celebrating the release of topo's CAROLINA SPICED rum
Join us on Thursday, September 28th for a New Orleans-style soiree to debut TOPO Distillery's newest product: rum! Like the rest of our spirits, our Carolina Spiced Rum is hand-crafted, pot-distilled and USDA-certified organic. Made from organic molasses and cane juice and bursting with flavor from spices such as orange peel, vanilla, peppercorn, allspice, clove, and nutmeg, it's the perfect base for any rum cocktail.
In light of the tragedy in Texas, Florida & the Caribbean, we will also be donating a portion of the proceeds to Hurricane Harvey & Irma relief efforts. In addition, we will be hosting a raffle for a TOPO goodie basket which guests will be eligible to enter if they bring a receipt for a charitable donation made to any organization working to help with disaster relief.
Top of the Hill Restaurant & Brewery first opened our doors on September 5th, 1996 - the same day that Hurricane Fran swept through Chapel Hill. We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate our 21st birthday than by drinking hurricanes, and with our rum newly available, we can do just that! The party will feature live music, Cajun-inspired small bites, rum cocktails and fun door prizes & giveaways, plus all the TOPO beer you already know and love.
Tickets are $50 per person for adults 21+ only. Purchase of a ticket gets you admission to the party from 8-11PM, 2 drink tickets good for beer/wine/cocktails plus one complimentary cocktail on arrival, access to the hors d'oeuvres buffet, and an entry for our door prize drawing. Purchase your tickets at www.thetopofthehill.com/hurricanes-over-franklin today!
The menu will include small bites with a New Orleans-style twist, with items such as: Baked Oysters with Braised Leeks & Tasso Hollandaise, Fried Catfish "Po-Boy" Sliders with Low Country Remoulade, Beignets with Carolina Spiced Rum & Chocolate Sauce, plus much more!
