Boscobel Shows How to Get Tipsy the 1800s

Master distiller demonstrates how to make historic cocktails

Did our early 19th-century ancestors imbibe unusual brews? Find out in Boscobel’s West Meadow during a presentation by master distiller Jason Grizzanti.

Grizzanti, co-owner of the Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery, will discuss a variety of liquors and brandies and demonstrate how to mix popular 1800s libations with them all. Having trained at Cornell University, the Seibel Institute in Chicago and Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, Grizzanti has a unique expertise in grain and fruit fermentation, practical distillation, as well as distillery-design.

How to Get Tipsy in the 1800s takes place under the pavilion at Boscobel on Saturday, June 29, 4 – 7 p.m. Each $35 admission ticket will include the presentation, cocktail samples, and cheese and crackers.
