Gone are the days when a sticky bottle of supermarket-industrial vermouth gathered dust in the back of the cupboard, and the bitters bottle lurked eternally, an ancient thing forgotten in the shadows. A huge, rapidly expanding selection of the fine artisanal bitters has reshaped the world of cocktails. Cardamom, smoke, celery, chocolate, rhubarb, and lavender are but a few. And vermouth, from the gentle caress of Dolin dry to the volcanic passion of L’Afrique, there is no better way to take your drinks to their limits of flavor, aroma, and body then with its mesmerizing flavors.
This tasting and cocktail mixing experience will take in the new vista of artisan-made bitters and vermouths, discuss how they’re made, and train on the ways to use them to their full potential.
