Muddy River Distillery

In Mount Holly, North Carolina

Muddy River Distillery has transformed the historic Mount Holly Cotton Mill into a vibrant distillery, cocktail bar, and event space on Dutchman's Creek in Mount Holly, NC. The mill, dating back to 1875, is still the oldest in the county. After extensive restoration, the distillery now serves as a hub for craft rum enthusiasts and those looking to enjoy a unique Carolinian experience.

The Experience:

At Muddy River Distillery, there's something for everyone. Visitors can savor seasonal cocktails, learn the art of mixology in our cocktail classes, and immerse themselves in the beauty of our 5-acre property along Dutchman's Creek. We strive to create a welcoming atmosphere for all, whether you're enjoying a laid-back day with family and friends or attending one of our exciting music and food festivals.

Our Products:

Muddy River Distillery offers a diverse range of Carolina rums, including Silver, Spiced, Coffee, Basil, Coconut, and the aged Queen Charlotte Rum. These premium rums are available at North Carolina ABC stores, South Carolina packaging stores, and the Mill Distillery in Mount Holly.
