Micro Distillery Builds on Recent Successes

HOLLYWOOD(Spiritsman)4/4/13/–Having been named the 2012 South Carolina Distillery of the Year by the New York International Spirits Competition, Dark Corner Distillery continues to prove themselves by receiving a Gold Medal and “Best of Category” award for their highly coveted Moonshine Corn Whiskey at the 10th Annual American Distilling Institute (ADI) Craft Spirits Conference held in Denver.

The Institute is host to the first craft spirits competition in America where entries are judged blindly on nose, palate, balance and finish. At this year’s conference which is held all of this week, 23 gold medals, 44 silver medals, and 46 bronze medals were given out, totaling only 37 percent of participants.












A true American settler’s style whiskey, our original is made with corn, red wheat, barley and rye. Artfully distilled in a handmade 80-gallon copper pot still, and bottled at 100 proof, our moonshine is ultra-smooth and sure to become your favorite sipping whiskey.

“We’re thrilled to be honored with a gold medal this year after taking home silver in 2012 at our first-ever ADI conference. We’ve focused on perfecting our Moonshine, and today the hard work has paid off” says distillery founder Joe Fenten.


Founded in 2011, Dark Corner Distillery is a Greenville, SC based micro distillery which produces high-quality distilled spirits for those with discerning taste. Defined by heritage, the distillery offers visitors a unique experience including product tastings, distillery tours and distiller training courses.
