Charleston's distillery scene continues to grow, and High Wire leads the pack as the first distillery to open here since Prohibition. Husband-and-wife team Scott Blackwell and Ann Marshall are genuinely enthusiastic foodies with long ties to the Southern Foodways Alliance (and Scott has a killer folk art collection to boot), but aside from being beloved culinary darlings and affable folks, their product is just plain good. Thursday through Saturday afternoons, visitors can arrange tours of the artisan craft distillery followed by sips in the bottle-studded tasting room of High Wire's small batch gins, vodka, and whiskeys, all of which are available for purchase and make great gifts.
