Longevity Crossroads

A Special Invitation to our Modernist  Community
Sunday / June 25

3:30 - 6:30pm

Join fellow entrepreneurs, investors, and leaders on Sunday June 25th (330pm to 630pm) at Nourse Theater in San Francisco to explore a world at the "Longevity Crossroads:the Future of Business, Health, Business and Society"

The current health industry is helping people live longer and stronger lives without curing aging. The resulting rise of global median age will significantly reshape the human landscape. Meanwhile, an emerging group of scientists are hunting for ways to defer the aging process. We are not adequately prepared for the opportunities and risks of either future.

George Papandreou, the former Prime Minister of Greece, will speak to the global future of a post-aging world. The word Gerontology comes from the Greek word Geron, "Old Man". His father and grandfather were both Prime Ministers of Greece, and his daughter is a scientist in aging research.

Other speakers include:

Liz Blackburn, Nobel Laureate https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Blackburn

Pinchas Cohen, Dean, USC Davis School of Gerontology https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinchas_Cohen

Laura Carstensen, founder, Stanford Center for Longevity https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_L._Carstensen

Participation is free. Friends & family, including children, are welcome.

Whisky Business ~ Highland Park 18

This Weeks Whisky Business
Going back to Scotland and paying a little visit to an old friend:

Highland Park 18

"A perfect expression of harmony, complexity and refinement, VIKING PRIDE combines honey sweetness with delicious hints of cherries wrapped in chocolate, and subtle top notes of aromatic peat smoke.
Named ‘best spirit in the world’ in the Spirit Journal, on two separate occasions, the intense balance of the flavours found in VIKING PRIDE owes everything to our five traditional keystones of production, honoured for over 200 years. Slow-burning, aromatic peat from Hobbister Moor; hand turned floor maltings, Sherry seasoned European oak casks, cool maturation in our temperate island climate and a long and unhurried harmonisation process. Like our founder, Magnus Eunson, we share our Viking ancestors’ commitment to skilled craftsmanship as well as their proud, independent spirit."

-Highland Park

As always, join us for a little education on Highland Park 18, as well as tasting why Viking Pride is the definition of Highland Park 18!

Tasting from 6pm-8pm or until bottle is finished!!

Thursdays Taste ~ Clase Azul Tequila!!!

Thursdays Taste ~ Clase Azul Tequila!!!

 

This Thursdays Taste is Tequila

3 Small Reasons why Clase Azul is Clase Azul.

1. Clase Azul Tequilas are produced exclusively in Mexico in a local bottling facility using indigenous ingredients and materials.
2. Inspired by traditional Mexican family values, we chose to produce all of our products in a small village that continues to thrive with our brands.
3. Each bottle of Clase Azul is a work of art. Hand sculpted and individually painted, no one bottle is exactly alike.

All Clase Azul tequilas are produced from organic agaves that are grown to maturity for at least nine years before careful harvesting. The agave is slow-cooked in traditional brick ovens for 72 hours and then fermented using a proprietary yeast strain which enhances the complex characteristics of our tequila.

Join us in a little education on this Tequila and taste why people talk about this Spirit.

Black Art 5 pre-release party

THE FIFTH INCARNATION OF THIS NOW LEGENDARY SINGLE MALT IS THE FIRST BY HEAD DISTILLER ADAM HANNETT. AS ENIGMATIC AS EVER, THE COMPOSITION OF CASKS REMAINS A MYSTERY.

The Modernist family would love you to join us in helping Bruichladdich launch the fifth incarnation of their legendary Black Art Single Malt.

‘Bruichladdich is an award-winning distillery employing generations of distilling knowledge and the prociple of minimal intervention. 

Built in 1881 on the wild Scottish island of Islay, [the] distillery still uses the original Victorian equipment to create a range of single malt whiskies that are trickle distilled, matured and bottled solely on Islay by a skilled team of 78 men and women.

Bruichladdich implements revolutionary, modern interpretations of time-honored ieas and challenges the comfortable conventions of a whisky establishment.  Rejecting the onset of modern automation and homogenization, [the] Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, only considers production methods that place the quality of liquid above everything else.’

Black Art 5 is the result of Hannett’s secret recipe.  The only fact that is known: the youngest barrel in this blend is from 1992!  Whisky Ambassador, Trent Simpson, will be here to talk about his experience working at the distillery and explain more about the unique line up.  Come experience this once in a lifetime Single Malt alongside its Bruichladdich brethren – Port Charlotte and the Islay Barley, in addition to a special cocktail created by Carlo Splendorini.

Any members who wish to fill their bottle locker with this special bottle, will receive a discounted, pre-order rate.  If interested in attending, we ask that you RSVP so we have enough bottles to pour throughout the tasting.

Whisky Business ~ Glenfiddich in the House

Cheers you Modernists! This Week for Whisky Business we are featuring Glenfiddich and their Experimental Series Spirits to sample.

