The SC Dispensary System was instituted by Governor Ben Tillman, at the behest of the temperance movement. This allowed the state to exert monopolistic control of liquor production and sales. All independent saloons and liquor stores were shuttered, under this system alcohol was bought wholesale and married into state sanctioned bottles, whiskey was whiskey no brands to chose from. Though run for a short time, the dispensary system had an outsized effect on liquor laws in South Carolina.
Side note the Palm emblem was only used from 1893 to 1900 as the temperance movement did not like how closely it resembled the state flag.
