Quail Hunt Cocktail Roundup
With our 4th Annual Quail Hunt right around the corner, everything is abuzz around Ledbury HQ. The Quail Hunt is our most anticipated event of the year — an opportunity for us to connect with customers, friends and partners near and far to share great food, drink, music and even a s’more by the bonfire. We couldn’t be more excited to have our friends from Bulleit in town for this year’s event. Bulleit has graciously partnered with us on the Quail Hunt to bring a bar setup that’s not to be missed. Three of our most well-respected local bartender friends will be serving up Bulleit cocktails at the helm of Bulleit’s infamous woody. For those of you who aren’t attending the event, don’t let the FOMO get you down. We put together a roundup of our Quail Hunt drinks so you can cozy up with a cocktail and watch the #LedburyQuailHunt posts roll through on Instagram.
