HAPPY NATIONAL AGRICULTURE WEEK!
Yesterday, March 18th, 2018, marked the beginning of National Agriculture Week here in the United States. As one of North Carolina’s top industries (bringing in 17% of the state’s income ~ more than $84 billion!), agriculture is the number one industry here in Iredell County! Farming and agribusiness generated a $662 million dollar impact and 15% of the county’s workforce in 2015, which is a direct result of our county’s rural heritage of more than 200 years of farming and forestry practices.
We are proud to say that Southern Distilling Company uses locally-sourced grains to produce our bourbon whiskey, rye whiskey and bourbon cream liqueur products and sends a special thank you to all the people who work in acres and not hours. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do.
