You may be asking yourself, what is Six & Twenty? Where does this name come from? It is actually derived from a love story, & we all love a good love story…
Legend has it that before the Revolutionary War, a Choctaw maiden, Issaqueena, was captured by the Cherokee Chief & made a slave. She overheard the Cherokee planning an attack on the trading post that housed her British lover. In an effort to warn him, she escaped & traveled on a swift pony ninety six miles to save him. Along the way, she named several geographical points, based on the distance from the Cherokee village (which is now drowned in Lake Keowee). From her starting point, she named Twelve Mile, Three & Twenty, and Six & Twenty Creeks on Lake Hartwell. She also named the towns of Six Mile & finally Ninety Six. The attack was unsuccessful, & the two were married shortly after.
You guessed it…Our distillery is approximately 26 miles from the original Keowee village. Six & Twenty Distillery produces whiskey that contains South Carolina grown, soft red winter wheat. The same type bakeries use to make pastries & sweet cakes. This gives our whiskey a soft, smooth, sweet, palatable taste. Are you feeling the love?
