The spring showers may have dissipated, but Boston’s wettest weekend is still looming.
Thirst Boston, a four-day festival dedicated to all things distilled, shaken and stirred returns to its namesake city on May 20-23, and for the first time Cocktail Enthusiast will be attending.
Its dozens of seminars and classes will cover topics ranging from cask strength whiskey to cordials, and feature local industry figures like Ezra Star of Drink as well as national names like WhistlePig Master Distiller Dave Pickerell. In between there will be pop-up bars supplying samples from the likes of Anchor Distilling and takeovers of local bars by New England favorites like the Portland Hunt & Alpine Club.
In short, there’s going to be a tremendous amount of ground to cover. But we’re going to do our best to cover that ground between drinks. And should you live in the Greater Boston/New England area, tickets are still available. Maybe we’ll bump into you while trying to secure that last seat for a mezcal tasting.
