High Wire Distilling Expands Charleston County, South Carolina, Operations

High Wire Distilling Co., a producer of premium, handcrafted small batch spirits with an agricultural focus, plans to invest $3 million in an expansion of its operations in Charleston County, South Carolina.

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.

According to state officials, 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. 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,” said High Wire Distilling Co. Founder Ann Marshall.

"Time and time again, South Carolina has shown it is one of the best places in the world to do business. This expansion announcement by High Wire Distilling Co. is further proof of our pro-business environment, and we're excited to see what this locally-grown company has in store for the future,” Governor Henry McMaster noted.

"South Carolina has consistently shown that it is the right place for companies to do business, and this is especially evident in our growing distilling sector. We congratulate High Wire Distilling Co.'s expansion in Charleston County, and we look forward to seeing them thrive for years to come,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt added.
