Catoctin Creek is pleased to present, our FOURTH year of this five-part educational series on the art of the cocktail. This year, we have all new content exploring various flavors from around the world.
Starting in January, Scott Harris, founder and distiller at Catoctin Creek, will appear in the tasting room every Friday for this five-week series. Beginning at 7pm, Scott will personally guide you through the construction of several cocktails, including the old classics, and modern takes on the cocktail! There will be samples for sharing, and you are encouraged to buy bottles to take home with you and practice. Lots of practice.
Here is the schedule of the series:
- January 4 - Italy - vermouth, amari, digestivs, noccino, 'cellos.
- January 11 - Iberia - flavors of Spain and Portugal, sherry, brandy, port, and saffron.
- January 25 - France - vermouth, Amer Picon, brandy, many liqueurs and more.
- February 1 - USA - whiskey, Martinez, Sazerac, Old Fashioned, and punch.
- February 8 - Latin America - molasses, limes, agave, cacao, chiles, hibiscus, and coffee.
NOTICE ON SNOW DAYS: If we have to cancel a class because of weather, we will reschedule the date to February 22, March 1, etc. Your reservation will be honored for the snow date, or you may get a refund if you are unable to make the new date.
If you don't know anything about cocktails, you'll love this class. If you're already an expert, come and enjoy some casual conversation and a few drinks. The cost is $35 per person and includes drinks. Sign up for all six and receive two FREE Catoctin Creek rocks glasses and a FREE copy of The Architecture of the Cocktail.
