Join Dr Inkwell and Oakland Spirits Co.’s Michael Pierce for a tour, tasting and cocktail! At this private event, you will learn a little bit about why OsCo considers themselves the punk rockers of the indie-distilling world, why they have the thumbs up from local bartenders, how they create flavors that no other distilleries have made (or would even think of making) and enjoy some of their unusual offerings which may include Automatic Gin (the classical Uptown Dry Gin, the citrus-forward No.5, or the briny Sea Gin) and Glasshouse Brandy (previous flavors included Marjoram, Chinese Mint, Garam Masala, Shiso).

Your ticket gets you:

A drink on arrival: Oakland Spirits Co. gin & tonic, twomile wine, or Crooked City Cider
A tour of the distillery
A guided tasting of 4 spirits, with the option of substituting wine or cider for any tasting
Light appetizers
A discussion, demonstration & tasting of cocktails made with the unusual flavors of OsCo spirits
A chance to mingle, snack, & enjoy the art gallery
An opportunity to buy Oakland Spirits products
