On Saturday, May 10, 2014, sixteen of the province’s leading small-batch distilleries (plus one from the Yukon) will be bringing their gin, vodka, whisky, and other fine spirits and liqueurs to Vancouver for BC Distilled – British Columbia’s premier micro-distillery festival.

In recent years and at an accelerating pace, bottles of local artisanal spirits have been landing on (and flying off) the shelves at restaurants, bars, and liquor stores across the province. Hosted at CBC Vancouver, BC Distilled will not only provide a single-stop opportunity for craft spirit lovers to taste and appreciate a huge number of these new products, but also a chance to meet and greet the people who have been doing the crafting.

Beverages from Bittered Sling Extracts, Walter All-Natural Craft Caesar Mix, and SIP Soda will complement the wide range of spirits on offer, and attendees will also be able to enjoy bites from local restaurants such as Grain Tasting Bar, Forage, Blackbird Public House & Oyster Bar, The Distillery Bar + Kitchen, and Edible Canada.

Proudly supported by Scout Magazine and Vancouver Magazine, BC Distilled promotes locally-conscious drinking and supports the advancement of the micro-distillery industry within British Columbia.

BC Distilled is also a proud supporter of The BC Hospitality Foundation, which provides financial support for individuals within the hospitality community who are coping with a financial crisis arising from a medical condition. Partial proceeds from the festival will go directly to the BCHF.

“The BC Hospitality Foundation is an organization that positively impacts those who work in the food and beverage industry,” says Alex Hamer, Founder and Event Organizer of BC Distilled. “BC Distilled is honoured to help spread the word about the important work the BCHF does for our professional community.”

    Dragon mist vodka is the worst vodka I have ever had. I love to support our local BC distillers but this is just horrible. It is most like a bad Tequila.
