Tasting Sessions – Hudson Bourbon
May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm£10
Join us for an intimate tasting of one of our favourite Bourbons – Hudson Whiskey, with the legendary global Brand Ambassador Tony Vanaria.
Before Prohibition more than 1,000 farm distillers produced alcohol from New York grains and fruits. In 2005, Hudson brought the tradition of small batch spirits production back to the Hudson Valley and were responsible for changing state laws that eventually allowed craft distilleries in New York to begin selling to the public again, directly leading to the craft distilling revolution New York is currently experiencing.
We’ll learn about the rather unexpected and accidental journey founders Ralph Erenzo and Brian Lee took to become one of the most in demand American whiskies in the world and, of course, we will get to taste each of their signature whiskies while we are at it – Hudson Baby Bourbon, Hudson Four Grain and Hudson Manhattan Rye.
Tony will talk us through what makes them so unique and what inspired the founders to make them in the first place… and who knows there might even be a few prizes up for grabs too.
So please, come along for a taste of New York in the heart of Shoreditch.
