Southern Star, the line of bourbons and rye whiskeys from North Carolina-based Southern Distilling Company, announced the release of a special edition Southern Star Double Shot Bourbon Cream Liqueur bottle in partnership with Charlotte Football Club. 

Donning the Charlotte FC’s iconic black and blue team colors, the limited-edition collector’s bottle, inspired by the Club’s new “Carolina Kit: Explore”, will be available for purchase exclusively at Southern Distilling Company’s Statesville Tasting Room beginning March 29 while supplies last.

Beginning April 13, the special edition bottle, which also features artwork showcasing the diverse landscape of the Carolinas, will be available in North Carolina ABC liquor stores and select South Carolina retailers.

“As the official craft bourbon of Charlotte FC, we are proud to be able to expand our current partnership through this collaboration,” Pete Barger, co-founder and CEO of Southern Distilling Company, said in a news release. “Being a North Carolina native, I am excited to cheer on our Queen City team while sipping on a Double Shot cocktail.”

Fans attending Charlotte FC matches can also enjoy Southern Star Double Shot bourbon cream liquor at several locations throughout the stadium. Please visit for recipes and additional information about the bottle.  

“We’re delighted to partner with Southern Distilling Company to bring this specially crafted product to the marketplace in a beautifully designed bottle inspired by our Carolina Kit: Explore,” Charlotte FC President Joe LaBue said. “Expanding our brand throughout the Carolinas is a strategic priority around the new primary kit, and this collaboration presented a unique way to amplify a great partnership with a strong local brand.”

Southern Star Double Shot is a blend of rich cream and sweet whiskey, with a hint of espresso-roast coffee. The creamy bourbon liqueur’s profile makes it a versatile option at any gathering or for an evening watching the match at home. Double Shot can be enjoyed chilled, over ice, mixed in a cocktail, stirred into coffee, and even poured over ice cream. Bourbon fans and those who are bourbon-curious can treat themselves to this sweet sip on and off the pitch. 

The 30 proof bourbon cream has an SRP of $27.95. For more information, visit
