Seattle has all these amazing new distilleries popping up, and nowhere to check them out – until now. Join us on June 15th at PROOF: The Washington Distillers Festival, the first-ever flagship tasting event for the Washington Distillers Guild, and spend an evening learning your local spirits.
Held at The Foundry by Herban Feast (formerly Urban Enoteca) in Seattle’s SoDo District, the new event will feature tastings of locally made whiskey, gin, bourbon, vodka and other craft spirits from more than 40 Northwest distilleries, plus food and a soundtrack by KEXP’s Greg Vandy.
In addition to pours from the state’s many craft distilleries, attendees will have the chance to enjoy select bites from more than a dozen local restaurants, discover a new favorite cocktail made by top Seattle bartenders, and meet the craftsmen and women in exclusive “Meet the Makers” chats in an intimate on-site barrel room. Bottles will also be on sale throughout the event, letting attendees take the PROOF experience home with them.
Tickets are on sale now for $45 at PROOFWashington.org, which also features a list of participating distilleries and restaurants, plus other event features. There are two available sessions – evening, from 6-9 pm, and a newly announced afternoon session from 1-4 p.m.
