You may have caught wind about the Lansdale-based distillery, Boardroom Spirits, in a recent issue of Philly Beer Scene. Since the article dropped, the site’s mad scientist-of-a-master distiller, Attila Kovács, a Transylvania, Romania native, has been busy expanding the distillery’s spirit line.
First came their flagship, a high-purity vodka, and soon after, a fresh all-natural cranberry vodka, followed by blueberry and cherry vodkas too. Now, as of Monday, Sept. 12, Boardroom Spirits is ready to debut their Beet Spirit at Martha‘s industry night. (The Kensington-based bar hosts weekly industry nights to highlight local products and Boardroom is joining in for the party.)
Details to Attend
So on Monday, 5–7 p.m., speed over to Martha (E. York St. & Martha St.) to snag your share of Boardroom’s Beet in themed cocktails. Of the night’s imbibing lineup, be sure to taste-test the Beet Down (pictured), as made with Beet Spirit, dill root syrup, fresh lemon and sea salt.
But, it gets better. Martha’s will be concocting cocktails with Boardroom’s fresh vodkas, as well. The bar will also feature an appropriate beet menu, which will include bites like: beet poke with coconut, lime and chilies or beet ice cream with local honey and sesame. Event-themed bites will be available free of charge with the option to order full portions.
About Beet Spirit
Want to talk Beet? The Boardroom team will be on-site Monday to answer all your questions. In the meantime, here’s the 411:
Earthy, fragrant and surprisingly strong, Beet Spirit is distilled from 100% real beets. Though technically defined as a “spirit,” it most closely resembles a brandy. Brandies distilled from vegetables are so rare in U.S. distilling that government classifications haven’t caught up yet.
