Gin Bottle

Please join us for a special tasting of the Bristlecone Gin and help support the Salon project at the same time.  We have just received the first bottles of the hand crafted Bristlecone Gin from St George Spirits, and it is incredible.  My favorite quote from an early taster: “It tastes like I’m drinking the mountain.”

If you are looking for a great last minute holiday gift, please consider a couple tickets to what should be a really fun evening.

The evening will consist of a little education about gin, our new space, as well as several unique tastings that include the gin and a tasting of the pure bristlecone distillate itself.  We will also be doing tastings of one of the whiskeys from St George, as well as the Long Now wine. And to cleanse the palate there will be wine, beer, cheese and snacks available all evening.  Each guest will also get to take home a specially etched shotglass to remember the evening.

If you do choose to make a further donation by becoming a member of the bottle club, you can deduct the price of your tasting ticket from the bottle donation.  So if you are considering donating at a higher level, this is a great chance to come check out the gin.

All proceeds from these tastings go directly to the Salon project, so please let your friends know about it.  If there is enough interest we will open up more tasting dates.  The evening runs from 5:30-8:30 on Tuesday January 22nd at Long Now and you are welcome to show up anytime before 8pm as we do the tastings in small groups.  But the earlier you arrive, the longer we have to spend with you, so please come early and hang out!

If you are already a bottle donor, or would like to become one before this event, please contact us at donate@longnow.org and you will not have to purchase tickets.

(Please note this is a 21 and over event)

Thanks!
