Located in the heart of historic downtown Charleston, SC, High Wire Distilling Company is dedicated to making premium, small batch spirits. Our approach is simple: seek the finest ingredients available and develop recipes using a creative, culinary approach. All of our products are batch distilled in a hand-hammered, German copper still to create the finest Southern spirits available.
Founded by husband and wife team, Scott Blackwell and Ann Marshall, High Wire was born of a desire to introduce small batch, handmade, craft spirits to South Carolina. A lifelong “serial entrepreneur,” Scott recently sold his former business, a natural and organic bakery called Immaculate Baking Company, to General Mills. The couple quickly began developing business plans for the distillery, an endeavor that allowed them to combine their passion for small business with their love of high quality artisan spirits.
High Wire Distilling is producing a distinctive line of small batch spirits using specialized ingredients. Scott, a Culinary Institute of America trained baker, applies his knowledge of artisanal grains and culinary techniques to the spirits he creates. With a main focus on local, unique ingredients, the distillery also features an apothecary area where experimental bench formulas can be created and tested in a small-scale format. In addition to their core products, High Wire also produces a series of limited edition creations only available at certain times of the year.
