Downtown Laurens, South Carolina is a historic community with roots that go back to the mid-18th century. Five roads intersect that lead to a charming and vibrant public square that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. While still proud of its history, downtown Laurens is not resting on its laurels and living in the past. The public square is a beehive of activity with more than 140,000 square feet of commercial space housing unique shops, corner cafes, fine dining, and popular pubs.
Carolina Moon Distillery aims to recapture the craft and culture of small-scale distilling that our area is historically known for. Through the use of local ingredients, and a little know-how, they produce a range of spirits such as vodka, whiskey, bourbon, moonshine, and rum.
Visit their location for a tour of the distillery and a seat in the tasting room. Be sure to try their signature 116 proof Rabbit Spit moonshine—”Edgefield Whiskey… Mean enough to make a rabbit spit in a bull dog’s face!” – Judge Robert Davore (circa 1820).
Stop by Tuesdays through Saturdays at 116 Court House Square, Edgefield, SC 29824.
