About Striped Pig Distillery
Striped Pig helped revive the distillery scene in Charleston when it opened its doors in North Charleston in 2013, becoming the holy city’s first distillery since Prohibition. Its origin story is one of "great curiosity" and a nod to some tongue-in-cheek US history, brought to life by their beloved Striped Pig mascot Jackson, who some may remember made appearances at the Distillery and even downtown. Since those early days, the Pig has continued its support of the community, expanded its lineup, received numerous accolades and awards, and has kept driving the distillery scene in Charleston and the wider industry forward with firsts, like its Bottled in Bond Bourbon release and launching the first bourbon on the blockchain.

Striped Pig is the only WBENC certified soon to be Distillery-Brewery in the area, and is dedicated to fostering community growth through initiatives like its Sip & Share platform, helping change the meaning of drinking responsibly, delivering socially responsible beverages, while simultaneously impacting the economic empowerment of communities, and non-profits like MiniSkirt, which mentors young women aged 14-24 to grow their financial literacy, entrepreneurship, business and life skills. CEO Pixie Paula Dezzutti was recently honored in Forbes 50 over 50 and is author of Amazon #1 best seller Alphabet Soup: The ABCs of NFTs and Other Blockchain Acronyms.
