What: Gem&Bolt Launch Party
The details: Earlier this month, locals gathered at east side watering hole Whisler's to celebrate the Austin arrival of a new liquor brand. Founded by childhood friends and artists AdrinAdrina and Elliott Coon, Gem&Bolt is a unique mezcal from Oaxaca, Mexico, which has exclusively selected Austin for its U.S. launch.
Guests were treated to special cocktails and received an intimate tasting experience in the upstairs bar, Mezcaleria Tobala. Carlos Heredia provided the soundtrack for the evening, which was complemented by artful mementos and unique altar bars scattered around the space.
Who: AdrinAdrina, Alton Dulaney, Carlos Heredia, Michelle Teague, Jane Claire Hervey, Lorna Leedy, Jenna Herrington, Kelly Helms, Michael Henderson, Mike Holp, Adi Anand, Emily Hatfield, Jennifer Sinski, Gigi Mao, and Cheyenne Doerr.
