Independent Distilling Co.
Independent Distilling Co. doesn't want to imitate anyone's favorite bourbon or whiskey or rum. No, the locals behind this distillery strive for something entirely their own: spirits that celebrate Georgia‘s agriculture and embody the "soul of the South." How do they do it? By sourcing local ingredients, producing the liquor in small batches, and doing absolutely everything in-house—from mashing and fermenting the grain to sealing up the bottle. Here's a look at their signature spirits:
- Hellbender Corn Whiskey: It all starts with Georgia–grown corn, which Independent's team mashes by hand and distills twice in a traditional copper-pot still. The owners prefer to sip it neat, but it also makes a mean cocktail.
- Independent Rum: Grade-A molasses ferments completely before Independent distills it into white rum. Use this robust spirit in mixed drinks, or serve it with just a squeeze of lime.
