Blog Post: Introducing The Plain Truth About the Best Seeds Cocktail Collection

Introducing The Plain Truth About the Best Seeds Cocktail Collection

In August 2019 Redbird Bar Director Tobin Shea introduced The Plain Truth About the Best Seeds — a cocktail collection inspired by the first growing season and harvest from the Garden at Redbird | Vibiana. Shea’s 31 cocktails were an ode to distillation, the original farm-to-table method of preserving produce, with cocktails incorporating plants grown on-site. The collection and its accompanying booklet stemmed from vintage Burpee Seeds catalogs — encouraging all to grow their own flowers, fruits, and vegetables locally or at home. The Plain Truth About the Best Seeds cocktail collection was available at Redbird through October 2019.
