As a tribute to the arts and to kick off Berkshire Mountain Distillers 15th anniversary, the Cultural Cocktails program features a collection of 16 recipes highlighting BMD spirits to be served at bars, restaurants, hotels and events across the region. Based on classic cocktail recipes created by local bartenders, each drink has been named in collaboration with local cultural organizations. The program begins on May 26 and will continue through October 10, 2022.
