SOLD OUT :( Sorry for not posting sooner but the flood of news this week delayed a few stories… including this one. We’re assuming those who REALLY REALLY care about nog already heard through the, um, nog vine. We’ll ask Sun about the possibilities for any smaller noggy events. You can always stop in and get a glass. Or two.
We refuse to be impressed until they have a contract to serve eggnog minis on Alaska Airlines.
But how about a round of seasonal applause for Capitol Hill’s own Sun Liquor as the distillery takes its nog big time. Here’s the fancy press release:
Sun Liquor has partnered with Total Wine & More to offer retail sales of Sun Liquor’s much-loved Aged Eggnog to consumers for the first time ever.
“Our commitment is to provide an authentic and specialized experience in both our retail cocktail bars and throughout our many bottled spirits which are sold currently in the Western States. Our aged eggnog exemplifies this boutique experience and each year we strive to make it more widely available.”
Michael Klebeck, President and Founder
Sun Liquor has been making its Aged Eggnog every holiday season since 2006. Hand-made by barman Erik Chapman from fresh eggs, cream, apple brandy, bourbon, rum and sugar. Sun Liquor’s Aged Eggnog is made in small batches and aged for 30 days in glass, a process that breaks down the fats and proteins, making the nog silky smooth and delicious.
It’s the end of an era as, previously, you could only score Sun’s eggnog right here on Capitol Hill. Times have changed. Sun founders the Klebeck brothers know a thing or two about turning delicious treats into major business. In summer 2013, Sun took its first big step forward as it scored a contract with Alaska Airlines and opened its E Pike production facility. Now, Capitol Hill and its eggnog have also grown up.
To celebrate our new maturity, Sun Liquor, a longtime CHS advertiser, is holding its first ever Nog Ball next week at its bottling shop across the street from the E Pike distillery. Festivities include…
the season’s first taste of the 2014 eggnog, but revelry will also be fueled by beverages from 2bar Spirits, Caffe Vita, Hilliards, Snowdrift Cider, and For a Song Wine. Because a night of drinking nothing but eggnog sounds digestively dicey. Food comes via Off the Rez, Top Pot, and Snoqualmie Ice Cream.
Tickets are $45 — or $90 will get you in *and* send you home with your own liter. All proceeds benefit Wellspring Family Services.
You can add the event to the growing roster of 2014 Capitol Hill holiday fun. Merry eggnog!
