We are a collective of thirsty revivalists
On May 13, 1806, The Balance and Columbian Repository printed the first definition of the word cocktail.
A simple concoction that would inspire a profound idea. An idea that the intentional mixture of fiery spirits could be tempered into something greater than its individual parts. A craft was born and brought about an era now lost to time. The notes of Ragtime pianos once accompanied cocktails in golden bar-rooms, where bartenders held court as bona fide artisans, celebrated personalities and connoisseurs of life.
We are collectif 1806...
Much like that idea of long ago, Collectif 1806 believes that the intentional mixture of our collective passion and talent can be tempered into something greater. A new era. Today, we are gathering like-minded individuals over a cocktail and the common pursuit of reviving this time honored tradition.
