Stolzle is always proud to partner with a new customer. But, every once in a while, we have the very pleasurable opportunity to work with people like the team at the just-opened Burnt Church Distillery in Bluffton, South Carolina where it all means so much more.
This team, led by co-founders Billy and Sean Watterson, started with a vision to invest and make apositive difference in their community and to honor the history of the area. And, since construction on the distillery began in May of 2019, it has truly been a labor of love, honoring past and a commitment to celebrating the present in that part of South Carolina’s Low Country.
Fast forward to their recent official opening, attended by over 2000 people and the Governor of South Carolina, along with other local officials.
“We are exporting South Carolina’s culture, flavor and history – one bottle at a time,” Watterson was quoted at the opening of the 25,000 square foot distillery.
It’s that larger vision to tell the story of the region and give back to the community that inspires us at Stolzle and makes us so thrilled to be partnered with the Burnt Church Distillery. With authentic low country spirits bottled with names like Bluffton Whiskey, Anita’s Choice Bourbon, Devil’s Elbow Gin, Sippin’ Saint Moonshine and more, the story of local heritage continues to be reinforced. This in combination with the specific glass for the specific spirit that Stolzle offers makes for a perfect synergy between the two companies. Plus, keeping with our #StolzleForLife mantra - heritage and great storytelling is something that we at Stolzle always love being a part of.
Mark states that when discussing Stolzle’s products with Katherine she was very focused and knew exactly what she wanted for the Distillery.
Matching our passion for producing high quality, high performance glassware, that is then backed up by an equally strong passion for great customer service and communication - all resulting in long-term, lifetime relationships with great individuals and organizations.
For us, that is #StolzleForLife.
So, congratulations to the entire team at Burnt Church Distillery in Bluffton, South Carolina.
All of us here at Stolzle are very proud to be a partner with such a fine group of people.

When we speak about the concept of “Stolzle For Life” it all starts with our guest or the consumer.
Whenever a beverage is enjoyed from a Stolzle glass, we want that beverage, that overall experience, to be truly an enjoyable and memorable experience. Studies have shown that drinking wine in moderation improves the overall quality of life. At Stolzle, we want that life to be the best that it can be. That is the reason that we design performance into every glass we make.
Making high-performance glassware requires both a talented design group and an equally talented manufacturing team for the critical execution of the performance-oriented designs. At Stolzle, we utilize our 130+ years of glassware manufacturing knowledge and experience to make sure that each glass shape delivers on its all of its promises.
A great example is our Experience collection. Originally, the range was designed initially a riesling-specific range with four glasses, covering the variety of tastes of this special type of wine. However, the design and functionality of these glasses proved to be so excellent that many people did not want to waive the overall performance and special experience with other types of wine. Therefore, the originally-named Riesling collection was extended and re-named Experience. Experience is still today the number one choice for Riesling lovers.
While delivering on performance, the machine pulled stem design of Experience both impresses with its elegant, stylish shape and its elevated levels of functionality. Today, our Experience collection has expanded and now includes a full range of stemmed wine glasses and a variety of tumblers to match.
Performance, plus style and functionality – a winning combination that has always been a part of the Stolzle Glassware tradition.
Approachable. Affordable. Available.
