After about a year of Monday afternoon meetings around a table at a local restaurant, Keith Nordan and Chris Hollifield decided to open up Carolina Distillery. The first building the distillery was located in was an old carriage house in downtown Lenoir. That is where the apple brandy got it's name  "Carriage House Apple Brandy". Carolina Distillery currently makes , owns, and ship Carriage House Apple Brandy, Carriage House Strawberry Infusion Brandy, Carriage House White, and Carolina Shine Apple Pie is coming soon.

The recipes for these wonderful liquors go back generations, including the award winning Apple Brandy. Moonshiners use to use whatever was available to them if they had no corn. They used fruit such as peaches, apples, strawberries, or whatever kind of fruit they would have on hand. The apple brandy is 80 proof, the white is 90 proof, strawberry is 60 proof, and the apple pie is 70 proof.

Keith Nordan, Chris Hollified, and Tim Sisk(Hippy) are responsible for the day to day operations of Carolina Distillery. Chris and Tim have past experience in the distillation of spirits. Keith’s history was in business management.

Carolina Distillery has been in business since 2008 where they started in a 5,000 square foot building. Carolina Distillery has since moved into a larger 40,000 square foot building in order to accommodate all the orders. They are now located at 1001 West Ave. NW, Lenoir, NC, 28645.
