The northeastern corner of Greenville County – an area located in the Appalachian hills – has been known for more than 175 years as Dark Corner, due to its long association with moonshiners. Paying homage to this history, Dark Corner Distillery continues the traditions of the Celts who originally settled there by producing small batch moonshine, including aged whiskey, gin and absinthe. The downtown tasting room offers samples of six spirits, accompanied by a history of each product.

Visitors loved the tastings at Dark Corner Distillery, citing inventive cocktails that pleased even those who weren't whiskey aficionados. Many applauded the reasonable $5 tasting fee, which included a souvenir shot glass, and several visitors suggested purchasing bottles to take home as gifts. While most tasters found the downtown location convenient and the tasting process a fun and quick activity, some complained of long waits during busy times. 

Located on South Main Street in downtown Greenville, Dark Corner Distillery is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tastings, which include a sampling of six spirits and a Dark Corner Distillery shot glass, cost $5. For product details, cocktail recipes and the history of moonshine in the region, visit the distillery's website. Note that you must be 21 years of age to visit the distillery.
