      MCC Alert! Sippin’ NY State Crafty-Stylie with Tuthilltown’s Ralph Erenzo

One week to the day later, I’ll get to see Mr. Ralph Erenzo, distiller and partner at Tuthilltown Spirits, again and sip on his lovely small-batch bourbons and such at the kick-off Manhattan Cocktail Classic Gala at the New York Public Library.
