The Boston Cocktail Summit

Boston is one of the top cocktail destinations in the country, and now the city lays claim to its very own cocktail-centric event launching next week. And, guess what? We're sponsoring it!

On Thursday, October 4, the first annual Boston Cocktail Summit kicks off three days of celebrating the city's fascinating cocktail history and New England breweries, wineries and distilleries—all while raising money for local charities.

Designed with both the professional bartender and cocktail enthusiast in mind, the Boston Cocktail Summit is packed with parties, seminars and tasting events allowing you to witness (or taste) first-hand just what why Boston continues to lead the national cocktail conversation.

Here at Imbibe HQ, we're excited to give away one pair of tickets to each of the Imbibe-sponsored seminars listed below. Click on each seminar link for more details and to enter to win, click below.
