Join Union Square Wines & Spirits to kick off Superbowl weekend with one our most spirited tastings of the year!

Attendees may look forward to Swedish stylings from Martini Bowl 2010 champion Karlsson’s Gold Vodka and Heavy Water Vodka, a juniper-fueled UK Invasion from the #1 contender for the 2011 title Bulldog Gin and Hendrick’s Gin, as well as righteous elixirs from DH Krahn Gin and Russian Standard Vodka! This year’s Bowl features a full roster of New York State spirits as well! Supporters of local libations will be pleased to sip and savor Finger Lakes Distillery’s Seneca Drums Gin and Vintner’s Wild Berry Vodka, Westchester’s own Comb Vodka and Comb 9 New York Gin, Long Island’s LiV Potato Vodka, Breuckelen Gin, and the Hudson Valley’s Core Apple Vodka!
