For us, stepping aboard Ladona is about an experience: sailing, camaraderie, the beautiful Maine coastline, food, wine, music—all in an authentic and unscripted way. In our newest specialty cruise, explore the art of bar craft, taking fresh, handmade ingredients and creating an experience worth imbibing.
What can I expect on this cruise?
We're teaming up with Lara Nixon of Bad Dog Bar Craft to share her knowledge and expertise. Throughout the cruise, you’ll learn the art of cocktail making using fresh and unique ingredients. Lara will create several beverages throughout each day, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
Once we’ve anchored for the evening, we might gather for a demonstration, chat about the history of specific drinks, or demystify terms like negroni, shrubs, and bitters. With summer weather, you’ll likely be sipping away at a refreshing cocktail, while cooler fall evenings may call for a hot toddy bar.
What are the Bar Craft sailing dates?
