About Backstage Southern Cinnapepper Whiskey
Darius Rucker gained fame as the frontman of the rock band Hootie & the Blowfish during the 80s and 90s. He then launched his solo career as a country artist, garnering numerous awards over the past 2 decades ― including 3 Grammy awards. It was during his time on the road that a tradition with the band formed. Before each show, the members, crew, and friends would toast to the music and camaraderie. "That toast is a vital part of our nightly routine. It’s really about celebrating the opportunity to make music together. And Backstage Southern Whiskey is now a part of that important ritual that we can share with fans," says Rucker. What started as a pre-show ritual led to the creation of 843 Whiskey LLC and the Backstage Southern Whiskey brand.
A threesome of whiskeys is now gathered under the Backstage banner: the Backstage Southern Rye Whiskey, the Backstage Cinnapepper Whiskey, and the Backstage Peach Mint Whiskey. Developer with 843 Whiskey partners, the whiskey is crafted at the Palmetto Distillery, a micro distillery from South Carolina. Built on a rich tradition of moonshiners, the distillery makes craft spirits using recipes handed down from generation to generation on a copper still. Backstage Southern Cinnapepper Whiskey is a flavored expression that is crafted with Backstage Southern Whiskey, cane sugar, spices, and red pepper. Bottled at 70 proof, its profile is sweet and spicy. It has won a Bronze Medal at the 2018 edition of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
