Science of Spirits 2019

Friday, October 25, 2019 7:30-10:30pm

IDs will be checked at the door

Explora is proud to present our first annual Science of Spirits, an Adult Night for ages 21 and up!

Sip, shop, and learn about the science of liquors as you visit with experts from three local distilleries: Hollow Spirits, Left Turn Distilling, and Safehouse Distilling. While enjoying your favorite distilled spirit, cocktail, or mocktail, you can explore the science behind a variety of liquors. ABQ Barkeeps will be selling mocktails for our Designated Drivers or those who just want a non-alcoholic option!

Experience exciting activities and demonstrations including:

  • Creating a cloud in a bottle
  • Experimenting with different alcohol densities
  • Alcohol pairing adventures at one of our flavor stations
  • And more!

In a special nod to the season, costumes are welcome but optional—without masks please!

In addition to special activities and all of Explora’s awesome exhibits, three free tastings are included with admission. Various spirits and mocktails will also be available for purchase. 

My Sweet Basil will be offering a special menu for sale to complement our selection of drinks.

Dryland Wilds will be sharing their fragrance extraction processes and have scents available for purchase!

Our guest DJ, Avalon Jay, will be providing music to enhance your sipping experience. 

 

You are encouraged to bring cash to expedite your purchases of food and beverages.
