As spring settles in to the mountains, Half-Mile Farm is thrilled to welcome Ann Marshall and husband Scott Blackwell, founders of the award-winning High Wire Distilling in Charleston. This boutique distillery is dedicated to making premium, handcrafted, small-batch spirits. Their approach is simple: seek the finest ingredients available and develop recipes using a creative, culinary approach. Scott is a CIA-trained baker and applies his knowledge of artisanal grains and culinary techniques to the spirits he creates. Enjoy a sit-down tasting/presentation with Ann and Scott along with the full array of High Wire spirits.
