We’re Recapping Chilled 100 ELEVATE 2023: Vincenzo’s Dinner with Traverse City Whiskey Co.

A group of our Chilled 100 bartenders were treated to an elevated dinner experience at beautiful Vincenzo’s Restaurant in Louisville, Ky.

The event was sponsored by Traverse City Whiskey Co. and led by co-owner Jared Lapp.

As well as being able to taste a selection of whiskeys, we enjoyed a flight of cocktails featuring some of Traverse City Whiskey Co. spirits, created by mixologist Crystal Jahn and crafted to pair with each of our courses throughout the evening.

Vincenzo’s Restaurant is a perfect blend of casual elegance and charm. The atmosphere has an air of sophistication to it, balanced perfectly with the feeling of being surrounded by friends, old and new alike. Connie Bailey, Director Of Events for Vincenzo’s was truly wonderful from start to finish. Professional, and personable, she made us all feel welcome the moment we arrived.

Our reception began with a welcome cocktail called Whiskey Lemon Spritz – made with TCWC North Coast Rye – and it was an absolute hit! The perfect way to kick off the night – light, citrusy, and refreshing!

The drink pairing with our first course was a Black Cherry Lemon Smash featuring the small batch, hand crafted American Cherry Edition whiskey, and Traverse City’s own premium cocktail cherries (which are stunningly delicious – both in cocktails and just to eat on their own!)

For our next drink, we were treated to the Figsky Ginger – again featuring the North Coast Rye, along with fig and honey jam, Drambuie, a dash of ground cinnamon and topped with ginger beer. This drink was unique, full of flavor, and hit all the right notes. It may have been my favorite of the night!

To round out our evening, we finished with a Golden Revolver. Kahlua coffee liqueur, TCWC Cherry whiskey, Grand Marnier and Amaretto combined to make the perfect ending to a perfect evening.

A night filled with fun and laughter, amazing food, exceptional service, delicious drinks and wonderful whiskey – we could not have asked for a better way to wrap up our first day at Chilled 100 Elevate.

Thank you again to Vincenzo’s restaurant and their amazing staff, Jared and Traverse City Whiskey Co. for treating us and sharing your incredible selection of spirits, Crystal for the craft cocktails, and Chilled Magazine for such a fantastic event! Definitely a night to remember!!!
