David Flaherty joined the New York Cork Report team nearly two years ago, serving as our primary “man on the ground” in Manhattan.

Adding spirits and cider coverage here is something I’ve wanted to do for some time and — lucky for me — they are both things that David is knowledgeable and passionate about.

Keep an eye out for David’s first piece soon.
