Distiller will discuss Prohibition in Hudson Valley
The Putnam History Museum will launch its new Salon Series on Saturday, Jan. 30, with a presentation by Ralph Erenzo, co-founder of Hudson Whiskey and Tuthilltown Spirits, based in Gardiner. The event begins at 5 p.m.
Erenzo will discuss Prohibition, its impact on the Hudson Valley and the rebirth of small-batch spirits. A whiskey tasting will follow and include other spirits from the distillery.
Tickets for the first of the Salon Series, formerly known as the Young Associates series, are $40 each, which includes cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres, if purchased before Jan. 26. They rise to $45 each after that date, or if purchased at the door. Tickets may be reserved in advance at eventbrite.com or by sending a check to Putnam History Museum, 63 Chestnut St., Cold Spring, NY 10516.
