It's no secret that bourbon gets the stingiest of after-hours destination corporate meeting attendees excited about the event. We have found a unique twist that freezes the drink and pairs it with unique elements like caviar, creme fraiche and boiled egg.

Look at it thi...

Your US-based destination corporate meeting attendees don't have to travel across the pond to play at "Saint Andrews." We have one less than 30 minutes from Manhattan.
