Are you a whiskey man? A vodka gal? Or a maybe a rum lover (you know… a pirate)? Whatever your preference, there’s a good chance you have a favorite spirit but you may be intimidated about how to mix up a first-rate cocktail. Well, you’re not alone! Making a cocktail is part knowledge, part art-form, and often part improvisation.

What better way to learn to improve your cocktail game than to go straight to the source? Let the master craftsmen of Distillery Row show you how it’s done! After all, they make the spirits so they know how to best bring out the subtle nuances and bold flavors of their products in both simple and more complex concoctions. Let them help demystify your cocktail!

Join Eastside Distilling, Vinn Distillery, New Deal Distillery, Stone Barn Brandyworks, House Spirits, and Rolling River on Saturday, March 29th for an afternoon of spirits tasting and cocktail instruction.

The event features all six distilleries under one roof with over 25 products including gins, whiskeys, brandies, vodkas, rums, and specialty spirits. Instructional talks throughout the event will cover a wide range of topics from basic mixology to more specialized tips and information—all of which will allow you to take your cocktail-making skills to the next level.

The Cocktail Demystified is designed to get you up and running as a home bartender. You’ll be able to taste new spirits, learn how to use them in cocktails, receive recipes, and even buy the spirits to take home. So fear no more … come learn how to conquer the cocktail!

    There is little not to like about cocktails. I’ve had a few of these producers, but not all of them, and that should be fixed.

    Learning is always a good thing, especially when it’s involved with alcohol, am I right?

    Well, yeah, this would be swell.
