Join us for “Madeira to Moonshine: A Drink History” on Friday, October 7th from 6:00pm-9:00pm. Enjoy a tour of historic Charleston sites and cocktails inspired by historic recipes!
Guests will begin their adventure in the historic Fireproof Building (100 Meeting Street) with Dorothy Heyward’s Champagne Punch, hors d’oeuvres and a brief “drink history” of Mrs. Heyward’s favorite cocktails from the Charleston Renaissance era by historian Harlan Greene. The next stop will be the Blind Tiger Pub where guests will enjoy drinks devoted to Charleston’s rumrunning and moonshine history. The last site of the evening is the Edmondston-Alston House at 21 E. Battery, overlooking the Charleston harbor, where we’ll end the evening with a tasting of madeira and dessert.
Tickets include drinks (specific specialty cocktails, wine, or madeira), heavy hors d’oeuvres, and admission to each location. Guests will be walking to each location. This event takes place rain or shine. No refunds on this event. Participants must be at least 21 years old. ID required.
