Smooth Ambler Vert
In our continuing efforts to champion the craft distilling movement in the U.S., we are hosting John Foster from Smooth Ambler on Monday, January 27th at 7pm. John will educate and taste us on the full line of whiskies they offer. A Welcome Punch will be served at 6:30pm, so come early and get cozy with your neighbors. Latecomers will not be seated but can wait at the bar and enjoy Smooth Ambler drink specials with their paid-up membership card.

Monday the 27th will also be the opening of Bar Jacklope, a new sipping lounge and tasting library in the back of Seven Grand. Bar Jackalope will be where you can explore the world of whiskies, 5 nights a week, and deepen your understanding of the whiskies you learn about through the Whiskey Society.
