Wine & Spirits

Experience a new, bold taste through the use of molecular distilling from plants, fruit and yeast. Endless West discovered a one-of-a-kind distilling technique, analyzing the molecules that create the flavors and aromas needed to concoct the perfect whiskey. Each small batch is analyzed through smell and taste to determine the molecular components they wish to experience through the drink. Next, the molecules are gathered through natural resources. These ingredients are brought to the lab to be crafted into different iterations until perfected. Lastly, the product is bottled to be shared with the world.

 

Endless West uses environmentally conscious processes to reduce its carbon footprint. Compared to other traditional whiskey production, Endless West protects the resources needed to produce the spirit, requiring 94 percent less water and 92 percent less agricultural land while emitting 82 percent less CO2 emissions.

Host a Fabled Business Event in Wonderful Copenhagen

I imagine that when writer Hans Christian Andersen mused, “Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale,” he was standing at the edge of Copenhagen’s historic Tivoli Gardens, one of his favorite haunts, enlivened by the swirl of human happiness that surrounded him: children laughing; carousels spinning; games of chance played for prizes; lovers holding hands; hungry people whispering over sweets, hot drinks, beer and towering, open-faced smørrebrød, Denmark’s quintessential sandwich. That fairy tale lives on today at the second-oldest amusement park in the world, a spectacle of folly architecture, bakeries, gardens, rides, restaurants, puppet shows and joy ... and which also happens to be one of the city’s most storied places to convene for business.

Irwin’s Review

I recently dined at Irwin’s in Philadelphia. The restaurant is located on the rooftop of the Bok Building, a former school turned collective of small businesses, non-profits, artist workshops, a bar and restaurant. I previously visited Bok for the bar and yoga classes, and I was excited to experience the restaurant.

La Concha Resort Puerto Rico Review

Arriving early afternoon in Puerto Rico, we jumped in an Uber and took a short, 15-minute drive from the airport to La Concha.  As it was Tuesday, the streets were not too busy and the hotel lobby was calm. During the weekend, the scene likely would have been more bustling. We were greeted by a staff member who requested proof of vaccination and government-issued ID, and were given a wristband to indicate we were fully vaccinated. All guests are required to be vaccinated and wear masks at all times while moving around the hotel. Hand sanitizer stations were placed around the lobby, in elevators and in each common area.
