According to Prohibition History, state militia units frequently gathered on parade grounds to practice drills; thus attracting many local onlookers as well as vendors. On one particular instance, a rum seller raised a flag of a hog “disguised in paint”, advertising to locals that they could find a “natural curiosity” inside the tent. Little did they know, the “natural curiosity” was accompanied by a glass of delicious rum.

Fast forward to today, and after opening their doors in 2013 Striped Pig Distillery, Charleston’s first micro-distillery, still carries on the Striped Pig icon. With their close-knit team of five, their process, (learn more about the meticulous process here) is handcrafted from start to finish, begins and ends on Myer’s Farm in Bowman, South Carolina.
