Erik Holzherr, owner of Wisdom cocktail parlor, Church and State, and Atlas Arcade is a man of many liquors, but there’s a spirit that is closest to his heart, and he’s starting up the Wisdom Gin Club to show his love for the clear stuff.
If you’ve ever been to Wisdom, you know they can mix a mean cocktail from any booze you choose. But it’s also a temple of gin, and Holzherr is its chief evangelist. On Feb. 6, he’ll let the world in on why he believes it is first among equals.
Twenty bucks will get you in for a guided tour of nine gins, including Leopold’s Gin, Half Moon Orchard Gin and local boys’ Green Hat Gin. Holzherr, Dan Searing and other specialists and ambassadors will be your guides. The club’s kickoff gets started at 7:30 p.m. at Wisdom, 1432 Pennsylvania Ave. SE. RSVP at Wisdom’s blog .
