Spirits Tasting: Opici
featuring Michael Beckner
Thursday, June 23, 2016 / 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Michael Beckner from the Opici Wine Group will be at the bar this Thursday pouring a pair of delicious spirits (and there's a chance a third fun bottle will make an appearance as well). These are great bottles to mix into summer cocktails or to enjoy on their own, so stop in for a taste! This tasting is free.
The Baltimore Whiskey Company, Shot Tower Gin: The Baltimore Whiskey Company is Charm City's newest (only?) craft distillery. Founded in 2015 by three Baltimore natives, they are committed to producing high-quality spirits from locally-sourced grain and other ingredients. The Shot Tower Gin is deliciously different; not piney like a London Dry gin, it is floral and sweet, with jasmine on the nose and citrus on the palate. Strong enough to hold its own in cocktails, this gin is also lovely on its own.
Bruxo Mezcal Artesanal No. 1 Espadín: Bruxo Mezcal is a delicious introduction to the world of mezcal. Made from agave sourced from small family farmers, the fruit and floral aromas of the spirit are enhanced by a noticeable smokiness. Rich and textured, the nose is floral, with a peppery citrus palate and a lingering sweet/spicy finish.
