Join Vizcaya VXOP for A Celebration of the Cocktail on May 18th

It’s no secret that cocktails are back in vogue—that is, if they ever truly went out. Vizcaya VXOP rum will be among the world-class distillers helping to celebrate both the art and science of the cocktail, during a five-day festival in Manhattan.

Billed as part fete, part festival, part conference and part cocktail party, the Manhattan Cocktail Classic offers a truly unique experience for connoisseurs of high-quality spirits. This event promises to be both entertaining and educational, with a variety of activities taking place at venues all around the New York metropolitan area—including the New York Public Library, the Astor Center and the Chelsea Piers.

So what can the curious cocktail lover expect from the Manhattan Cocktail Classic? Nothing less than an extravaganza. There will be an opening gala, rooftop parties, sunset cruises, numerous seminars, tastings and many opportunities to mingle with the world’s best bartenders and distillers, as well as fellow cocktail enthusiasts.

Vizcaya VXOP, the ultimate sipping rum, invites you to partake in a very special event, held on the final day of the Cocktail Classic. “From ‘Grass to Glass’ – The Rum Experience” will take place on Tuesday, May 18, at 7:00 p.m. Held in The Study at Astor Center, this informative and enlightening seminar will be hosted by pre-eminent rum expert Ian Burrell, who is one of the United Kingdom’s top mixologists and the world’s only global Rum Ambassador. Ian will guide you through a tasting of superior rums, including Vizcaya VXOP, as well as cocktails that incorporate this noble spirit, while regaling you with stories of rum-related adventures from around the globe.

This exclusive glimpse into the fascinating culture of rum is limited to only 26 guests, so don’t hesitate. Join Ian Burrell and Vizcaya VXOP at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic, the first-ever citywide celebration paying homage to the culture, heritage and craft of the cocktail. Cheers!
