NORTH CAROLINA PROUD

OUR STORY

Not long ago, Bruce was sitting on his back porch drinking bourbon and smoking a cigar and a thought came to him.  He texted Michael “Do you want to make booze?” Michael responded “Yes” and soon they were off on their journey. Little did these two men know that in a few short years they’d be producing some of the world’s best-tasting bourbon and owning the #1 micro distillery in America.

THE ROANOKE RIVER

Weldon Mills Distillery is the beneficiary of the pristine Roanoke River Valley water and its many natural springs that act as tributaries. For centuries the waters of the region were sought after by the native Indian tribes, British invaders and Revolutionary armies. Dignitaries and political leaders requested its shipment around the world for their personal consumption. As the base ingredient for our award-winning bourbons, this river not only enhances our products but also provides a beautiful backdrop as you walk the grounds of Weldon Mills.

LOCALLY SOURCED IN NORTH CAROLINA

What’s the old saying, something is only as good as the sum of its parts? Well, in our case, our bourbons are what they are because of the ingredients we use to make them. Everything we use from the water, to the barley, corn and wheat are locally sourced in North Carolina.
