Join us for a Q&A and a tasting with Northern California’s top craft distillers as they present — and pour — their best bourbons, brandies, gins and whiskeys.
The list of distillers coming to serve us includes:
Dry Diggings Distillery in El Dorado Hills
Endless West in San Francisco
Gold River Distillery in Rancho Cordova
Jano Spirits in Napa
JJ Pfister in Rancho Cordova
New Alchemy Distillery in El Dorado Hills
St. George Spirits in Alameda
Sierra Nevada in Chico (they’re making a “beer-it” with St. George)
Emilia Vodka and Dorotea Gin in Roseville (made by Patricio Wise, chef of the Michelin Guide-approved restaurant Nixtaco)
We’ll also learn from the experts about:
* the Silicon Valley-style way of creating a “molecular whiskey” without any barrels or aging * the research into “whiskey fingerprinting” that can improve quality and detect fraud and counterfeit liquor * the case for growing agave plants (the base for tequila) here in the Central Valley, and more.
Tickets cover all the tastings and a selection of appetizers.
