The Southern Star Distillery is located in Statesville, North Carolina. In November of 2019, I visited the distillery with Ken Bernardo. The owners, Pete and Vienna Barger, gave us a personal tour and tasting. I had a chance to taste their new make and several of their other products. What impressed me the most was their wheat recipe Bourbon, that was only about two years old at the time. I have been looking forward to seeing it in the bottle, so when I saw a bottle at Westport Whiskey & Wine, I bought it. I am glad I did. It is excellent Bourbon. Matt and I sat down and tasted it and here are our tasting notes.
