Every year New York City’s bartenders, owners, brand ambassadors, liquor companies and cocktail enthusiasts gather in New York City for the annual Manhattan Cocktail Classic held at the New York Public Library. Ward III & The Rum House have been asked to participate most years in some capacity.
For two years in a row, the Ward III was enlisted by Maker’s Mark to represent the brand at the kick-off Gala, mixing Maker’s Mark cocktails and donning special red Ward III t-shirts.
Through another strong brand relationship, Ward III was asked to represent High West Distillery at the Gala, making cocktails and working their room.
Additionally, both Ward III & The Rum House have hosted a number of events on site during the Classic on a variety of topics including bespoke cocktails at Ward III and how to create a cocktail list for all tastes at The Rum House.
