June 15: Spirits Made Exclusively in New York

Slow Food NYC and The McCarren Hotel present the fourth annual SPIRITS OF NEW YORK event featuring spirits made in New York, primarily with principle ingredients grown and produced in New York, or, if not, fair- or direct-traded.

Here's a great opportunity to support a great cause (Slow Food NYC Urban Harvest) and to sample selected regional producers’ beverages served up neat or in imaginative cocktails.

The not-for profit Slow Food NYC Urban Harvest program is a good food education for NYC kids at 16 schools, in the Bronx and East Harlem, on the Lower East Side and in Brooklyn, and at a summer educational urban farm in Brownsville.

More than 1,000 Urban Harvest kids each year learn about the importance of good, clean, and fair food to their health, the health of their families and communities, and the health of the planet.

Participating distillers include: Astoria Distilling, Barrow’s Intense Liqueuer, Black Button Distilling, Black Dirt Distillery, Breuckelen Distilling, Caco Prieto, Harvest Spirits Farm Distilling, Jack from Brooklyn, Nahmias et Fils, Port Morris Distillery, Van Brunt Stillhouse
