"A glass of absinthe is as poetical as anything in the world.
What difference is there between a glass of absinthe and a sunset."

Indie Spirits Chicago

Indie Spirits Chicago, @thehilton , built in 1927,  became The Conrad Hilton’s 1945 Great event. Interesting industry Q&A with strong local panel, key trends from sparks of non alcoholic distilled spirit being used to soften others spirits/drinks to White Craw Saltzer, (basically Seltzer Water, gluten free alcohol and fruit flavour) storming the market from mainstream


Le Piano, Delilahs and Binny’s in Chicago

Regardless of all the political turmoil & deadlock imploding back at home, the daily reality for me is meetings, work, and evolving business with others, from importers, distributors, on & off-trade & consumers, be it at home or abroad. Fun was had yesterday covering all these bases, from the cool live Jazz Bar Le Piano


The Northcott Liquorette Speakeasy

George hosting an Absinthe Masterclass at the very cool speakeasy: The Northcott Liquorette.  Modeled after the speakeasys of the Prohibition era. The Northcott Liquorette features absinthe fountains, liquor-infused teapot kettles, & rare whiskey acquisitions in a private, cocktail lounge setting. Consume without abandon & you too might find yourself hiding from the law.
