It’s no secret that liquor is helping a lot of people endure the challenges and frustrations of a multi-month shelter-in-place order. For experienced drinkers—and we mean that in the nicest way possible—there are still plenty of minor annoyances to overcome; access to quality booze, for instance, or all of the necessary supplies that ought to accompany it. Even before the quarantine began, this was the struggle that inspired entertainment attorney Miriam Yoo to open Flask & Field: “A modern destination for the discovery of wine, spirits, art and design.”
As DTLA’s premiere female-founded (and operated) source for liquor and adjacent goods, Flask & Field had already begun making its mark, even before quarantine. Their distinct offerings include curating collections of wine and spirits for everything from parties to private pantries, as well as a multi-tiered (and multi-perk) wine club with four new eclectic, local wines available for members every month. Other items featured at Flask & Field are box kits of cocktail supplies—including specialized kits for events like Mother’s Day and more—elegant decanters, mixologist equipment, and so much more. While these are still for sale during quarantine, Flask & Field has also come up with new ways that they can keep at-home sippers engaged with their products.
On Flask & Field’s Facebook page, they have begun to host a number of live events that bring viewers together over a bottle of rosé. One recent event was a wine-pairing party, led by Yoo, which offered audiences both a chance to learn about the best snacks for eating with certain beverages, and a casual discussion of life under quarantine — particularly, how to stay sane with the help of a well-mixed drink. Other live-stream events include professional wine tastings/lessons, spotlight interviews with wine club members, and even (virtual) visits from unbelievable guests like Academy Award-winning actress Diane Keaton. Social media keeps Flask & Field connected to their following of Angeleno tastemakers, but also helps them express the uniqueness of their offerings in a personable, authentic way.
