A favorite of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Humphrey Bogart, gin has had a storied place in history. The colorless liquor, infused with botanicals such as juniper, was an underground favorite during the Prohibition Era. Now that gin can be made outside of a bathtub, the modern gin movement finds an array of producers showcasing the versatility and subtlety of flavor of this spirit. Please join us to experience a gin tasting at Atria restaurant, the new modern European restaurant in midtown Manhattan. We’ll learn about the history, flavor profiles and sample a variety of cocktails made with gin.
