A Scotch Whisky Deep Dive

What is the big deal with chill filtering? We will answer these questions, among others, armed with some stunning examples of Scotch, hand-picked from The Hawthornes' coffers.

Shrubs, Syrups, and Infusions
The art of infusion, whether in hard liquor or in a multitude of types of syrups, is a mainstay in bars around the world to layer deeper and more complex flavors in mixed drinks. Shrubs in particular have a special place in the history of New England drinking as a vehicle to preserve the brightest and best flavors of the warmer months even in the most bitter of winters.
In this hands-on seminar, bartenders Colleen Edwards and Amanda Saladino will discuss and comparatively taste a variety of commercially-available shrubs and syrups, as well as lead a hands-on workshop where you will put together your own custom shrub to take home and enjoy, either by itself or mixed into an evocative cocktail.
Ticketing information coming soon.
