MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A Kentucky-based moonshine distillery with roots to the prohibition era will soon open in Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing.

According to Colin Fultz, president and owner of Kentucky Mist Moonshine in Whitesburg, Ky., renovations are currently underway at the spots that will house a tasting bar and gift shop.

“I think it will be good for all of us,” Fultz said.

The moonshine distiller said he’s been looking for a way to get his product out beyond Whitesburg. An acquaintance put him in contact with someone at Broadway at the Beach and work began.

 

The family of Colin Fultz distilled corn liquor in the Appalachian Mountains illegally back in the prohibition days, resulting in Fultz’s grandfathers imprisonment for 17 years. Fultz decided he was going turn his family tradition into a legal business in 2015 in Whitesburg, Kentucky. Fultz is now expanding his distillery to Myrtle Beach to Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing. Fultz says what makes Kentucky Mist so unique is that they use a special recipe handed down from his grandfather who was a moonshiner and bootlegger back in the prohibition days.  Fultz and his employees makes everything from scratch with no artificial flavors when infusing the liquor .

Kentucky Mist distills moonshine and vodka. The distillery’s website lists 12 different flavors of moonshine, including caramel apple, apple pie, infused strawberry and lemonade. The distillery at Broadway at the Beach will have two buildings; one side will be the gift shop and bar, the other side will be the actual distillery where people can look through the glass to experience the whole process of making the alcohol to packaging.

Fultz says his goal is to keep the flavors as original as possible, so customers can experience the original moonshine his grandfather made back in the day. Fultz grew up visiting Myrtle Beach and says he chose this area because of its growing tourists.

“I hope to bring more business to Broadway at the beach and then hopefully it will help us. We really don’t care about distributing the product that we make we want to be unique so you only get it when you come to Myrtle beach or one of the other distilleries," said Fultz.

The Kentucky Mist location at Broadway at the Beach will open first in late-March this year. The second location will be in Barefoot Landing, Fultz says that location will open around June.
