Bourbon Behind Bars

Local distillery provides great tasting bourbon and an experience you won't forget.

A distillery in Cabarrus County lives inside a former prison, built back in 1927. It operated as an all-male prison until 2011. The folks at Southern Grace Distilleries tell us they get 500 to 600 tourists each month. They offer different kinds of tours, including a Whiskey Prison After Dark Tour happening in late November. We went there to see how their liquor is made and found out it may contain more than award-winning bourbon.
