One of our favorite customers in Dallas, popular chef and restaurateur Janice Provost of Parigi Restaurant located in the hot/hip Uptown area returns to the James Beard House Monday, June 26th. The dinner already is sold out – a House record!
Her “American in Paris” dinner will speak to her Parigi Restaurant’s French Bistro with a little bit of Italian and American thrown in.

Be the first to experience Glass Vodka’s limited edition release Selkirk.
Rested in a charred oak barrel for over a year, Selkirk presents a taste profile of vanilla, caramel and oak with the finesse of Glass Vodka. This is a very limited release, only 1000 bottles have been produced and will only be sold at the Glass Vodka Boutique in Seattle, WA. All bottles are hand numbered and signed by Ian MacNeil, our founder.
The name and our coat of arms on the bottle, pays homage to Ian’s homeland of Scotland and his beloved Labrador, Selkirk.
Come visit us and be one of the first to indulge in this new experience.

As you walk into the posh new wine cellar in the newly remodeled Fred Meyer in Bellevue, WA, you might think you are walking into an art gallery. Front and center in the new wood lined space you are surprised to encounter the dramatic art piece, Escape Velocity by Harry Pollitt. This one-of-a-kind experience is shown in partnership exclusively with the Traver Glallery in Seattle. Surrounding the piece, also exclusively, is another art form, the elegant and exquisite Glass Vodka. From the crystal bottle who’s very form was inspired by the Glass Art Movement to what’s inside, the clean, modern spirit conceived from an artist’s passion. Stop in, take a break and drink in the culture in the room.

And the Glass Vodka dinner party for 10 people at the distillery went for $4500. This is a very worthy event that benefits our Seattle community and we are very honored to be a part of it.
