On the Road with James: Southern Grace Distilleries

Based out of what was formerly known as Mt. Pleasant Prison, Southern Grace is a must-see for whiskey enthusiasts.

We’re headed to the clink for a drink this week at Southern Grace Distilleries! Based out of what used to be Mt. Pleasant Prison, the distillery is the first of its kind in the United States. There’s a little something for everyone in this homely Cabarrus County penitentiary from smooth whiskey tasting to ghost tours. Get comfortable — we may be here for a while.

Southern Grace Distilleries is located at 130 Dutch Road, Mount Pleasant, North Carolina 28124.
