Southern Grace Distilleries released our first bourbon, Conviction in 2017 and it has been awarded a gold medal at the Micro Liquor awards and a DOUBLE GOLD medal at the Fifty Best Bourbon Competition in New York City. In March 2019 it was awarded Best Bourbon Under 4 Years at the New Orleans Bourbon Festival. We released Conviction Small Batch Bourbon Straight in April 2019.
All of our bourbon is distilled and aged right here at our distillery at the former North Carolina prison that operated from 1929 until 2011. Conviction is the first bourbon to ever (legally) be aged behind bars. Come visit our barrels behind bars and learn how we make our award-winning spirits.
John Trump writes on liquor.com, "it’s remarkably smooth and complex. The nose reveals ripe cherries and a comforting hint of cinnamon, bringing to mind warm apples covered in brown sugar. A sip offers hints of honey and just a touch of oak. The barley brings a soft sweetness, much like an Irish whisky, especially after adding a drop of water. Soft vanilla and bright orange linger on the palate."
You can find Conviction Small Batch Bourbon in NC, SC, LA, IL, CT, OK, MI, NV, VA and Washington, DC.
