Two weeks ago cocktail and spirit industry professionals and consumers descended upon Manhattan for the inaugural Manhattan Cocktail Classic. Founded by Lesley Townsend, the Classic is billed as, "New York City’s first ever multi-day event celebrating the history, contemporary culture, and artful craft of the cocktail." We can say first hand that MCC 2010 was firing on all cylinders. From the opening night gala to each individual seminar, cocktails were flying, business was being done and everyone was learning something new. Can't wait until next year!Special thanks to The Balvenie for bringing you this video.
