You guys know I'm a big Seasons 52 fan. They are having a super cool Kansas City Distillers Series that you don't want to miss!
Getting back to its pre-Prohibition roots, some of Kansas City’s most beloved local distillers are coming to Seasons 52. The fresh grill and wine bar will host a series of exclusive spirits tastings kicking off on Thursday, September 8 with Weston-based Holladay Distillery, followed by Kansas City’s J. Rieger & Co. Distillery on September 15 and SD Strong Distilling on Thursday, September 22.
Guests will enjoy small plates while they taste and experience a range of premium, artisanal spirits from the featured distiller each week. The distillers themselves will be onsite to lead each tasting, giving attendees the rare opportunity to hear directly from the experts about the craftsmanship and history behind each signature batch they taste.
I'll be attending the September 22 event - come join me! If you're not in Kansas City, follow me on Instagram to see what it's all about!
This is a great opportunity to meet the local distillers but if you can't make it, Kansas Citians can experience selections from local distilleries at Seasons 52 all year long. #yes
Tastings will take place in the bar at Seasons 52 at Country Club Plaza, at 340 Ward Pkwy.
