Overview

Hilton Head Distillery is a producer of craft, small batch rum and vodka. Guests are invited to enjoy a tour of the facility and a tasting flight of our products. We also have an extensive gift shop featuring Hilton Head branded items and gifts from local craftsman. Call ahead or visit our website to book your visit! Hilton Head Distillery was founded by two world-class, small batch distilleries that came together and brought their respective expertise in Carolina whiskey and Caribbean rum to the table, sharing stories, traditions, and techniques along the way. The result was the creation of a high-tech facility where expertise and craft meets innovation. We measure, cut, and blend every element with a careful, artisanal hand, using age-old distillation techniques coupled with new-age technology and a local twist. Come visit us and take a tour. We'd love to show you our craft and swap stories over some great craft spirits!

It was $10 to taste the different rums that they make. You then can buy bottles. Better deal is next door at the winery. There is no charge to taste a large selection of wines.

That toasted coconut rum is a MUST try. One of the best things I have ever put in my mouth! Sadly my bottle broke on the way home. If I’m ever in Hilton Head Island again the distillery will be one of my first stops!More

It was $20 per person like mentioned before but we told them we saw them on Trip Advisor and saved $5 per person. We were there the end of August 2017.
