The first legal moonshine distillery since prohibition is now open for business in Spartanburg. Rock Bottom Distillers has been open for a month now and the owners are ready to introduce themselves to the Upstate.
William and Steve Noblin both said being a moonshiner is a hobby for now.
"We are both getting a little older and we wanted something to do when they retired," said William Noblin.
They have five flavors that will include straight white moonshine and apple pie, plus some fruit shines that include pineapple, strawberry and blueberry. They both admit it was a long road before they finalized their starting flavors.
"It took us about 11 months to get through the permitting process," he said.
They said Palmetto Spirits in Spartanburg on Reidville Road will distribute their product and you can go to their website at: http://www.rockbottomdistillers.com/.
You can also check out their taste testing this Friday evening at Palmetto Spirits in Spartanburg from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
