Celebrating Virginia’s handcrafted spirits, more than 20 Virginia distillers will gather at the Roanoke City Market in Roanoke, Va. on Saturday, Sept. 16 for the 2nd Annual Virginia Craft Spirits Showcase.
“Virginia is the birthplace of American Spirits and judging by the number of awards and the continued growth in sales, today’s distillers would make their forefathers proud,” remarked Gareth Moore, Virginia Distillers Association president and CEO of the Virginia Distillery Company. “We’re building on the success of last year’s Virginia Craft Spirits Showcase, and the assembled group of craft and artisan distillers will put Virginia’s burgeoning spirits industry front and center for quality spirits production!”
Guests will have the opportunity to attend distiller seminars and learn from experts. The 2nd Annual Battle of the Bartenders will also showcase local mixologists demonstrating their creativity with cocktails in front of a judging panel.
“There is no better place to taste the best that Virginia distilled spirits have to offer than the 2nd Annual Showcase,” exclaimed Steve Beyer, president of Leisure Media 360, who has returned to co-host the event. “Experts, artisans, creative cocktailians all at the crossroads of Roanoke’s Historic Market District will combine to make it a unique day that is not to be missed.”
The 2nd Annual Virginia Craft Spirits Showcase will run from 2–6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16. VIP ticket holders will be able to gain access to the event beginning at noon. For more info on the event, including ticket prices and participating distillers and vendors, please visit here.
