BEGIN OUT PROFESSIONALS’ PRIVATE TOUR OF WILLIAMSBURG’S ACCLAIMED NEW YORK DISTILLING COMPANY AT NYDC’S HAPPENING BAR, THE SHANTY.
On Tuesday, September 16, you are invited to join Members and friends of Out Professionals for a private, owner-led tour and tasting at one of the nation’s premier craft distilleries. Founded in 2009, Williamsburg’s New York Distilling Company is seen at the forefront of the state’s rapidly expanding craft spirit industry.
Our host, co-founder and Master Distiller Bill Potter, greets us next door at The Shanty, “one of the five best cocktail bars in Williamsburg” (CBS New York). A member of the American Sommelier Association, Bill earned his Spirits Specialist Certification from the Society of Wine Educators. He’ll brief his fellow Out Professionals members on Williamsburg’s rich pre-Prohibition history.
During Bill’s tour, you are invited to evaluate the unique flavors of three award-winning artisanal gins, each distilled onsite from distinctive New York State ingredients. Before or after your tour, enjoy a complimentary artisanal cocktail at The Shanty, “your new favorite bar” (New York Magazine).
