Apr. 12, 2014 | Studio V.S.O.P. | Citadel Gardens | Mpls | Recap
For our first Studio V.S.O.P. event of the year, we focused on Jack Daniel’s single barrel sponsored by Lowry liquor of Uptown.
This event was held in south Minneapolis at the Citadel Gardens, a very beautiful venue with a traditional style and feel. The archtecture dated back to the 1800's. We started the night with a little social hour introducing some very tasteful drinks. As the night went on Dennis Som (founder) introduced the venue, the sponsors, and ask them speak upon their product.
Along with Lowry Hills Liquors' single barrel Jack Daniel’s we had some amazing ice cream from Cranky’s ice cream; the flavor for the night was "whiskey sour" which was a big hit with everyone…. including me. It fit very well along with the whiskey theme. The Jack Daniel’s single barrel was never a drink I was very interested in until this event; tasting it that night placed a bit of character to Jack Daniel’s. The dark rich oaked flavor opened up a palate within me that I have never knew existed.
Overall it was a great night filled with drinks, laughter, alont with Ben Currie (intern) and I giving people a little “trouble” at the gate to bring them in with some laughs. Another successful event that you all need to be sure you make it to the next one where we will be tasting wine.
