Historic Columbia's Behind the Scenes Tour

  • Copper Horse Distilling 929 Huger St Columbia, SC, 29201 United States (map)

Behind-the-Scenes Tour | Vista Warehouse District

Tickets for this event are available to members only until April 20th.

January’s Behind-the-Scenes Tour begins with a visit to Copper Horse Distilling to explore a micro-distillery located in one of Columbia’s historic warehouses located in the riverside Vista District. Learn about the history of the warehouse district and what goes into crafting Columbia’s artisanal distilled spirits made exclusively from local grains milled at the historic Allen Brothers mill home of Adluh Flour, complete with a tasting.

Interested in the small house movement?  Come see one of Columbia’s finest examples of the trend in living with less and reducing environmental impact. With the exception of its metal exterior and no detail overlooked, this house has almost been completely hand-crafted from local artisan Clark Ellefson.  He has now turned his talents to creating handmade post-modernist lamps, robots, and other hand-crafted items.  This tour also gains you entry into the Lewis+Clark one-of-a kind studio that sits adjacent to his home.

Learn about future plans for the Warehouse District to create an innovative, permanent arts district within the urban environment located between Copper Horse Distilling and Lewis+Clark. The first phase of construction at Storm Water Studios will be a 5,000 square foot work studio to accommodate sculpture, clay, painting, wood, or other disciplines requiring larger space.  

Beverages and light refreshments provided. Please note that portions of this tour are not handicapped accessible. Guests must be 21 years of age or older.
