Be sure to catch one of Adam’s Twelve Heizenbergs of Christmas — it’s a real treat! Hurry, as there are only seven days left in the first round. It’s quite a sight, watching Adam create and brew his infusions, and even better is sipping his delectable concoctions afterward. We had the distinct pleasure of sampling the first day, a Partridge in a Pear Tree. His talent, personality, and charm will have you going back night after night.

On Christmas Eve, the Tuck Room will be open from 11:30am to 9pm, making and serving the 12th night of Christmas Heizenberg. As a holiday gift to the city on Christmas Eve, they offer each Tuck Room guest a complimentary liquid nitrogen “aroma flight,” where you can experience the smell of each of the 12 days of Christmas Heizenbergs. If you like it, they’ll then create a bespoke cocktail with any of the 12 days of Christmas Heizenbergs (from the Liquid Library of infusions from the previous 11 nights) for $20 per cocktail.

Then beginning Christmas Day, when the Tuck Room is open from 4pm to 9pm, they’ll repeat the full 12 Days of Christmas Heizenbergs every day, ending with the 12th Day of Christmas Heizenberg on Friday, January 5th. You can sample a complimentary aroma experience of the evening’s Heizenberg and indulge in a bespoke cocktail made with any of the 12 Days of Christmas via bottles from the Heizenberg Liquid Library.
