputations, create legends, and endure time and trials through taste and quality.
