Looking for a high-spirited way to celebrate Mother’s Day? New Liberty Distillery will be hosting three mixology courses ideal for a tipsy and heart-warming commemoration in their outdoor garden.


Located in the vibrant South Kensington neighborhood, New Liberty Distillery is known for producing award-winning craft spirits, such as the revived heritage Kinsey brand. The original building that once served as a horse stable is hosting three spring-themed outdoor cocktail classes in celebration of Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 9. The three one-hour classes led by online sales and spirits club manager, Jacob Looney, are set for 12:00 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

“We’re excited to welcome guests back to our beautiful outdoor space to enjoy some socially distanced fun with mixology,” says Looney.

For a one-time payment of $125 and a $115 payment for New Liberty Distillery Spirit Cub members, guests will receive admission for two along with all ingredients needed for the class. This includes a professional-grade barware, ice garnishes and other tools that will be provided by the distillery.

Mother-child pairs can expect a raucous afternoon, as Looney curates an hour of mixing and imbibing. Students will be taught how to construct two signature Liberty Distillery libations: an Aviation made with snug harbor gin, liberty belle crème de violette liqueur, liberty belle sour cherry liqueur and lemon juice and a Lucky Lavender Fizz made of snug harbor gin, kinsey triple sec, lavender syrup, egg white, clarified lemon juice and club soda.

Those planning to attend are asked to register online, where attendees can gain admission and access to the cocktail kit. New Liberty Distillery is also offering a plethora of cocktail gift packages to purchase for your mother on her special day alongside an extensive selection of craft spirits available for purchase in the distillery’s retail space.

"We’ve taken the hard work out of gift giving,” says Looney. “Mom is sure to love our take on the Aviation recipe and our cocktail kits are the perfect gift—and, why not pick up something for yourself while you’re in the shop?”
