Making beautiful, handmade craft spirits is our passion. Every drop of Doc Porter's vodka, gin, bourbon, & rye whiskey is made from scratch using locally-sourced grains from Marshville and Asheville, North Carolina.To visit Doc Porter's Distillery on your holiday in Charlotte, and find out what else Charlotte has to offer, use our Charlotte.
We believe in supporting local farmers and North Carolina agriculture, which is just one reason we don't use any processed ethanol (Grain Neutral Spirits). Every product we release is made from start to finish under our distillery roof, right here in Lower South End, Charlotte. We're hands-on in all steps of the process, from milling and mashing to fermentation and bottling.
Pay us a visit and we’ll take you on a tour of our facility and show you the distillation process & meticulous care that goes into every bottle we produce. You can also browse our merchandise selection & purchase all of your Doc's gear on-site after tasting the "grain-to-glass" difference for yourself.
Our spirits are available for purchase at the distillery (limit 5 bottles per person/per year), ABC stores throughout North Carolina, and South Carolina retailers. Our products can also be purchased online at www.ezras.com.
Remember to #drinkdocs & drink responsibly. Cheers!

A friend and I took a tour of this distillery on a Saturday, it very informative on how they started and how they make their rum, bourbon, vodka and gin. I’ll likely come back to volunteer to bottle..... more »
They have great liquors here. Unique flavors and quite a variety. The tour was just ok because the guide talked extremely fast. You could simply go here just to do a tasting.
Great small craft distillery. They make vodka, gin, rye, and bourbon. My wife and I enjoyed the gin and rye the most and both will be staples at our home bar. Each tasting includes a quick tour of their facility. They also offer an owner tour which is longer and more detailed. I only did the tour with the tasting. Really excited that we have a good quality local distillery in Charlotte that makes classic spirits.
