East Meets Westland Distillery

East Meets Westland

Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is a celebration to welcome the new year and invite good fortune. Friends and families sit around the table to share dishes with lucky meanings—such as fish, dumplings, noodles, and of course whisky. On Thursday, January 30th, Westland Distillery continues this tradition at Golden Unicorn Restaurant in NYC. Please join us for a family-style Chinese feast with accompanying drams of Westland’s acclaimed American Single Malt Whiskies.

Westland is leading the emergence of the next big thing in whiskey, American Single Malt. Distilled, matured, and bottled in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, their whiskies bring a new and distinctly American voice to the world of single malt. To produce their single malt, they adopt the same basic raw materials and processes used for generations in the old world, but they don’t simply seek to replicate the results. Instead, they create whiskies that reflect the distinct qualities of their region. During the dinner, Westland’s Chris Riesbeck will be discussing this unique approach and how the distillery is expressing a true sense of place in whiskey.

It will indeed be a night of East Meets West—celebrating Asian culture in the United States, with an American single malt whiskey from the far reaches of the continent.

Ticket price includes: A Welcome Cocktail, tasting of 6 whiskies, dinner, and a gift.

LunarNewYear

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.
