Gray's on Main Opens up 'Vintage Spirits Series' Classes to the Public



Gray's on Main in Franklin opened with a members-only section on the third floor which they mysteriously described as "The Society." Members of this enclave had access to a private bar and were invited to evenings of complimentary cocktails and educational classes about the restaurant’s bar program which they called the "Vintage Spirits Series."

These popular events were too good to keep to themselves, so the owners of Gray's have decided to expand enrollment to the rest of us, starting with classes on March 6 and 13. Mixologist Jon Yeager will lead the classes which will emphasize the French beverage program that he has established at the bar. Here's the syllabus:

On March 6, participants will learn about and taste Marquis de Montesquiou Armagnac — a brand that’s featured in only one other spot in the country. Interested individuals will gain an in-depth look at the particular distilling process, the brand’s history and its different expressions. Guests will also taste the brand in context with GRAY’S popular Fox Hollow cocktail, and through other handmade recipes. Though Yeager will host the evening, Ryan Kohl of ImpEx Beverages Inc., will spearhead the event.

On March 13, Yeager will provide extensive samplings of various French and Italian wines, and guests will learn about each brand’s particular process and history from an Athens distributor and expert.

To reserve your spot for either or both seminars, call Gray's at (615) 435-3603. To receive a sneak-peek of GRAY’S bar program, watch the restaurant’s online cocktail tutorial series at
