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 Monday-Saturday. 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.
