Local Liquor

A Sub-Studio screen print was one of my first online art purchases and is still one of my favorite art pieces to this day. I don't remember to check out their blog often enough, so when I do I can get lost for hours clicking through links and absorbing all the beauty.

Today's visit led me to King's County Distillery. Their simple-solution for labels is branding at it's best, reminiscent of running moonshine during the prohibition, pared down enough to have a heritage/modern look.

With Homebrew Charlie heading up the WatS household alcohol concoctionary (just beer, no alcohol in our bathtub) he's always looking for labeling solutions and I think King's County is spot on.

For those in NC looking for a few good ways to light a liquid fire in the ol'gullet, we've got Junior Johnson's Midnight Moon Moonshine and Catdaddy Carolina Moonshine. Me, I'm not so keen on drinks that taste and feel like gasoline, but The Last One makes me wish I part of Popcorn Sutton's inner circle. Oh the stories I bet he told. . .

This has me thinking we might need to make a trip up to Carolina Shine Fest this summer to give our bottle of Root a few happy companions.

For some reason, I have a sudden urge to sing "Man of Constant Sorrow" (from O Brother Where Art Thou?) ...
