To produce this wonderful blue agave tequila, Cape Fear Distillery partnered with one of the oldest tequila distilleries in Mexico. Our special production technique requires the agave pinas to be trimmed close to the heart with little green leafy exposure, eliminating waxy texture and ensuring cleaner distillation. The agave is then cooked slowly in centuries-old stone brick ovens to retain its sweet, natural, mellow flavors. After shredding the agave juice is fermented for 48-60 hours (mass produced tequilas are fermented only 10-12 hours) to produce a full-bodied flavor. Finally, the agave juice is twice-distilled in alembic “pot stills,” eliminating volatile alcohols and enriching the ABV content to 55% before bottling. iSalud!

Drawing from the rich history and natural beauty of the Cape Fear region, Cape Fear Distillery has been crafting award-winning spirits with a unique, artisanal touch since its inception. Nestled in the heart of Southeastern North Carolina, it was the first distillery to grace the region, starting its journey with a humble gin production in a small room with a single pot still. The gin, a delightful blend of juniper, citrus, and a hint of lavender, quickly gained national recognition, prompting the distillery to expand its operations.
In response to the growing demand, Cape Fear Distillery moved to a larger facility, equipped with larger stills and complete manufacturing capabilities. Today, it proudly produces five distinct spirits, each carrying the Cape Fear name, known and loved across the country. The distillery’s offerings now include rum, sourced from local molasses, a six-year-old whiskey, a two-year-old bourbon, and a soon-to-be-released vodka, in addition to the gin that started it all.
The distillery’s commitment to quality and authenticity is evident in its production process. For instance, the Solera Whiskey, a product of a painstakingly arduous and time-consuming process, has been in the works since 2015. This unique method involves a cascading effect of transferring whiskey between three tiers of barrels, ensuring a consistent, complex flavor that is hard to find elsewhere.
Cape Fear Distillery’s spirits have not only won multiple national and international awards for taste and design but have also found their way to shelves in restaurants and ABC stores in Las Vegas, Florida, and other parts of the country. The distillery’s commitment to conservation is also noteworthy, with a portion of the sales from some products going towards supporting U.S. coastal ecological initiatives.
Cape Fear Distillery’s journey is a testament to its dedication to crafting high-quality spirits while preserving and celebrating the region’s natural resources. As it continues to grow and innovate, it remains rooted in its commitment to quality, authenticity, and environmental stewardship, setting it apart in the world of spirits.
