Striped Pig Distillery, a woman-owned and family-operated distillery, today announced plans to expand operations in Charleston County. The company says they will invest $10 million and create more than 50 new jobs.
Promoted as Charleston’s first distillery since Prohibition, Striped Pig Distillery specializes in spirits like bourbon gin, rum, organic vodka, and flavored iterations of each spirit. The company sources ingredients for its award-winning spirits regionally and works with local organizations to give back to community causes through its Sip & Share program.
“Nothing is more important to me than unconditional love and possibility,” said Striped Pig Distillery Chief Executive Officer Pixie Paula Dezzutti. “My children, friends and community family have supported me during the most difficult times to flourish in a challenging male-dominated industry. We are thrilled to expand our manufacturing line here in North Charleston to fulfill the growing regional, national and international demand for our spirits. Proudly, South Carolina is home, but our mission is being felt globally.”
Located at 2225 Old School Drive in North Charleston, Striped Pig Distillery’s expansion will add 24,000 square feet to its existing facility to accommodate a new bottling line and event space. The expansion is expected to be completed by summer of 2023.
