Known for its classy concoctions and intimate vibe, The Rickey did what the Rickey does best earlier this week: host one of New York’s most stylish crowds in partnership with men’s travel, fashion, and lifestyle destination InsideHook. The online platform treated its readers to a night with The Balvenie, a Scottish whisky distillery known for its award-winning spirits.
Kicking off with an hour of drinks & hors d’eouvres, custom Balvenie scotch cocktails circulated around the packed room with upbeat tunes passing through every velvet nook and past every sleek suit. The cozy, dim-lit vibe the Rickey is known for served as the perfect spot for the InsideHook crowd: sophisticated, fashion-forward, and always eager for a new adventure. In this case, that new adventure came about halfway through the night, when Balvenie brand ambassador Lorne Cousin led a guided scotch tasting.
To keep the party going, guests were provided with Balvenie tasting booklets with a section of scotch cocktail recipes to make at home. Want to be a part of the next tasting and cocktail hour?
