Basil & Co. Retired

Basil & Co. was a cocktail and spirits writing and events project based in Portland, Oregon. We were active from 2010 until 2012, but are no longer maintaining the blog or running events. All content will continue to be available online indefinitely, however.

Cocktail Camp

Cocktail education and inspiration

Cocktail Camp is an annual event that’s part social gathering and part learning experience. If you enjoy finely crafted cocktails, or just want to learn more about what goes into them, this full day of cocktail education and socializing has something for you.

If you have questions about these or other projects we were involved in, please get in touch. Please note that I am no longer accepting products for review or hosting events.
