At Muddy River Distillery, we make the best rum you've ever tasted by using premium ingredients, handcrafted recipes, and custom-built stills.
GLUTEN FREE!! All our rums are gluten free. We use sugar cane molasses and sugar. Queen Charlotte's Reserve is aged in new American white oak barrels so there is not contamination from previous spirits in the barrel.
Silver Carolina Rum
Muddy River's first product Carolina Rum launched in September 2012. Our small batch rum is produced in a one of a kind still specifically designed and built by the company’s founder and head distiller to produce a premium quality rum with a distinctive, smooth taste. No color, flavor, or sugar is added. This rum has won awards including the Big Sip Cup. Check out the link below for recipes.

Queen Charlotte's Reserve
Queen Charlotte's Reserve is barrel aged one year in virgin American white oak barrels. Resting in these barrels leaves it with a smooth, oaky finish. No color, flavor, or sugar is added to this product, it is simply barrel aged for color. A surprisingly well balanced rum that's a pleasure to sip. We hope that you enjoy our American made rum as much as we do.

Coconut Carolina Rum
After many rounds of trial and tasting, our Coconut Carolina Rum recipe was perfected. Coconut Carolina Rum is smooth and lightly sweetened with the taste of fresh coconut. Coconut Carolina Rum was launched in North Carolina ABC stores in June 2015 and was a hit for its first summer season.
Coconut Carolina Rum cocktails coming soon.
Spiced Carolina Rum
Our smooth Spiced Carolina Rum is delicious straight or mixed to create your favorite cocktails. Created from a unique blend of spices and a hint of vanilla and cinnamon, our newest product is a beautiful amber colored rum. After 2 years of recipe development, we released our true labor of love. Cheers!

Basil Carolina Rum
Inspired by our head distiller's favorite cocktail, Basil Carolina Rum is a proud addition to the Muddy River fleet. The Sweet Basil is sourced from local farms and infused into our Carolina Rum. This garden to glass rum starts on the farm and ends in your glass. Truely inspired spirits. For the perfect refreshing cocktail muddle 1 slice of lemon in a highball glass. Add 2 oz Basil Carolina Rum. Add ice and top off with club soda. Stir and garnish with lemon. Cheers!
