Bottles of local artisanal spirits have been appearing on shelves at restaurants, bars, and government and private liquor stores at an overwhelming pace. Hosted at CBC Vancouver, BC Distilled provides a single-stop opportunity for craft spirit lovers to taste a variety of these products. 

In addition, beverages from Bittered Sling Extracts, Walter All-Natural Craft Caesar Mix and SIP Soda will complement a wide range of spirits. Attendees will also enjoy bites from top local restaurants including 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 health or 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.
