Our Story...

In 2013, we started with a small dream: to make an all-American version of a Scottish spiced whisky liqueur.  It had to be great on its own yet play well with others.  And, we had to be proud to introduce people to it.  After many hundreds of versions, experimenting with different combinations of botanicals and sweeteners, we discovered the perfect combination: a nine-spice tea with a touch of wildflower honey blended into a 45% wheat bourbon.  From a stovetop creation, we scaled up production in leased facilities and jumped in the car to begin introducing Mystic to people throughout the Southeast.  That’s how Mystic Bourbon Liqueur was born. 

As we make Mystic today, we open up our bourbon barrels, taste the aging spirit and judge when it’s ready — does it have a beautiful amber color, has it picked up enough vanilla flavor from the barrel, has it matured and refined? Because each barrel is unique, the bourbon from each barrel is also unique. And some were beyond amazing.  We decided we shouldn’t be selfish; others should also get to experience bourbon fresh from the cask, too.  So, a couple years ago, we introduced Heart of Mystic: bourbon we take from the barrel, without chill filtering or proofing water, directly into the bottle.   

Tours

Tour the Triangle’s only farm distillery!  Explore how we create the ultimate handmade small batch bourbon from the ground up. See the production process first-hand from the grain fields to the bottling line, and taste the grains, aging spirits and finished products. Pull the bung on a barrel of aging Heart of Mystic Bourbon and learn the changes that occur as the spirit matures. Savor the highest quality spirits at our tasting room, and learn about our special releases. Relax on our covered porch within sight of our fields and ponds, and take a walking tour of the farm.

Single Barrel Experience

Have you ever wished you could be a bourbon distiller?  Are you looking for an incredible gift that will last a lifetime?  The customized and private Single Barrel Experience allows you to spend a day creating a barrel of bourbon and return each year for a sampling of the maturing spirit.

Whiskey University

Educate your mind and your palate! This acclaimed program takes you through the history of whiskey from the ancient sands of Egypt to the American Bourbon tradition.  Along the way we learn how the process unique to each whiskey produces that style’s distinctive flavor characteristics, and we learn about the equipment and process used at Mystic Farm and Distillery.
