Last night, Red Hook was rocking as Nat Sherman threw a party to unveil its Brooklyn pop-up, a collaboration with Widow Jane Distillery and Cacao Prieto, which you can read about in a story Hannah Palmer Egan wrote earlier this week. A torrential downpour kept everyone indoors, but we can’t think of three better things to be trapped in a room with than chocolate, whiskey, and cigars. Here’s a recap of the turnout and why you might want to head over to Conover Street after a long day at Ikea.
The promise of curated cigar and whiskey pairings packed Botanica with everyone from college students to finance guys. Michael Herklots, Nat Sherman’s executive director of Retail and Brand Development, created whiskey and cigar pairings–like the Blood in the Sand and Nat Sherman’s Metropolitan Angler–to give attendees a full tasting experience and remind people there are still a few places you can smoke in New York City. The shop is open for business Tuesdays through Sundays until at least October.
