[ PART TWO OF TARA’S SPIRIT TASTING SERIES ]
Spirit Works Distillery
Timo + Ashby Marshall
Saturday, April 19th, 3:30-4:30
Since Spirit Works hit the scene, their Vodka, Gin + Sloe Gin have won the hearts of many. In fact, these spirits are so beloved - they have a group of local volunteers hand-zesting citrus for their batches! Why do we love 'em? Spirit Works Distillery’s ‘grain to glass’ concept pairs perfectly with Spoonbar’s ‘farm to bar’ mixology! These artisans are even milling whole grains and hand bottling product. So, join us and this distilling duo in learning + tasting some of Sonoma County’s finest spirits.
[ PART THREE OF TARA’S SPIRIT TASTING SERIES ]
Campo De Encanto Pisco
Sunday, May 18th, 3:30-4:30
Even for those who don’t know what Pisco is, the people have spoken and they want more! This spirit is made from grapes, making it the perfect cocktail component in wine country. Fittingly translated to ‘ Field of Enchantment’, Encanto brings together a trifecta of masterminds. A Distiller (Carlos Romero), a Sommelier (Walter Moore), and a Bartender (Duggan McDonnell) are San Franciscans that have crafted a spirit that has been awarded this year’s ‘World’s Best Pisco’. It’s a Pisco blended for Bartenders by Bartenders - an essential in the Spoonbar inventory. Learn more about this versatile spirit and indulge in an Encanto Pisco tasting!
