Gordon's is hosting Reed Walker, founder and distiller of Cotton & Reed Rum Distillery for a seminar, cocktail class and full-on Rum Bash on Tuesday, January 29! Reed Walker and his co-founder Jordan Cotton were NASA strategists and friends who decided the spirits industry needed their expertise far more than the aerospace industry and built Washington D.C.'s first rum distillery.

With the help of Taylor & Taylor Whiskey Co., Cotton & Reed is launching their rum brand in New England. Nick and Zach Taylor flew to D.C. and picked a single ex-Blanton's barrel of Navy Strength rum and picked a Massachusetts exclusive single barrel. They figured there was no better place than Gordon's to host a release party. Reed, will take us through the wild yeast strains, the unique still and the superb sugar cane that make C&R such an excellent rum. He will also teach us to make simple delightful cocktails using all six available expressions.

The tasting will include:

White Rum
Mellow Gold
Dry Spice Rum
Allspice Dram
Despaccino
MA Exclusive Ex-Blantons Navy Strength Single Barrel
