1. Experience a Tasting at Hilton Head Distillery

Recently opened, Hilton Head Distillery combines old school, hand-crafted, small batch techniques with modern technology. They offer white, dark, and spiced rum, along with a smooth vodka. Definitely worth a visit, especially when bad weather nixes a day at the beach.
