It was another whirlwind trip to New York, but well worth the trouble as we participated in the Annual VOS Grande Tasting event held at the City Winery. As usual it was a great opportunity for us to show and talk about our products to a wide range of people including retailers, restaurant owners, and many of the VOS sales staff who handle the Heavenly Spirits portfolio.
We also had the opportunity this year to talk with some folks from the media like Gregg Glaser of Modern Distillery Age www.distilleryage.com. If you are in the spirits industry and have not yet seen his on-line PDF magazine you really should. The articles are relevant and the design is clean and up-beat. We also got to talk with Anaïs Digonnet a journalist who writes for the publishers of France-Amerique magazine and Marie, a representative from FRANCE Today magazine.
Of course you could not be in NY talking about Armagnac without May Matta Aliah (In The Grape) dropping by. In this case we happened to find her talking with one of her former wine students.
All in all it was a very worthwhile but somewhat exhausting trip as we drove home to Massachusetts that same night. See more photos in our gallery here.
