Nick Korn

Job TitlePrincipal


Nick Korn is a life-long student and self-identified nerd; with a background in anthropology, and an addiction to travel, he brings an academic lens to eating and drinking the world over. A dedicated professional in the bar industry in Boston for over a decade, he has pursued study—both in the classroom and in the field—into the ways that food and beverage tie into larger themes of human experience. A fierce advocate for his community, Nick currently owns and manages OFFSITE, a boutique experiential marketing and strategy firm focused on changing paradigms in the liquor industry. Nick believes that education is the cornerstone of the elevation of this industry; In addition to teaching at bars, conferences and festivals around the country, he manages and co-teaches Grand Ten Distilling Academy, a four week, hands-on, chemistry-driven distillation course for bartenders currently in it's 12th session. Despite his intense traveling and teaching schedule, Nick self-identifies as a bartender and isn't ready to be put out to pasture yet: in any given week you can find Nick opening High Lives, or stirring Negroni behind his friends' bars.
