Grappa and Brandy Cocktails, Anyone?

Devin Kidner

It's a beautiful thing when two small, local businesses come together to create something awesome!

HOLLOW LEG is proud (and super stoked!) to announce our new partnership with the one-and-only, Rhine Hall Distillery, Chicago's newest micro-distillery crafting brandies and grappas from local apples! 

That's right! Right along with HOLLOW LEG's mission to create sustainable cocktails, Rhine Hall is dedicated to sourcing their apples from the Great Lakes region, their waste is collected by Chicago composting company, Resource Center, they support the Alliance for the Great Lakes, and their business is father-daughter owned. 

On top of all of those amazing things, they make incredible grappas and brandies.

And y'all know us: Here at HOLLOW LEG we love whipping up cocktails that are delicious, sustainable, and interesting, so of course when we got our hands on the grappas you see above and the brandies you see below, we went, well, a litttttle crazy. 

It wasn't long before we all decided that taking grappa and brandy cocktails to the next level would be the next best thing, and BAM! A cocktail class series was born.

The coolest thing about the classes is that they include a distillery tour, which means you get to learn about the whole process of making brandy and grappa, from tree to still, and then experience creating cocktails in class.

So....tree to tastebuds?

Check out the first class, here!
