Startup Grind Charleston Hosts Scott Blackwell (Founder of High Wire Distilling)

A “serial entrepreneur” since the age of 10, Scott Blackwell has built his success one innovative culinary venture at a time. From pie maker, restaurateur, and coffee roaster to, most recently, commercial baker, Scott is passionate about blending culinary creativity with high quality, artisanal ingredients. The sale of his most recent venture, Immaculate Baking Company, to General Mills inspired him to return to small batch, artisan made products in the form of High Wire Distilling Co, a two time James Beard Semi Finalist and downtown Charleston’s first operating distillery since Prohibition.
