Brides and grooms-to-be can now get their wedding cocktails designed by local crafts spirit company Art in the Age, which recently launched a custom cocktails program for any nuptial-related events.

Mixologists with Art in the Age will work with couples in their Old City tasting room to create signature cocktails. Couples can sample the company’s spirits — such as ginger-quince cordial, apricot-infused rye, or maple-spiked apple brandy — and test flavor combinations with various mixers. Custom cocktails could be totally new, or they could be riffs on existing Art in the Age cocktail recipes, like the Lo-Fi 50/50 Manhattan made with Lo-Fi Sweet Vermouth, Kinsey Rye Whiskey, bitters and cherry; or the Quincy mule, made with the ginger-quince cordial, Powderhorn vodka, lime, and ginger beer.

When the cocktail is done, couples receive a comprehensive plan for replicating it: the recipe, spirits, mixers, and garnishes, along with detailed instructions to pass along to bartending staff.

Art in the Age also offers cocktail classes, tastings, and demonstrations for other wedding-related events, like bachelorette or bachelor parties. Those events start at around $60 per person for a 25-person group. Pricing for the custom cocktail packages varies, an AITA representative said. For more information about the custom cocktails or private events, go to artintheage.com.
