ATTENTION Planners: Ask us about becoming a favorite vendor

All of the favorite vendors on this page, we stand by. If you’re a vendor that we’ve worked with in the past but don’t see yourself here, please give us a shout

If you’re a spirits brand and want to pour our parties, please contact us for more information about becoming a partner. We’ll pair you with amazing couples to help create lasting memories and emotional connections with everyone in attendance.

About Us

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.
