Charleston Mixology Walking Tour: History and Cocktails
From $40.00
Overview
Experience the spirited side of Charleston with a 1.5-hour mixology tour that explores the city’s craft bars, history and cocktail culture. Visit a series of three neighborhood bars with your local guide, and enjoy a signature cocktail prepared for the group at each stop. Learn the process behind the drink recipes and hear stories about Charleston’s moonshining past. Explore the revival of South Carolina’s 'farm-to-tumbler' distilling culture while kicking off your evening in Charleston with a small group of cocktail lovers.
What to Expect
Each Mixology Tour will visit 3 bars. At each bar the group will meet the bartender where he/she will describe the drink being prepared that evening and will typically make the drinks in front of the group. During each 30 minute stop, the group will then have an opportunity to ask questions of the bartender and, of course, enjoy their cocktail. In between stops your guide will share stories about Charleston's past and the food and beverage scene today.

Cheers !!! Designer Cocktails and History

Charley, our guide was very good. She combined history and personal stories for an entertaining tour. The drinks were different than anything we would normally drink. We met some nice people, too. And there is not too much walking involved. Cheers!

Mixology Mixup

I've been on many food/drink tours across the world. It's really one of my favorite ways to see the city. Unfortunately, this tour, run by Dustin left a lot to be desired. My group of 11 friends spent the evening debating what types of drugs...More

We are pleased that you enjoyed the cocktails and mixologists on your tour Kaitlin. However, we are sorry to hear that this was not a 5-Star experience, with a private debate commanding most of the tour's attention. Most concerning of course is the indication that...More
