About this Virtual Experience

Please join Napa Valley Distillery in an exclusive partnership with priority experiences for this special, online bitters class. “Why do I need bitters?” “Where can I buy them?” “What exactly are ‘bitters’ and how do I use them?” You will get the answers to these, and all your bitters questions in this fun and interactive, online class.

NVD will send you and your group a bottle of our unique craft spirits along with a selection of 3 cocktail bitters (types subject to change with availability). During this 45-60 minute experience you will follow along at home and learn how to turn a good cocktail into a great cocktail with just a few drops of bitters and will see how different types of bitters really change up your drink!

*All bookings must be made a minimum of 10 business days in advance to allow for shipping of packages.
