In 2011, after buying 500 square feet of space in an old textile mill , Owners Robbie and Caroline Delaney opened the first rum distillery in North Carolina roughly 50 yards from the “muddy” Catawba River, which gave Muddy River Distillery its name. Soon, by working on the weekends, They were producing 35 bottles of rum a day.
However, by 2013 their little pet project had grown by leaps and bounds. After renovating a previously unusable 6,100-square-foot space in the same mill and designing two new cutting-edge stills called Liberty and Democracy, Muddy River Distillery now has the capacity to deliver 300 bottles a day.
The SHU Band is an audience focused fun rock band that plays a diverse mix of the best Modern Rock, 80's, Pop Rock, & Country hits.
