About the Menhaden Whisky Society

The Menhaden Whisky Society is a nod towards Beaufort’s heritage and rich fishing industry. Menhaden was the fish that built Beaufort.

Menhaden companies in Beaufort provided generations of workers with a dependable livelihood. Menhaden became synonymous with Beaufort.

Menhaden were caught in massive nets and then brought to Beaufort for processing.

The Beaufort Hotel sits on the site of the last remaining Menhaden plant in North Carolina.
