Manhattan Cocktail Classic, Offsite Event


Recommended Posts

Hi folks. Some of you may be aware of the Manhattan Cocktail Classic, a really exciting event May 14-18.

One of the off site events will be on Sunday May 16th in the latter afternoon (exact time almost decided) at Huckleberry Bar in Brooklyn. This is an awesome bar. Since some of us little people can't really afford to join in the main events (and promote our products at the same time) we have to create off site events. Stephanie Schneider and Andrew Boggs of Huckleberry Bar are hosting one such event. They're providing the bar staff, wait staff, bus staff, etc., food, a band and an intimate, one-of-a-kind setting where you or your rep can meet the end customer be it consumer or bartender and let people know you and your products exist. Here's Stephanie's blurb about the event:

Say goodbye to the maddening pace of Manhattan and join us in the wilds of Brooklyn for DEATH IN THE AFTERNOON… A GARDEN PARTY.

The owners of Huckleberry Bar, Stephanie Schneider (Gramercy Tavern, Blue Smoke, Hearth) and Andrew Boggs (Union Square Café, Blue Smoke), invite you to their first joint venture and Brooklyn’s first heavy weight cocktail bar. Opened in East Williamsburg in October 2007 and awarded Time Out New York’s Best New Bar 2008, Huckleberry Bar is an elegant refuge that gracefully tiptoes the line between the fancy and the fussy.

In homage to DEATH IN THE AFTERNOON, the cocktail that Hemingway created and made famous, we will be showcasing modern, hand-crafted, domestically produced Absinthes, Spirits and Bitters that have recently come to the market: St. George Absinthe, Delaware Phoenix, Death's Door Gin & Whiskey, Germain Robin Absinthe, ABSmeby Bittering Company to name a few. Join us in the beautiful Huckleberry Bar garden for a death in the afternoon cocktail amongst other delightful tipplings and delicious vittles. The sounds of JDT (Jason Domnarski Trio) will intoxicate you further with their decadently antiquated keys, subliminal effects and sharp song craft. Fun stuff for cutting edge tastes!

So join us in the green of the garden for great cocktails and spirits, delicious vittles, great music and people at Brooklyn's Huckleberry Bar! Rain or Shine

I'll be in attendance along with my spirits, and we'd like to see some more artisanal, craft spirits. I'm the only New York distiller there and we want to see more of them. Whether you make whiskey, gin, eau-de-vie. You should at the very least get a couple bottles of your spirits there, and for those that can help sponsor the event and help cover the costs all the better.

If your products aren't available in NY, maybe you should consider supporting this event so people in the know know that you exist.

Any questions, please direct them to Stephanie and she'll fill you in on details. Thanks and I look forward to seeing you there!
