Greenbar Distillery


Let this artisanal distillery take you on a trip to tiki cocktail heaven

Love great-tasting, organic craft spirits, and can’t get enough of that South Pacific vibe? Then we’ve got a trip planned for you. BlackboardEats and Greenbar Distillery are teaming up for a one-of-a-kind cocktail class and distillery tour—tiki style.

Throughout May and June, the Downtown Arts District distillery is offering an exclusive two-hour distillery tour and craft tiki cocktail class, just for BBE subscribers. And Greenbar has got the goods (and cred) to make it happen. The first Los Angeles distillery to open since Prohibition, and creators of one of the largest lines of organic spirits on the planet, Greenbar is LA in a bottle. It’s a sip of Southern California.

At this hands-on event, you’ll soak up some serious knowledge on how spirits are made, and discover just what goes into crafting the contents of your glass. First, Greenbar Distillery welcomes you with a craft tiki cocktail and takes you on a tour of the distillery’s production area, where you’ll witness every part of the process, from fermentation to barrel storage to the bottling line.
Then comes the real fun: an intimate, hands-on class, as an expert cocktail creator breaks down the best way to craft the kinds of drinks you’ve had at your favorite tiki bar—those beautiful, complex, well-garnished cocktails that hit the spot whether it’s warm or cold. Then get your mixologist on as you choose two different tiki cocktails to make yourself, using a range of Greenbar Distillery spirits—including two that are no longer available to the public—plus bitters, Amari, liqueurs, syrups, fresh juices, and tropical fruit. Apply your newfound expertise, experiment, share, and enjoy your own craft creations. Bottoms up!
