Relish the chance to experience over 45 distilleries and over 150 unique spirits at a more intimate tasting event, where each table is backed by a direct representative of the distillery. Craft highlights include Clear Creek, Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, Mississippi River, New Holland, Ransom, Rogue Spirits, and St. George. Chicagoland is well represented by Koval and fellow locals North Shore, FEW Spirits, Quincy Street, and Tailwinds. Our Michigan friends from Journeyman will also be in attendance.Attendees are promised "all the tastings you can handle, complimentary hors d'oeuvres, and unbeatable intimacy with each distillery." Unbeatable intimacy? Woof ~ I might have trouble explaining that one at home.
Additional distilleries scheduled to be on hand include Heaven Hill, Death's Door, Quince and Apple, Four Roses, Square One, Yahara Bay, and more. General admission tickets are $55. For an extra $10, the VIP pass will get you in an hour earlier than general admission. Tickets, events, and more information are available at Distill America.
