Each month Davio’s selects a local distillery to join us for a night of exclusive cocktails and food pairings. This event will be hosted in partnership with Orange County’s first craft distillery, Blinking Owl, with special guest and spirits enthusiast, Andrew Aoun.
As one of the most unique distilleries on the West Coast, Blinking Owl produces Vodka, Gin, several types of Whiskey and the Scandinavian spirit, Aquavit. The Founder, Brian Christenson, had a bootlegging great-grandfather, Fred P. Armbrust. Fred had a still on his dairy farm hidden in the basement behind secret passageways. He would covertly provide his local farmers with his “good spirits”. Brian’s dream is to carry on Fred’s passion by providing “good spirits” to our very own neighborhood, legally, of course!
In addition to the specialty crafted cocktails, Davio’s Executive Chef, Istvan Toth will be preparing a selection of unique bar bites to pair perfectly with the evening’s libations.
The Spirits Pop-Up Series: Blinking Owl event will take place on Thursday, May 23rd from 5:00pm to 8:00pm at Davio's Irvine. Reservations are recommended by calling 949.477.4810.
