Charleston's First Distillery Since Prohibition


Located in the heart of historic downtown Charleston, SC, High Wire is dedicated to making premium, handcrafted, small batch spirits. Our approach is simple:  seek the finest ingredients available and develop recipes using a creative, culinary approach. 

High Wire produces a distinctive line of small batch spirits including gin, rum, whiskey, and vodka using premium, specialized ingredients. Owner/Distiller Scott Blackwell, a CIA trained baker, applies his knowledge of artisanal grains and culinary techniques to the spirits he creates.

A place locals and visitors can frequent, High Wire offers tours and tastings Thursday-Saturday from 1PM to 6PM.  Tours provide an overview of the distilling process and allow guests an opportunity to see the still, mash tun, fermentation tanks, barrel aging, and bottling operations in action.
