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.
At last night’s New York State Wine and Grape Foundation ceremony, we were surprised and thrilled to win “Wine and Spirits Retailer of the Year”! We’re blushing . . . and pretty excited to get an award just for encouraging people to try good wines.
You can come try some great NY State wines and spirits on April 18, Earth Day Weekend as we “Think Global and Drink Local.” We’ll open past selections from our New York Cork Club, a monthly wine club featuring the selections of NY wine guru Lenn Thompson. We’ll also welcome Alie, the founder of Brooklyn Oenology, who will pour her Brooklyn Social Club White 2007 and have the folks down from Core Vodka, an upstate distiller making vodka from apples, to shake a few cocktails for you to try!
