The cocktail resurgence is in full swing. Interest in quality spirits and classic cocktails has grown exponentially over the last few years, but it can be difficult to learn the ins and outs of cocktail history. Much of the information online is misleading and often incorrect. Many cocktail bars get too busy for questions, or–let’s be honest–are a little tight-lipped when it comes to passing down their knowledge. Wisdom’s cocktail classes could not be more different. Our classes are built around answering your questions and sharing our knowledge.
Each class is held in our new VIP room and can be catered to your preference. Erik Holzherr, Wisdom’s owner, walks students through booze basics, starting with when and how liquor came into existence. Erik then breaks down familiar spirits before highlighting complicated processes, like fermentation and distillation, which are presented in a fun and accessible manner. He then moves on to the amazing world of vermouth, revealing the spirit’s versatility through generous samples. Next comes everything you want to know about whiskey providing the perfect segue to a classic Manhattan cocktail. Students learn about bitters, as well. For the finale, Erik will break down the most iconic and least understood cocktail, the Martini.
Be prepared to change your drinking life forever!
