Our Story

We Serve Elevated Flavors

The Sweetgrass Lounge opened its doors in downtown Charleston within The Refinery as the official flagship of Sweet Grass Vodka in November 2022. An elevated, coastal-decadent tasting room, The Sweetgrass Lounge is also the home of Sweet Grass Vodka’s bottling facility. 
In addition to the tasting room, The Sweetgrass Lounge hosts cocktail classes, events and private rentals. With elements of rich wood, copper, and leather, our lounge is the perfect, picturesque space for any occasion. 
Sweet Grass Vodka was awarded three Global Masters Awards for Smoothest, Organic, and Micro-Distillery, in addition to being awarded a gold medal as the Best Domestic Vodka of 2022 by The Fifty Best.
Founded in Charleston, SC, Sweet Grass Vodka consists of three simple ingredients: potatoes, water and yeast. Each bottle of Sweet Grass Vodka contains a single strand of sweetgrass: purchased from the local Gullah Geechee artisans in the Charleston City Market in bushels, cut to size, washed and sanitized, dried and bottled by hand.
“There’s a piece of Charleston in every bottle.”
