August Botanical Beverages

Step into the blooming Dooryard Garden for a seasonal cocktail mixing and tasting experience featuring Brooklyn Gin. Discover the botanical qualities of gin, take in the aromas of our garden herbs, and experience how smell can transform your sense of taste. Members of the Brooklyn Gin team share how they make their gin and what makes it drinkable on its own as well as a great mixer. Blue Hill at Stone Barns bartender Tara O'Keefe will share cocktail and herb vocabulary and help you hone your ability to discern subtle flavors in mixed drinks. Taste cocktail components along the way and enjoy your finished drinks. When the mixing is done, tour the terrace garden where many of our botanicals grow and harvest ingredients to take home and use in your own cocktail creations.

Brooklyn Gin is a craft spirit made in New York with fresh citrus peels and hand-cracked juniper. Their gin is fresh, complex, and flavorful. Unlike mass-produced factory gins, Brooklyn Gin does everything by hand and uses local fruit and corn grown in upstate New York.
