Cathead Distillery

Madison, MS
The King and the Cat cocktail feature King’s Ginger Liqueur from Cathead Distillery.

Harold Daniels

Founded in 2010, Cathead was the first legal distillery in Mississippi (the last state to repeal Prohibition). Owners Austin Evans and Richard Patrick distill Cathead Vodka six times and mix sweet grain corn into each batch. In addition to the original vodka, Cathead produces a white barley whiskey, a chicory liqueur, and several flavored vodkas, including pecan and pumpkin spice. Their passion for spirits is blended with a love for Mississippi roots music. Through partnerships with local foundations, Cathead supports live performances and local musicians.
