G&G Party Pics

Spirit of the Arts

On the final day of G&G Distilled, guests gathered at the historic Gardencourt grounds to honor the creative spirit of Kentucky. Upon entering the building, guests immersed themselves in a visual experience by the Speed Art Museum while enjoying specialty cocktails created by Angel Teta, Angel’s Envy whiskey guardian. Following cocktail hour, guests made their way to the lawn for a plein air luncheon prepared by chef Edward Lee, owner of 610 Magnolia and Nami, complete with a special reading by former Kentucky Poet Laureate Crystal Wilkinson and a musical performance by the Kentucky Opera.
