Italian Spirits, Cocktails and Artisan Pizza!
8 Italian Spirit producers who specialize in Amari, Aromatized Wines, Liqueurs, and Spirits are traveling to Santa Barbara to share their high-quality Italian spirits with our members and guests. Start the afternoon with La Sirena Spritz, and make your way through 4 stations of Spirit producers to taste 20 different spirits, liqueurs, and Amari.
Jessica Garver of The Monk’s Table & spirit producer George Jerbis have designed a menu of craft cocktails featuring these unique spirits. Each guest receives tickets for two cocktails of their choice. Please note that additional cocktails will not be available for purchase at the event. This is a unique opportunity to taste over 20 of the top Amari and bitters in the industry, with the producers themselves, and then enjoy cocktails featuring those spirits! In the true Italian style, ESB will provide cuisine that celebrate the culture of Italy! Ferno Grills will be preparing and serving naturally fermented artisan pizzas with a variety of toppings to our guests, accompanied by salad and antipasti.
