Here’s the thing: we’re just like you. Well, we were just like you. Our big day was rapidly approaching, and of course, just like you, we wanted it to be special. We had our perfect venue, an amazing band, and a caterer that really excited us. But we wanted something… more. Was that too much to ask?
We considered everything! Photo booth, food truck, donut trees, a cigar roller. All of these ideas were… fine? They just weren’t “the one”.
Then one day Jami had a great idea: scotch! Brian had recently attended a whisky tasting and raved about it. Would Macallan pour their party? After countless calls and emails, we got our wish. And the result was perfect.
Today we create the same types of spirits tastings at weddings and events across New York so other couples just like us can have access to a unique, memorable, hassle-free tasting experience on their own special day.
