Since you will be our guest here in the beautiful south, we will start with our personal favorite. Moonshine! We are talking about Palmetto Moonshine from Palmetto Distillery which is a company with deep roots and a lot of history in the palmetto state, and in the Moonshine business. Started by brothers Trey and Bryan Boggs their mission is to honor their long standing heritage by creating whiskey unmatched by taste or quality.
Palmetto Moonshine is easy to find here at the beach. They are located at 4801 S. Kings Hwy. From the Paradise Resort you are only going to head south about 10 minutes, depending on traffic. Once at the distillery you will find it’s probably bigger than you imagined at 3,000 square feet. Be sure to take advantage of their FREE tour and learn the history of how moonshine is made and the specific history of this local SC moonshine creation. Of course for those in your party over the age of 21 (valid ID required), there are FREE tastings to enjoy and indulge in. Be warned though, this southern treasure will be one you will want to take home with you. There is a souvenir shop and you are able to purchase all of the flavors of Palmetto Moonshine…of which there are plentiful.
Now, let’s move north. Not too far north, but just up Kings Hwy to North Myrtle Beach. Here, there is a little bit of sweetness tucked in between Barefoot Landing and Alligator Adventure. This is Duplin Winery and here you are in for a sweet treat. They say that life is sweeter with Duplin and there is a reason for that. Duplin wine is made from only the very best and the sweetest Muscadine grapes.
While at the winery you can watch their bottling process, unwind in their courtyard, stroll through their shop (where they offer wine accessories and Duplin Gourmet) and of course savor a tasting of all they have to offer. Their tastings are open to those over 21 (with valid ID) with a $10 fee. The tasting fee is put to good use as it provides you with the opportunity to sample up to 10 wines from their specified sheet while also enjoying a scrumptious crackers and dip that complement the wine tasting perfectly. You will probably want to purchase at least one bottle to enjoy here at Paradise Resort while overlooking the gorgeous Atlantic. What could be better?
We have one more stop on our Sip and Shop in Paradise list. This one is a true love of locals. We are talking about New South Brewery here in Myrtle Beach. New South is off the beaten track not too far from downtown Myrtle Beach or from Paradise Resort. Please note that with this hidden Myrtle Beach gem, you will need advance reservations for tours and tastings. It’s not difficult though. You may make yours by going online to https://squareup.com/store/newsouthbrewing
New South is a microbrewery local to our beach town since 1998 and is a favorite of those of us living along the SC coast and many that come to visit and vacation. They have only one mission and that is to supply those living in or visiting South Carolina with fresh and flavorful ales and lagers. They successfully accomplish this goal every single day. Don’t leave without tasting your way through the brewery and deciding on a favorite to take home or to enjoy beachside on your balcony with us at Paradise Resort. You can also peruse their website for local restaurants that proudly pour and serve New South Brewing products so you can put those on your must visits during your stay.
We are pretty sure that you will find this Sip and Shop in Paradise list one that is unique to your vacation and one you will definitely enjoy!
