High Wire Distilling Co. Expanding Operations In Charleston County

High Wire Distilling Co., a producer of premium, handcrafted small batch spirits with an agricultural focus, recently announced plans to expand its operations in Charleston County. The $3 million investment will create 45 jobs.

High Wire Distilling Co. is dedicated to producing high-quality spirits such as gin, whiskey, amaro, and small batch fruit brandies using a culinary approach. Located at 311 Huger Street, High Wire Distilling Co.'s new facility will allow the company to expand production capacity and grow its whiskey program. It will also include a larger tasting room that will educate visitors about spirits, local agriculture, and the distilling process.

High Wire Distilling Co. is committed to using locally-sourced products and partners with area farms. The company uses approximately 80% of Certified South Carolina Grown grain and fruit in its spirits, including locally-renowned Jimmy Red corn.

"We are thrilled to announce that High Wire Distilling Co. will be moving to a new downtown home in early 2020, just around the corner from our current distillery and tasting room," said Ann Marshall, founder. "Our company has seen much success in the past few years, and we are quickly outgrowing our original home. We can't wait to welcome visitors to our new Tasting Room and offer behind-the-scenes glimpses of our expanded production facility and barrel-aging warehouse. The city of Charleston has been an incredibly supportive and vibrant catalyst for the growth of our company, and we look forward to being an integral part of this community for many years to come."
