Torden Destinations – Georgia

Reminiscent of gentlemanly hospitality and sunny afternoons, Sweet Georgia gives you a strong, pure, ripe peach flavor with distinct floral notes and a clean, refreshing sweetness.

From south of Macon County, Georgia, and north into the Piedmont region, you can find the sweet inspiration for Torden’s Sweet Georgia e-liquid Georgia peaches. This luscious peach flavor delivers a taste of the old South straight from Georgia’s heartland.

Old and new

Established in 1732, Georgia was the last of the original thirteen colonies, and one of the bases of the agricultural South. In addition to cotton, the Georgia region was known to  have cultivated peaches since 1571. To this day, the Peach State, as Georgia is aptly known, produces a prodigious amount of peaches. Now it is one of the best peach producing places in the world.

In 1870, Georgia rejoined the post-Civil War United States. Today the state is booming – Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has earned the title of the world's busiest airport, and many American and international businesses are headquartered in Georgia.

With companies like Coca-Cola, CNN and Delta Airlines headquartered there, It’s no wonder Georgia is known as the Empire State of the South.

Lots to do

There’s more than peaches and big business here. From the Blue Ridge Mountains to the coastal plains, Georgia has a lot to offer.

Atlanta (or “Hotlanta” as some call it!) is the bustling center of Georgia, and has been since before Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone with the Wind”. As the home of Georgia Tech and the CDC, it’s definitely a brainy city. Atlanta’s soul comes through in its great music scene, as the city is an incubator for breakthrough indie and underground hip-hop bands. And you can find the city’s heart at the King Center, a memorial to the civil rights legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.

In Savannah, the genteel South is around every corner. Take a walk down to the city’s Historic District, through beautiful old homes and historical buildings. Markers at each destination explain the age and history of each building, and its place in the community. You can even explore the District with a horse and buggy ride.

If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, look no further than TWD tours. You can walk from Woodbury to Alexandria from Seasons 3 - 5 of the show along just two miles of road. Plus, filming is still going on, so you may walk past vans carrying stars from set to base camp. You never know who you might get to see or even meet. Even further out from Georgia’s urban landscapes, there are activities for just about everyone. From Cloud Canyon State Park, to Rock Ranch, to Wolf Island Wildlife Refuge, finding outdoor adventures has never been easier.

Georgia's culinary landscape ranges from soul food and barbecue to fine dining. And besides sweet peaches, nothing says “Georgia” like shrimp and grits. The annual Jekyll Island Shrimp & Grits Festival is a characteristically Southern tradition that celebrates this beloved dish. From the Northeast Georgia Mountains to the Magnolia Midlands, chefs from restaurants all across the state come to compete for the honor of winning.

Georgia has a lot going on for the Torden man. The beautiful outdoors, bustling Atlanta, and food that makes a trip truly worthwhile every experience is sure to be sweet, just like our Sweet Georgia e-liquid from Torden.
