Celebrate National Whiskey Day at Liquid Alchemy

The meadery will be serving one-of-a-kind cocktails on Saturday, May 20.


Whiskey lovers and day drinkers, this event is for you. On Saturday, May 20, Liquid Alchemy Beverages is celebrating National Whiskey Day with whiskey barrel-aged mead from noon–9 p.m. The whiskey barrels are from Smyrna distillery Painted Stave, which are blended with Sweet Nothing mead.

Samples will be available for $2–$3; glasses will be $7-$8 each. With less than four barrels of rye whiskey on hand, owner Jeffrey Cheskin says Liquid Alchemy will be serving cocktails until they run out.

Even if you’re not a whiskey drinker, the concoctions are surprisingly drinkable. One whiskey-mead mixture includes a meld of citrus fruits, while another has strawberries and blueberries soaking. And be sure to visit Troops Barbecue & Catering Food Truck out back for a bite.
