TOTC: The Sexton Midnight Club

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

During Tales of the Cocktail, French Quarter restaurant Cane & Table held an invite only party known as The Sexton Midnight Club.

All the way from County Antrim, The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey is marked by the soul of Ireland.

An innovative and perfectly balanced Irish single malt whiskey. The Sexton is rich in hue, approachable in taste and memorable in character.

Tasting notes include dried fruit, honeycomb, and nuts.

Created by Alex Thomas, one of the few female master blenders in the industry, The Sexton is made from 100% Irish malted barley and is triple distilled for smoothness in copper pot stills.

The spirit is then aged for perfection in former Oloroso sherry casks, sourced from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain.

The second iteration of The Sexton Midnight Club took place on July 17, where The Sexton was mixed into cocktails, and masterfully paired with locally sourced hors d’oeuvres.

The late-night experience was in honor of the restless souls who dedicate their days and nights to delivering the very best food & drink – The Sexton Midnight Club offered a place for industry members to come together and eat and drink well when typically there is nowhere to go during the late hours of the night.

Whiskey cocktails were created by Sother Teague of Amor y Amargo and Damon Boelte of Grand Army Bar.

And the custom late-night menu was crafted by celebrated Chef Alfredo Nogueira.
