Join us for a virtual tasting and art talk, with Vitae Spirits’ Founder Ian Glomski. While you enjoy your cocktail, The Fralin’s own Matthew McLendon will be discussing selected works of art from our collection. It will be a fun opportunity to relax and learn in the comfort of your own home! In addition, Vitae Spirits also will donate $10 per cocktail kit purchase to The Fralin, so your participation will directly support the museum’s work for learners of all ages.
