The bridge over the river, with my dad and sister #6.
While visiting Greenville, SC last weekend for my cousin’s wedding, my family and I had some down time to hang out in town on Saturday. My dad and the hubs headed to of all things a distillery, conveniently on the main street of town. After bringing back a bag of two different kinds, they asked my mom and I to come back and have a look at the place. It was such a neat concept, and they distilled it right in the shop!
From their site
What happens when two entrepreneurial electrical engineers drink beer and whiskey over a hot meal? DARK CORNER DISTILLERY is born! With recent state micro distillery legislation being passed, it was a no brainer that founders Joe Fenten and Richard Wenger jump in feet first to become involved in the micro distilled spirits renaissance taking place across America and bring it home to Greenville, SC.
The spirits industry in general is dominated by a few distilleries who mass produce products that flood the market with industrial grade lower quality spirits. DARK CORNER was conceived to be different, to use quality ingredients and produce spirits in time tested ways that allow the natural flavors to come through. We may never dominate the shelves but we will always be true to the craft of our ancestors and true to our customers.
Our mission is to produce high quality spirits in the tradition of our ancestors, preserve local heritage and history, and support environmental sustainability. Below are the things that have helped us succeed in our mission.
① We designed and built our own equipment to guarantee authenticity.
② We use the best tasting water in America in all of our recipes.
③ We have a retail store and mini museum to showcase history and heritage.
④ We donate our spent grains to local meat processor.
⑤ We donate our methanol by-products to local bio diesel distillery.
⑥ We have a recycled bottle program that rewards the customer.
We ended up with the Honeysuckle Moonshine. My mom’s face says it all!
If you’re ever in the area, you should definitely check them out!
Has anyone checked out Tory Burch‘s summer sale, that started today? I picked up this ensemble for $80 off!
And here’s an added tip, if you want it shipped for free, go to her Facebook Shop, and order it there. It takes you to the regular Tory Burch site when you check out, minus the $10 shipping fee.
I feel like Lilly Pulitzer has been a hot topic this week, and how fitting that my agenda from Lifeguard Press arrived yesterday, on National Wear Your Lilly Day! I’m loving everything about it!
Can’t wait to use mine, come August!
And while we’re on the subject, I thought I’d throw a Lilly-themed giveaway! I know many of you didn’t get a chance to get to a Lilly store yesterday, you may not live near one, or the extra goodies may have run out at your local store. So, I’ve decided to give my goodies away to you! Leave a comment here. I’ll give the first winner the earrings and the second winner, the frame.
The giveaway will end on Monday, June 25th, at midnight.
Couldn’t leave y’all without a photo of the girls. W finished her swimming lessons today, and was awarded ice cream! They were in heaven…especially when it was 96 degrees out!!
