Vodkafest with Gin on Monday Night
Sorry for the late notice, but if you're going to be in the New York area on Monday we highly recommend checking out the Polished Palate's Vodkafest with Gin. It's Monday October 23 at Manhattan's Valbella, and will feature a bunch of smaller vodka and gin distillers and distributors, as well as the typical 800 pound gorillas of the industry.
Our good friend Dave Schmier from Orange V vodka (see our Orange V review) will be pouring, and while they're apparently only allowed to pour 1/4 ounce shots for tasting, there are a lot of vendors there (wink wink). See below for the libations available, directly from the Polished Palate site:
We're shakin' and stirrin' at our VodkaFest-featuring Gin. Taste Vodkas from Sweden, Poland, Holland, Ireland, Finland, Switzerland, the USA & France. Vodkas made from corn, rye, wheat (one made from only 5 varieties of wheat)...some from fruit orchards like wild berries, ruby red grapefruit, banana, clementine, mango...some from your garden (cilantro, dill, rosemary & fennel) and more.
We keep meaning to make it down to NYC for these events and the PP's Rumfest but we haven't been able to get there yet. Please make up for our lameness - tickets are $40 in advance or $50 at the door and doors are at 6:30 - or if you want an extra hour of face time, do the VIP ticket for $60 and start the drinking at 5:30. For more Vodkafest information, head on over to the Polished Palate site.
