🥃 Each ticket includes Fort Hamilton Distillery’s signature Whiskey flight and Maple Old Fashioned!

Join ensemble132 at Fort Hamilton Distillery for a music and liquor pairing on Thursday, May 16th, at 7:00pm! The NYC-based chamber music collective, ensemble132, has curated a special program of string quartet selections (including their own original arrangements) to match Fort Hamilton’s stellar selection of liquors and drinks.

Ticket holders will get the unique experience of being guided through the complex flavor profiles of each sample while being immersed in an eclectic program of pieces ranging from Haydn to Ravel to Miles Davis, each chosen carefully to pair with a specific drink. Music has long been known to be the most evocative and sensory of art forms, so it should be an eye-opening (as well as ear, nose, and mouth) experience as the colors and flavors of each drink and musical selection blend and intermingle.

🎟️ Doors open at 7:00pm, show starts at 7:30pm

🎻 Performers:
Abi Fayette, violin
Stephanie Zyzak, violin
Zhanbo Zheng, viola
Zachary Mowitz, cello
