Distillers Festival Is The Place To Taste Craft Spirits
Winemakers often bring their bottles to wine tasting events introducing people to their brands but for craft distillers the opportunities to dazzle are fewer. But distillers are in the spotlight at the Distillers Festival to be held October 24 and 25 in Portland, Oregon. The festival brings together over 70 artisan distillers from across the country for tastings of the best vodkas, rums, whiskies, brandies and more esoteric spirits. The event takes place at the Bossanova Ballroom and will include cocktail and food pairings, educational seminars and a mixology contest. A $10 one-day pass gets you three taster tickets.
