This week on The Speakeasy host Damon Boelte speaks with Justin Briggs, bartender, brand ambassador, consultant, and mixologist. Justin Briggs currently bartends at The Gin Palace and Barbes in New York City, is a Brand Ambassador at Imbue Vermouth, and often consults at James Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY. Recently, Briggs has been hard at work on various bitters, which he has had the pleasure of presenting at Cecil and Merl in his Cherry Bitters, which contains a delicate balance of bright, sour cherry notes, soft vanilla tones, and a pleasantly bitter finish. Briggs has also recently been an ambassador for Imbue Vermouth, makers of the Bittersweet Vermouth, a flagship aperitif designed to be poured simply onto rocks and sipped. Tune-in to learn more about these great products that can be stocked in your home bar today! This program has been sponsored by Hearst Ranch.
