Reservation Phone Number: (504) 681-4444
Price: $50 inclusive

Move beyond mimosas and bellini with Hangar 1 Vodka to discover the versatility of vodka, one of the most underestimated and overlooked spirits. An original member of the craft spirits movement, the Bay Area distillery was instrumental in introducing small batch vodka to the market. Made with a blend of wine grapes and exotic fruit, Hangar 1 Vodka is crafted using traditional European eau de vie distillation methods to extract the subtle but profound essence of the ingredients used. Hosted by Caley Shoemaker, the Head Distiller for Hangar 1 Vodka, guests will be led through an experiential tasting event that explores the numerous characteristics of the spirit highlighting why vodka is primed to make a powerful comeback. 

A Denver native, Caley was born with a creative spirit and was drawn to her hometown’s dynamic beverage scene. After spending years studying the art of distillation and earning her stripes in the world of whiskey, Caley now leads Hangar 1 Vodka into its next phase of its lauded history, while joining the elite group of female head distillers of an American spirits brand. Caley is endlessly inspired by the area’s abundant seasonal, local ingredients and is looking forward to continuing Hangar 1 Vodka’s tradition of producing a well-crafted spirit that showcases the natural essence of the finest fruit available.
