Spirited Seminars: Fords Gin Seminar

Saturday, October 22nd 11AM-1PM

Papilio Park

Join Miles Macquarrie of Kimball House, Neal Bodenheimer of Cure, and Martim Smith-Mattsson of Fords Gin on a journey through the cocktail ages. Gin and cocktails have been close bedfellows throughout history.  From early days of gin punch to the current Golden Age of the Cocktail, the rise and fall of gin and cocktails has been intertwined through time.  Today gin enjoys a relationship with more classic cocktails than any other spirit. Some receiving just a fleeting moment of fame, and others enduring timelessly.  The history of these drinks chats a rich course through the gin years, one which we look forward to sharing with you.
