Guests enjoyed cocktails including the Gin ‘N Tonic, featuring Rhodium Forager’s Gin; the Sans Espresso Martini, featuring Rhodium Coffee & Black Walnut Vodka; the Red Gallus, with Rhodium Rhode Island Red Cranberry/Cherry Vodka; and the Free Lady in Pawtucket, featuring Rhodium Gin. Co-owned by Cathy Plourde and Kara Larson, all spirits from the Rhode Island spirits line are crafted from local fresh, farmed or foraged ingredients and are gluten-free, organic, non-GMO and vegan, with all in the lineup but one certified kosher by RI Kosher.
