The Striped Pig Distillery's aptly named mascot, Jackson — the Striped Pig — was unable to attend the popular King Street Second Sunday event in Charleston this month due to requests from Second Sunday organizers. According to Jim Craig, Jackson's caretaker and an owner of the Striped Pig Distillery, the news came out of nowhere.
"We were all rather shocked… He never caused any harm and although he’s a hefty guy, there are many dogs that frequent King Street that are much more intimidating," he says via press release.
According to a Facebook comment from Jackson himself, he was banned for creating "a bottleneck in pedestrian traffic" — a byproduct of his size and slow speed.
It appears Jackson has accrued a bit of a following as his dedicated Facebook page has around 600 likes. The Charleston City Paper named Jackson the "best liquor branding" earlier this month.
