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:

THE Wine Event of the Year- Bordeaux en Primeur 2016
Last January we were privileged to be visited by the Union des Grands Cru de Bordeaux, and hosted what might be the biggest event we’ve ever run, pouring 64 wines from the 2015 vintage.
While Boston was not lined up for another event UGC event in 2019, we felt that as there is so much interest in Bordeaux’s obscenely brilliant 2016 vintage, that it would be a criminal waste not to at least run our own ‘en primeur’ tasting this year.
Gordon's is extremely proud to offer tickets for the first time, for our 2016 Bordeaux En Primeur event and excited to announce that it is even bigger than last year, as we’ve got 73 wines lined up.
Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande, Pape Clement, Domaine de Chevalier, La Conseillante, Calon Segur, Beychevelle, Léoville Barton, Langoa Barton, Léoville Las Cases, Brainaire Ducru, Léoville Poyferré, Talbot, Branaire Ducru to name a few!
We’ll be at one of Boston’s finest event venues, the Cyclorama Building, and as we’re not part of the UGC ‘tour’, this year the wines will be poured by a combination of château representatives and Gordon’s wine experts. We cannot say enough about how good the 2016s are, and we are so excited to invite you for an evening of great wine, food and company!
N.B, there are no physical tickets. Please have each attendee reference the ticket buyers name at the door.
