Mayberry Spirits Distillery – Mount Airy NC

RATING: ♦♦♦♦

Mount Airy was the inspiration for the fictional town of Mayberry on the Andy Griffith Show, which is how this distillery got its name.

The small production area is arranged for easy viewing as the tour guide (one of the owners) explains the art of making whiskey, and there is whiskey tasting at the end of the tour. 

Mayberry Spirits values community, sustainability, and authenticity. They use a sorghum grain instead of corn in the production of their whiskies. Not only is sorghum naturally gluten-free, but it is a drought resistant and sustainable crop.

In addition to whiskey, they produce flavorings such as vanilla and other extracts, sugars and salts, and they sell gift items.
