The Serious Rums of Hacienda Santa Teresa

6:00pm to 8:00pm
Aged in American white oak and French Límousin oak, the rums of Hacienda Santa Teresa are serious spirits. Some of these rums--like the Solera cuvée--have been aged for over 25 years prior to release. For your drinking enjoyment, we'll be opening the entry-level Añejo Gran Reserva (aged two years), as well as the top-level cuvée, the 1796 Solera. These are show-stoppers that might make you wonder why you haven't spent more time sipping rum neat, rather than using it solely in mixed cocktails for all these years.

Cool As A Cucumber: Hendrick's Gin

5:00pm to 8:00pm
For a widely known gin, Hendrick's is, in essence, still a small-production product, limiting the batches for greater quality control. This gin is best known, however, for its intense aromatics, which include rose petals and cucumbers. The resulting gin is refreshing and clean and makes for a complex, delicate, and lovely martini. This gin is one-of-a-kind and worth a taste--or two.

Featuring:

Hendrick's Gin - (LTR)
