I recently had the chance to preview Columbia’s newest spirits store, Bottles and am way too excited to go spend more money than I need to there.

The very first thing I was shown there was shelves and shelves and shelves of ginger beer of all kinds. Seriously, the shelf space for it was wide than I can reach. Moscow mule tasting party, anyone?

The space is huge, and there are all sorts of special items- from blackberry ginger Canada Dry to a slew of unusual bitters. Options ranged from imported Belgian ales to locally crafted Copper Horse products, made here in Columbia on Huger Street with grain from Allen Brothers Milling (aka Adluh).

The first day open is today, Wednesday, December 16. Hope you don’t spend all your Christmas money in one place. Bottles is located at 4410 Fort Jackson Boulevard, Columbia.
