About BC Distilled:
BC Distilled was founded in 2013 by Alex Hamer with an intent to highlight and celebrate British Columbia’s artisan distilleries. The local spirits movement was on the verge of massive growth due to changes in provincial legislation. In order to raise awareness for this burgeoning industry, the first BC Distilled Festival was launched in 2014. The event is unique to Canada because only local spirits made by small-batch producers are exhibited.
