Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Led by Keli Rivers, Ginnoisseur at Whitechapel San Francisco, this three part seminar experience of war, conquest, and adventure will go over everything you know and thought you knew about Genever, Gin, and then some. At the end of these three seminars you'll receive a Certificate of Membership to the Mother's Ruin Reform Society along with our official secret hand shake! PART 2- Thomas Chamberlain, Phylloxera and the Birth of Cocktails OH MY! The second installment will journey from the Industrial Revolution and one Irishman (not Philip Duff) who changed Gin forever to how a noble experiment made gin glamorous and finally possibly answer that $10,000 question "Mom, why is it called Old Tom?"

Juniper Ascending! The Epic Tale of Gin is a 3 part series, and is sold as one package.
