Art in the Age (short for Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction), is a Philadelphia-based retailer/artists collective that is best known for its highly distinctive, artisanal spirits. Root, Snap, Rhubarb Tea and Sage were conceived by Art in the Age founder Steven Grasse, who, it's worth noting, was also responsible for revitalizing Narragansett beer, as well as creating Hendricks gin and Sailor Jerry rum.
The four spirits will be featured Thursday, Oct. 10, at Portland Hunt & Alpine Club, 75 Market St., from 4 to 7 p.m. Art in the Age's brand ambassador will be on hand to create cocktails together with Hunt & Alpine club owner Andrew Volk and his crew.Tweet
