Tonight from 5-7pm in the Brooklyn wine store, join us for a spirit tasting of 4 New York state-made spirits all made on a working farm upstate. With the success of Core, a vodka made from apples grown on the same land as the distillery, Golden Harvest farms has branched out to other ap-peeling spirits. With fruit from 2 other farms (Fix Brother’s Farm & Eger Brother’s Orchard), they recently perfected a pear brandy similar to a european eau de vie de poire or “Poire William” and will be bringing samples of their fuji apple brandy and a new applejack distilled in Kentucky at the famous Woodford distillery that’s not even available for sale yet.
Each week during the month of October in Brooklyn, we will be offering different tastes of apple-based spirits and seasonal cocktails. From Calvados to New Jersey’s Applejack brandy to New York’s own Core Vodka (made from, you guessed it, apples), we will have samples of spirits and cocktails to sip and an expert on hand to pass on mixology tips. All tastings are at the Brooklyn wine store at 765 Fulton from 5-7pm unless otherwise noted.
