The significance of herbs in Airlie’s organic garden continues to grow


At Airlie we have been cultivating produce, flowers, and herbs in our on-site organic garden for 20 years. Founded in 1998 as our most delicious commitment to the environment, the garden has been providing the best possible ingredients for our kitchens long before the phrase “farm-to-table” became restaurateur canon.

Season after season, the garden has become about so much more than food. Our community garden plots are buzzing with area neighbors, we’ve welcomed new animals (and bees!), hosted events, and utilized every opportunity to educate our guests and visitors about the importance of sustainable agriculture.

Mother Nature has been holding back on spring with a late-March snow and colder than average temperatures. For that reason, the timing doesn’t feel quite right to be introducing our Spring Signature Cocktails. On second thought, if we start serving them anyway, we might be able to convince Mother Nature to speed up the arrival of spring.

Raising the Bar at Harry’s: Taylor Malinowski pours creativity into every cocktail she serves

Like an artist in her studio, Taylor Malinowski is in her element behind the bar, where she loves to create flavorful compositions. Taylor’s palette of ingredients includes much of what you’d expect — rum, vodka, grenadine, etc. — but also some less expected choices. 

“I’d love to get my hands on some fresh lavender, or hibiscus,” she said. “There’s so much I can do with those two ingredients.”

Fortunately, spring is just around the corner and she’ll soon have a wide variety of herbs and other ingedients from Airlie’s organic garden to choose from. We can’t wait to see what she comes up with!
