Spirit Tasting and Bottle of Haymaker's Vodka at Ventura Spirits

venturaspirits.jpg

Since 2011, Ventura Spirits has been striving to hand-craft adventurous spirits that blend the wild and cultivated together. Inspired by the regional liquor-making tradition, the distillery's explorers take their California coastal influences to create something new. With a handful of fruits of their labors, they delight their visitors with such varietals as "Opuntia," which is a prickly pear spirit made from the fruit of the Nopal cactus and blends the taste of tequila and sun-ripened California fruits. To feel like hiking in the mountains of the central coast, clients just need to try "Wilder," which fuses native plants such as sagebrush, purple sage, and pixie mandarin peel to produce fresh and savory aromas that give its own unique spin on gin.

Blathering aside, here’s a GREAT deal for the following: Spirit tasting for two and one take-home bottle of Haymaker’s Vodka for $35 ($31 on 9/7). Regular price $60. Or tasting for four for (how do you like that alliteration) just $69 ($61 on 9/7). Grab the deal at bit.ly/VenturaSpirits (affiliate).

Ventura County and the California Channel Islands have a rich history and cultural heritage dating back 12,000 years, when the Chumash people first hunted and gathered along the Pacific-facing lands. And the Museum of Ventura County aims to encapsulate everything from those tribal beginnings right up though the modern age. Since 1913, the museum has played host to historical exhibits that feature both ancient and modern artifacts, a fine art collection of more than 30,000 pieces, and educational programs that run the gamut from specialized school tours to art and craft sessions for children. The museum boasts a research library and community meeting space for those who want to dive deeper into the region’s enthralling legacy.

Located at 100 East Main Street in Ventura. More on the Museum at venturamuseum.org.
