Gin Cocktail Workshop
Ian Redmond
Detroit City Distillery Spirits 

Get ready to pay homage to our friends at Detroit City Distillery, who love the journey of making Gin. And more interesting yet — Making Gin with their fave Detroit Chef friends.  With an in-house distiller, DCD works with complex botanicals to customize Gin Bottles for cherished chefs and bartenders around town. E.G: Chef Kate Williams, creating the “Lady of the House Gin” with notes from the forest and garden.  With Chef Tom Lents from the Foundation Hotel to create “A Foundation Gin “perfecting the balance of floral and spice with native Michigan botanicals.  And with bartenders Will Lee and Rudy Leon at Grey Ghost, with the “Ghost Gin” a more classic gin exploring new territory with lychee, grains of paradise and lime.

Peeked your interest about Gin? Come and hone your beverage skills as passionate students in this two-hour Detroit Gin Cocktail Workshop learning the range and diversity of this beverage category while studying from numerous Detroit City Distillery Gins including the few named above.
Leave with a balanced palette, a bounty of knowledge and a new appreciation for the adored Gin and Tonic.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

What are people saying?

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
