Vintage Wines, A Member of the Winebow Group
Spirits Specialist

I've been working at Vintage Wines in Chicago as the Spirit Specialist for about a year now, with a foundation in the food/bev industry. I have a deep passion for agave spirits, especially for Mezcal. I love being creative and developing cocktails using a balance of fruit and earth in each sip, and if there's some spice, even better! If there is one spirit that is overlooked and under rated, in my humble opinion, that would be grappa. I'll be featuring a grappa cocktail at TOTC this year that will prove how approachable grappa can be when its applied in cocktail form.
