The History of Loaded Cannon

The “Golden Age of Piracy” was between 1650 and 1720 and thousands of pirates roamed the seas. Join the crew of the majestic ship and craft distillery “Loaded Cannon” and journey back in time and learn some of the forgotten stories worthy of being retold. We are an award winning distillery with a broad selection of spirits including whiskey, bourbon, vodkas, rums, gins and flavored varieties.  We never forget, the “best” product is what the customer wants, how they want it and who they want to drink it with!  .

“Our spirits are not just hand crafted, they’re “Copper Kissed”, distilled in copper equipment.

Well, just what is a “Loaded Cannon”, other than the obvious answer?  Well, in our case, the Loaded Cannon is a fictitious pirate ship of epic size, unmatched fortifications and a well-disciplined crew.  They carry a cargo of more value than gold – Loaded Cannon Spirits!  The distillery is named after the ship, and our theme true to the golden age of pirates!  Our large, all copper still, is named Anney and her smaller sister test still is Mary.  Named after the notorious female pirates Ann Bonney and Mary Read.  Anney’s skills and bold flair are highlighted in our Vodka – Anney’s Blade.  Our gin column’s name is  – Ginny Ginny 8675309, Rum/whiskey – Romeo, Vodka – Juliet!  Juliet is 16 stages high.
