Second City Distilling Company Opens Downtown

April 8, 2019|

Second City Distilling Company, downtown Augusta’s first small-batch distillery, opened on Monday.

Second City, the second venture of the owners of distillery Carolina Moon in Edgefield, SC, is located at 4 Eighth St, which used to house Cafe 209.

The 6,000-square-foot building next to the Riverwalk houses Second City’s entire distilling operation, including a tasting room, retail space, mash room, distillation room and bottling room. According to the co-owner David Long, the distillery will have a wider variety of products than Carolina Moon, distilling whiskey, rum, vodka and gin along with moonshine.

The distillery also has a small bar, and visitors will be able to enjoy cocktails and flights.

Long said in an interview last year that Second City will be similar to Carolina Moon but “with a little bit of polish on it.”
