Tonight you can stop by The Knock Back on NE Alberta for a drink — and get your holiday shopping done at the same time.
That's because Luke Plant and Daniel Osborne, bartenders (Expatriate and Teardrop) and proprietors of the Bull in China bar gear shop on N. Williams, will be on hand to mix drinks and sell their wares from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The cocktails will feature local spirits from Aria Gin and Dystopia Vodka, and the duo will be raffling off bar gear from the shop, too.
Bull in China's signature item is the Sellwood-made, hammered-glass mixing vessels that the duo designed themselves. So far they're only available at the shop (or the pop-up at The Knock Back tonight), though there will eventually be online sales. The shop also sells stylish cocktail tools, including mallets, jiggers, bitters, books, and vintage glassware.
