Rieger Spirits Hands On Cocktail Class!

This will be fun class to attend, so we hope that you can make it out on Friday, June 7th from 6-8 p.m. as we welcome back Rieger Spirits Ambassador (and local bartender) Nicole Gilbert as she performs a hands on cocktail class!

It has been awhile since we did one of these, and we can think no one better for an event of this caliber than Nicole. She will be demonstrating how to craft several different cockatils using the Rieger line of spirits, and while she is teaching, YOU the customer will actually be crafting the cocktails with her step by step. Customers will be divided into groups of 2 for this class to make ingredients stretch.

Most of us are hands on learners anyway, so why not learn how to expertly make a cocktail and become the person everyone wants at their next dinner party?

Tickets are $15 plus fees per person, but everyone attending will receive a $5 credit towards featured products of the event. Light snacks and water will be provided. Click here for tickets.

This class would make a great date night, a fun early Father’s Day gift or just a good old night out. We will see you on 6/7!

Crown Royal Ambassador on 4/18!

Come join us for an intimate tasting featuring Crown Royal Brand Ambassador Stephen Wilson on Thursday, April 18th from 6:00-7:00 p.m. This tasting will feature three of Crown Royal’s finest Whiskys: Northern Rye, (former #1 Whisky of the Year) Special Reserve and XR.

We will see you on 4/18!

Per Stephen’s Bio:

“Good people, good conversation and great whisky.” For Stephen, that’s what it’s all about. As Crown Royal’s Director of Whisky Engagement, he’s able to combine all of those things and more. He has had the pleasure of representing the Diageo whiskies for over twelve years and his diverse background, coupled with his love for whisky, allows him to bring a one of a kind approach to his work.

Stephen thrives on sharing his knowledge and enjoyment of whisky with everyone from the connoisseur to the novice-adult experiencing whisky for the first time. His work has taken him throughout the world and includes: PR/media events, private events, seminars, whisky festivals and education courses. From 2006 – 2015, he was the host of the Johnnie Walker Journey and House of Walker, a multi-sensory, one of kind tasting experience.

Having completed in-depth industry training across Canada, Scotland, Ireland, Kentucky and Tennessee, Stephen is well versed in whisky history, production processes, wood/barrel management, sensory evaluation and maturation. He has also had the privilege of studying alongside a wide variety of whisky experts at some of the world’s most renowned distilleries, including the Crown Royal Masters Blenders at LaSalle and the Johnnie Walker Master Blenders at Cardhu.

Originally from the heart of American whiskey and Bourbon country, Stephen has called New York City home for the past nineteen years. When he’s not enjoying whisky, Stephen is an avid distance runner who competes regularly, always pushing himself towards a new personal best.
