After mashing our grain, and extracting all that we need for making whiskey it is called "spent grain." We have found a great way of re-purposing that grain, and other spent grains from local breweries, by raising heritage hogs on our Whiskey Fed Farm. It's a great way to reduce waste and grow delicious pork! We have the hogs processed at an Animal Welfare Approved and USDA Certified processor. We sell various cuts of pork in our tasting room.
Our Jimmy Red Corn Whiskey is distilled from an heirloom variety of corn grown on Edisto Island, SC by Greg Johnsman of Geechie Boy Mill. Greg and his family grow incredible produce and grains, and mill delicious grits and cornmeal using historic mills.
Greg introduced us to Manning Bair of St. George, SC who grows sugar cane. We've used the fresh pressed cane juice and some of his cane syrup for our recent rum releases. We will do our 2nd annual rum this fall.
Aging whiskey in oak barrels is what we do, and it's awesome. But whiskey is not the only thing that benefits from time aging in barrels. We've partnered with Turtle Creek Coffee here in Columbia, SC for BARREL AGED COFFEES! We've got both Bourbon Barrel and Rye Barrel whole bean coffees for sale in the tasting room.
While you can get the whole beans in our custom packaging at the tasting room, you should head down to Sweet Cream Co. for a cup. Sweet Cream Co. is on Main Street here in Columbia, SC and their house blend is Crouch Distilling Barrel Aged Coffee.
Coffee's great, but what Sweet Cream Co. really does well is, you guessed it, ice cream! Check them out for sure, and ask for the #secrethandshakeflavor.....they've been known to use our bourbon in their delicious ice cream.
