Gordon’s Liquor Store Buzzes With Conversation and Free Booze
A crowd of fifty people gathered at Gordon’s Fine Wine & Liquors in downtown Boston on a Wednesday. It was 5:30 p.m. and everyone was getting out of work in the financial district.
“It’s a great store, delicious whiskey tasting, a handsome proprietor,” said Derek Weener of his buddy, Ken Gordon. “Whiskey served with a smile, that’s what brings me here.”
What better way to get over #humpday than sipping on some free whiskey? Every Wednesday from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Gordon’s hosts a free tasting. They have other events throughout the week, like wine tastings on Tuesdays and craft beer on Thursdays.
The Gordon family opened their first liquor store in Waltham in 1934. They now own five locations, with this one being it’s first in the city of Boston. The Temple Street location is relatively new, opening just four months ago on New Years Eve.
Bill Hall is an employee at the store in Boston. He says that some of their events bring in more than 100 people.
“Don’t wait for 10 of your friends to say they’re going to come with you,” said Hall. “You don’t need a partner. Come in, say hi, taste some wine, taste some beer, have fun, because you’ll make some friends at the event.”