Starting at 6pm till 8pm
Come Mingle with Lauren, Members, Guests, and get your Network with Whisky Business!

Spotlight on Lauren Magboo

Modernist is pleased to welcome Lauren Magboo as the host for Whisky Business on Tuesday, May 16.  That evening, she will be teaming up with her good friend, Kate Irwin, from William Grant & Sons to feature the newest release of the Glendfiddich IPA and XX - Experimental Project.  

Lauren moved to San Francisco from Los Angeles three years ago after a 14-year career in talent, event and consumer lifestyle PR. Her former clients include Skateboarder/Entrepreneur Rob Dyrdek, Jonathan Clay from Jamestown Revival, Hollywood Life events and many more. She most recently helped open SPiN San Francisco, Susan Sarandon's ping pong social club, and we are now celebrating her new position as the Member Liaison & Club Events Director at Wingtip in the Financial District. While working at SPiN, 

Lauren met Kate who introduced her to her new liquor of choice, Glenfiddich (15 Year being her favorite).

A little about the featured pours:

Glenfiddich IPA

"In our first groundbreaking experiment, Malt Master Brian Kinsman has proven that traditional whisky casks can still be seasoned in a pioneering way. Collaborating with a local Speyside craft brewer, Brian created a bold and zesty India Pale Ale beer to imbue our rich oak casks with extra hoppy notes. The experiment resulted in the first single malt Scotch whisky ever finished in craft India Pale Ale casks. 

Our collaborators had a momentous task ahead. First, they had to design and create three separate brews of different strengths – freshly brewed India Pale Ale craft beer that could rest in whisky casks, later to be used to finish the Experimental Series variants.  Back at our Distillery, Brian secretly kept up to nine barrels seasoning at any one time, hidden from view in his warehouse. He varied the time the craft beer spent penetrating deep into the oak casks, before filling the casks back up with whisky to see what new flavours would be revealed.It was a lengthy, experimental process but they finally decided on their favourite: Brew 2. The science of seasoning, beer strength and the time the whisky spent being finished all had a remarkable effect on the final, distinctive flavour.  What began as a quirky idea had quickly turned into an intensive experiment. Not only had Brian pioneered a new malt, but he had created a new craft beer in the process."

Glenfiddich XX

Our second experiment of the series took place privately at our Conval warehouse. Shrouded in secrecy, malt Master Brian Kinsman invited 20 whisky experts from around the world to select any expression of their choosing from the thousands of stacked casks. The final 20 chosen malts, matured in everything from port pipes to virgin bourbon barrels, have created an unusual, innovative and unexpected whisky, one that has exceeded even our expectations.

"The whisky experts were led to our Conval Warehouse, an impressive building, home to 1000s of traditionally stacked casks. Each expert was given free reign to explore the warehouse and select any cask that intrigued them. It was a long task, but after searching every dark corner, each whisky expert made their final decision.  The final 20 malts represent some of the most astonishing whiskies under our care. From aged malts matured in port pipes to ancient sherry butts and virgin oak bourbon casks, each malt lent a unique personality to the final expression.  Brian married the 20 exceptional malts together, only releasing the final expression once he was completely happy with the liquid. But he was more than happy with the final result: this small batch vatting defied even his expectations."

Mark Trang & Modernist ~ Cinqo de Moderno

It's that time of the year again, the 5th of March aka... Cinco de Mayo!

Little Background...

Originally March 5th started as a remembrance of Mexico being Victorious against the French in the Franco-Mexican War from 1861-1867. Cinco de Mayo isn't as popular of a holiday as it is in the states, but we can say that in the states it has become more of a celebration of culture / community / heritage. 

Celebrate Cinqo de Moderno with us at Modernist and our Lovely Host for the Evening:

Mark Trang ~ Core Member

Featuring a few Concoctions to portray the Flavors of Mexican Spirits!

1. Mexican Standoff ~ 18

Warriors Whisky Business ~ Japanese Whisky Belgium Press

This Weeks Whisky Business

Warriors Game on the Big Screen + Whisky Business

The work weeks just beginning...
So lets start Tuesday night off right with us @ Modernist!
Come Drink and Socialize with our Members, Guests, Friends & Family. 

We all know how big of an influence Nikka Whisky has made an influence on the Whisky World, but just to step it up another notch, we decided to combine Nikka Coffey Malt with our Belgium Press making...

Siberian Rose & Hibiscus Nikka Coffey Malt Whisky infusion.
 

The Belgium Press
What's so special about it?

A Few Fun Facts:

1. It is a process that uses full Immersion (Constant state of infusion with the Japanese Whisky, Siberian Rose & Hibiscus.)

2. Vacuum process part of the Press insures that every possible soluble has been extracted (gets all the Flavors possible out of the infusion)

3. Constant level of heat, insures an even distribution and control of the Infusion.

 

Tasting from 6pm to 8pm
