Fire & Ice: Barrel Making + Ice Carving hosted by Fernet-Branca

October 27, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Go inside the artisanal ice and barrel making world with two industry professionals!

Venture to the industrial workspace of Ice Sculpture Philly and Anthony Barrels for a behind-the-scenes look into the wonderful world of Fire & Ice. Peter Slavin of Fear No Ice and Ice Sculpture Philly will walk you through an ice carving demonstration to showcase his ice craft. Each attendee will get their turn to carve an ice glass that will be used to sample some refreshing Peroni.

Next we will move the party over to Philadelphia’s only cooperage in the same warehouse space. Ryan Ebner of Anthony Barrels will demonstrate the barrel making process from beginning until the charring of the barrel. This interactive tour will finish with a sampling of some Fernet-Branca offerings. The whole Fire & Ice adventure is sponsored by Fernet-Branca and free to USBG members or active industry professionals in the city and surrounding suburbs.

Founded in 2015, Anthony Barrel Company’s mission is to make barrels of any size and flavor for local distillers and in turn, Philadelphia’s whiskey crowd. From a small space in a woodshop in Philadelphia’s Port Richmond neighborhood, ABC experimented with both old and new methods of making barrels, resulting in a unique approach to making a product that has been made for thousands of years.

At their studio, located at 840 North 40th Street in Philadelphia, Icesculpturephilly.com’s team of ice artists design and produce sculptures, ice bars, luges and more. Led by lead sculptor and owner Peter Slavin, our studio team has created concepts for ice sculptures and festivals throughout the world. Whether it’s a personalized monogram sculpture for a wedding, or a custom ice luge for a charity event, Ice Sculpture Philly can create a sparkling, dazzling piece of ice art for any occasion.
