This year's PASSPORT program runs from Friday 12-21-18 6:30 PM through Sunday 01-27-19 11:59 PM.

$800/passport. Choose 12 ounces from 35 bottles. Out of 12 pours, one must be non-whisk(e)y. Our hours of operations are your windows for indulgence. Please note that we are closed January 1st, 2019.  You can share your Passport(s) with as many (close) friends as you want.

Join us for a "Kick-off“cocktail reception before the official start on Friday, December 21, 2018 between 5:30 and 6:30 PM. We'll have a guest distiller as well as two mystery pours of something worthy to be on the list. Flavien will give a brief address as he reflects on 2018 and some house-favorite culinary bites will make their way around the room.The gift bag this year will feature 1 Spirit School Seminar gift certificate, a spirited decanter, a box of Brooklyn Born chocolates, and a Ravenscroft tasting glass. We'll even provide a mini (or two) to fill said tasting glass. We can’t think of a better way to kickoff the New Year than a little pre-holiday cheer. We look forward to seeing you as we kick off the 2018/19 PASSPORT TO GREAT SPIRITS.
