Jeremy Norris, Broadslab owner and master distiller, uses a family-inspired shine recipe passed down over five generations. Visitors can now take tours of the distillery and get "shine" samples in the tasting room. Fee for the tour is $12.00 per person, and the gift shop on site offers Broadslab merchandise.
The tasting room is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday from 12-5pm or a little later. Visitors will learn about Jeremy's process which involves locally grown and milled corn and hand-made oak barrels crafted by Jeremy himself and used to age the Broadslab Legacy product to perfection. Broadslab also produces a white rum, a spiced rum, and traditional moonshine which is the "real deal".
Visitors will enjoy meeting this master distiller who has preserved the legacy of this region, long known for the quality and quantity of home-brewed whiskey. Jeremy learned his craft from his grandfather and offers a true "dirt to bottle" product, even growing corn used at the distillery on the family farm. Broadslab is available for sale in ABC stores in North Carolina and is distributed in four states. Jeremy has appeared on the Chef and the Farmer television series and has been featured in several promotions with the Johnston County Visitors Bureau and media events with Visit NC.
Broadslab's tasting room is located just a few miles from I-95, at 4870 NC HWY 50 South, Benson, NC and will have regular hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 12-5pm. For more information call 919-207-1366 or visit the website, www.broadslabdistillery.com
