Mixology 101 – How to understand and love Gin

February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Gin Deep Dive: a thorough examination of the category through the centuries with no gins left unturned – brought to you by Fords Gin
90 minutes
Join Joseph Brooke, your friendly neighborhood ginthusiast (and Fords Gin west coast brand advocate!) for a comprehensive and entertaining dive into the history, methodology and modern appreciation of gin and cocktails. The goal of this seminar is to not only trace the origins and stories that brought gin to prominence throughout the years, but to also demystify an often-maligned spirit category and come to know its many applications within the cocktail world. We will be tasting three gins, along with ours, and we hope you’ll come away from it understanding why we’re known as The Cocktail Gin- come thirsty and curious!
Joe Brooke, wearing an eye patch and a green t-shirt, is pouring gin from a mixing glass and missing the martini glass that's on the table. A bottle of Ford's Gin is prominently displayed.
Mixology 101 – The Gin Deep Dive Monday, 2/26, 7-9PM
