Join the JBF Greens (foodies under 40) for a class on France’s oldest spirit, Armagnac, at New York’s new high-end, low-key bar, The Up & Up. 

Wine educator and Armagnac ambassador, May Matta-Aliah, will lead us through a tasting of Armagnacs, exploring the region, production process, and differences in styles and ages. The Up & Up owner Matt Piacentini and head bartender Chaim Dauermann will then show us how to make creative modern cocktails using the spirit. The Greens will also enjoy snacks from Les Trois Petits Cochons.
