A Spirited Lunar New Year with Nikka & Kavalan Distilleries

LunarNewYear

It’s almost too easy to point out how much 2017 lived up to its Chinese zodiac designation as the Year of the…er, Rooster. As we bid the year’s Cocks a less-than-fond farewell, we have something to look forward to. 2018 ushers in the Year of the Dog, and what better antidote is there than being welcomed into the new year by a bunch of lovable, furry puppies?

Harlem Whiskey Renaissance 2017

In the final days of the 1910s, Harlem experienced a cultural, artistic, and intellectual re-awakening that became known as the Harlem Renaissance was born. The neighborhood became the destination for New Yorkers. The city’s best musicians, best new artists, best new writers, were being forged in that cauldron, all set to the sound of a new piano music called the Harlem Stride style. Harlem speakeasies became the very definition of the Jazz Age — places like Tillie’s Chicken Shack, Pod’s and Jerry’s, the Rhythm Club, and Harry Hansberry’s Clam House.
HarlemWhiskeyRenaissance_Logo
The 2017 Harlem Whiskey Renaissance on March 30, 2017 seeks to celebrate the era of the Harlem Renaissance by providing an evening of music, performance, and of course, whiskey, that hearkens back to the era that gave us everything from Chick Webb to Claude McKay, Louis Armstrong to Zora Neal Hurston to Josephine Baker. We’ve lined up brands to pour whiskey from around the world and talk about the history of their spirits, with music provided by the Renaissance-inspired Dandy Wellington.

Most of the old speakeasies are long gone, but for one night at Mist Harlem, you can get a taste of the Harlem Renaissance along with several tastes of some of the best whiskies in the world.

All proceeds will be donated to the Boys & Girls Harbor.

Moonshine ‘n’ Mooncakes

Many cultures around the world have a celebration revolving around the traditional time of harvest. The end of summer, beginning of fall. A time when people come together to celebrate the bounty of the growing season — and have one last, big party before the coming of winter. In the old Celtic religions of Scotland, it’s Mabon, the Autumnal Equinox. In Chinese culture, it’s the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known by a name derived from one of the delicacies associated with it: Mooncake Day.

Mooncake

Moonshine ‘n’ Mooncakes brings these two festivals together, combining the food of Chinese Mooncake Day with the results of a good Scottish barley harvest. Of course, that barley has been distilled into a single malt scotch whisky by the good people at Springbank, one of two Scottish distilleries to control every aspect of the process, from malting the barley to bottling.

Springbank

Join the Whisky Roundtable at Oriental Garden on September 22nd, 2016 for a celebration of these two autumnal holidays in a way that would make the ancestors proud: by eating and drinking your fill.
