The Cocktails at Gleason's are as carefully crafted as the food we serve. We've tested (a very difficult job) and tweaked our cocktail list to get every drink right. All the ingredients, many house-made, house-infused, or barrel-aged, are measured out to the quarter ounce. Our bartenders work from recipes, much like chefs. Consistency matters.
Our barrel-aging program continues to grow. At the present time we have four 5 liter white oak charred barrels. The first use for all of our oak barrels is a different white dog whiskey, then subsequent uses will classic cocktails (Negroni, Americano, Manhattan) and our house bitters.
We also have an infusion jar at Gleason's that we use to blend vodka with fruit (fresh, poached, roasted) and herbs. Like our kitchen, our infusions roll with the seasons. The infusion and barrel-aged cocktails are produced in limited batches, so stay tuned to this website and our facebook, twitter and instagram pages for cocktail events.
