Muddy River Distillery

Enjoy the amazing spirits of North Carolina’s first legal rum distillery, Muddy River Distillery. Making its debut in 2012, Muddy River’s handcrafted Carolina Rum has taken the region by storm. In just three short years, they are not only producing the unbelievably smooth Silver Carolina Rum but have now added the Queen Charlotte’s Reserve Carolina Rum, Coconut Flavored and Rum Spiced Carolina Rum to their product offerings. You can see the elaborate process first-hand on a tour of the distillery. Led by owners Robbie Delaney and wife Caroline, you’ll stop to see the two hard-working main stills named Democracy and Liberty. The tours last around 45 minutes and you’ll see the process from fermentation to putting the label on the bottle. Muddy River rums can be found in ABC liquor stores throughout North Carolina, as well as in bars in restaurants. Give one of their remarkable rums a try on your next visit to Gaston County. We promise you’ll come back for more.
