Join us to celebrate the passage of the Twenty-first Amendment to the United States Constitution on December 5, 1933 as we do a “Around the World in a Day” tasting – and there is no better way to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition in the United States than with an international whiskey tasting led by our friend Ethan Kelley of the Spirits Network, the world's first shoppable entertainment channel where you can watch, taste and buy the world’s best spirits. This memorable event will start off with a custom Bar Sopra cocktail as well as a charcuterie and cheese assortment.
