Get ready for an experience unlike any other, as we tour, taste, and learn our way through Manhattan’s first and only distillery since prohibition, at Our New York / Vodka.

Bar Manager, Rustun Nichols, and local Partner, David Ortiz, will greet you with a welcome Our/Martini cocktail, followed by an in-depth tour of where all the magic happens- the distillery!

While touring the facilities, we’ll learn about the unique distilling process that makes their vodka so special, while understanding what it took for Our/New York to become the first distillery since prohibition.

Following the tour, enjoy a taste of both their 80 and 100 proof Expression Vodkas. Before we get hands-on, Rustun will guide us through making and infusing our own take-home bottle of Our/New York Vodka, using their bounty of seasonal fruits, herbs, botanicals, and vegetables.

After making our custom creations, it’s time enjoy a snack alongside a celebratory Excelsior ‘64 cocktail with new friends, and the Our/New York Vodka team!

*Attendees are encouraged to stay after the class to enjoy Our/New York’s vast array of vodka products and cocktails.

About Our/New York Vodka

Our/NewYork Vodka began its story in Stockholm, as a black ops project under the umbrella of Pernot Ricard. The distillery, and the vodka, became a hit, making its way to vibrant cities like Berlin, Amsterdam, and NYC.

The small, disruptive bottle is a major contributor for people to often refer to them as “the vodka in the small, cool bottle”.

The vodka is distilled, blended, hand bottled and labeled in our micro-distillery in Manhattan.
