Salt Lake City, Thursday, May 12, 2016 — Craft Lake City and Finca present the fourth Craft Cocktail workshop of a five-part series. The workshop will feature Ogden’s Own Five Wives Vodka and will be held on Wednesday, May 25, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Finca located at 327 W. 200 S. Salt Lake City, UT 84101.
Introduced to the Utah market in December 2011, Five Wives Vodka has become a staple among local bars and patrons. Using mountain spring water from Ogden Canyon, Ogden’s Own Distillery has created a high quality spirit that pays homage to Utah’s beautiful natural resources and rich history.
Craft Lake City’s Craft Cocktail workshops highlight local liquor companies in Utah and present the opportunity for learning from artisanal spirit enthusiasts. The May 25 cocktail workshop will feature vodka education and tasting with Ogden’s Own Distillery. Finca will provide “pinchos” (small bites), and Bar Manager Natalie Hamilton will give a cocktail recipe demonstration.
There is a $50 material fee for this workshop. Must be 21 or older to register. Limited tickets are available. No refunds. Pre-registration is required: sign-up here. Visit craftlakecity.com/workshops or our Facebook for more information.
