Palmetto Distillery Opens New Retail Location Inside Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport

Anderson, S.C. – January 4, 2018 – Palmetto Distillery and the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, known as the GSP partner together for the grand opening of the newest retail location of Palmetto Distillery in the Grand Hall. The GSP retail store will carry all of the locals favorite whiskey’s and moonshines and will be available for purchase and carry on for the convenience of GSP Airport travelers. The new location will be opening any day now.

Palmetto Distillery, the local Anderson, South Carolina family owned and operated distillery is opening a new retail location inside of GSP – the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport. The GSP airport is located in upstate Greenville, South Carolina ideally positioned between Atlanta and Charlotte just off of Interstate-85.

Palmetto Distillery is located in the heart of Anderson, S.C. and is the first micro-distillery in South Carolina to produce Palmetto Moonshine, South Carolina’s First Legal Moonshine and Palmetto Whiskey, South Carolina’s Most Awarded Craft Whiskey. Palmetto Distillery also has the distinction of being the South Carolina Whiskey Distillery of the Year, as voted by the New York International Spirits Competition. 

Travelers planning to pick up last-minute gifts before their flight out of Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport will be able to purchase one extra item for the flight home – moonshine. The store is located right beyond the TSA checkpoint, across from Chick-fil-A and next to Dunkin’ Donuts and is due to open any day now.

GSP announced on Twitter that Anderson-based Palmetto Distillery plans to sell its popular moonshine at the airport along with the company’s other retail items which is slated to be open any day. Started by brothers Trey and Bryan Boggs, Palmetto Distillery sells whiskey and five flavors of moonshine: white lightening, strawberry, peach, blackberry and apple pie.

All of Palmetto Distillery’s products are crafted from original recipes and mash bills passed down for over 100 years. At its core, Palmetto Distillery is dedicated to preserving the methods and traditions of those historic moonshiners who came before them. The proprietors, Bryan and Trey Boggs are descendants of moonshiners and passionate about preserving the heritage and traditions of this Southern way of life. 

“Because GSP wanted to showcase a local company with a rich history inside the new Grand Hall that the airport is building, they extended a special invitation to us at Palmetto Distillery to join and become a part of new expansion project,” explained Bryan Boggs, Palmetto Co-Owner, “the GSP is projected to be opened officially in the first part of the New Year.”

The GSP Palmetto retail location will carry the well-respected and famous South Carolina brands that locals have enjoyed for many years including favorites Palmetto Whiskey, Palmetto Moonshine, Apple Pie, Peach, Blackberry, Strawberry, White Lightning and Bootlegger proof 130 Proof.

Hudson retail, located next to Dunkin Donuts in the Grand Hall have been carrying Palmetto’s pantry goods, including their Margarita Mix, Bloody Mary Mix, Tiger Tang, apple pie and blackberry, strawberry preserves, BBQ sauce, and goat soaps made locally in Anderson, for the last few years.

“It’s very exciting to think of all these travelers that are coming in and out of Greenville-Spartanburg,” Trey Boggs said. “Of all the gimmicky things you can buy at an airport, I’d much rather have a jar of moonshine. And if someone is traveling back to where they’re from, I would want them to bring me a jar of moonshine.”

GSP Airport travelers will be able to carry their purchase onto the plane once they have passed through TSA. Customers wanting to take some of the local flavor with them can now do so by purchasing in the already checked point area and put their items in their carry-on bags.

The announcement of Palmetto Distillery moonshine comes as the airport’s $125 million renovation started in June 2012. Consumers all over the country have been enjoying Palmetto’s whiskeys, moonshines, and other pantry products by purchasing online for years.

“Palmetto’s Myrtle Beach retail location opened in the spring of 2014 has been very successful with the millions of travelers visiting the beautiful beaches along the East Coast,” reflects Trey Boggs, Co-Owner. “Palmetto is excited to showcase our brands to the rest of the world passing through the upstate of South Carolina.”

Palmetto Distillery is only getting started with its aggressive expansion plan for 2018 as it also eyes a New Year partnership with the Capital One Arena, a Washington, D.C. landmark and local and tourist hotspot.
