In old naval yards and underneath bridges, in pre-war warehouses and nestled in scenic countrysides, an American movement is growing and exciting back bars across the world. Whether it’s heirloom, locally-sourced grains, imaginative recipes, radical aging concepts, or just a throwback to classical distilling methods, craft distillers are pushing the envelope in the spirits industry. With literally hundreds of distilleries now operating within the US, innovation is advancing at a startling pace. This trend, although thriving, is still young and burgeoning. While the segment will continue to develop and find its niche, some cutting-edge brands are already making waves in the industry with inventive new products that have captured the attention of bartenders, writers and critics everywhere.

The Liquid Projects is proud to bring together some of American craft distilling’s finest veterans, along with the fresh spirit of new, up-and-coming distillers, for an exclusive tasting event. Enjoy a diverse selection of craft-made spirits from around the country and meet the people behind the brands that are creating a stir in the world of small batch, artisanal distilling.

Participating distilleries: Balcones Distilling, Corsair Distillery, Glencairn Glass, Middle West Spirits, New Holland Brew, Treaty Oak Distilling, Tuthilltown Spirits, Smooth Ambler Spirits, Westland Distillery and more.
