Amerigo to Feature Corsair Spirits at This Month's Tasting Event

Posted By on Wed, Mar 5, 2014 at 9:05 AM

I’ve told you about the fantastic wine tasting series at Amerigo before, but it’s been a while. For $15, you get (generous) tastings of four wines selected by the restaurant, along with a couple of small plates. The tastings take place on the second Tuesday (at the Cool Springs location) and Wednesday (at the Nashville location) of each month. The events are usually themed according to a region (Oregon, Napa, Italy), and the food served complements the wines. This month, however, the tasting will feature spirits from Nashville’s own Corsair Distillery.

Austin Reese from Corsair will be on hand for the event, serving up tastings of Corsair’s Vanilla Bean Vodka, a Gin & Tonic, the "Ryemageddon" Manhattan and their Triple Smoke Whiskey. As with the wine tastings, it’s just $15 per person, including heavy hors d'oeuvres. I can’t think of another place where you can get four drinks plus food for just $15. And the Corsair spirits are wonderful. If you haven’t had a chance to try them out, this is the perfect opportunity. The Corsair tasting at the Cool Springs location will be this Tuesday, March 11, from 6 until 8 p.m.; the tasting at the Nashville location on West End will be Wednesday, March 12, at the same time.

Also, you can check out the information on the Amerigo Chef Dinners.

The next dinners will be the week of March 24 at both locations. The chef dinners feature a specially prepared five-course menu (usually released about a week before the event) with wine or cocktail pairings for $45 per person. Another really fantastic deal. For reservations (which are recommended), call 615-320-1740.

Find out about all the special events at Amerigo on the Events page on their website.

Corsair Tastings at Amerigo
