BC Distilled Takes Place April 4 – Early Bird Tickets Now Available

BC Distilled Returns Saturday, April 4

Early bird tickets now available for Canada’s premier artisanal distillery event

BC Distilled, the largest spirits event in Canada devoted exclusively to local artisan distilleries, returns Saturday, April 4, at the Croatian Cultural Centre. Tickets are now on sale!

This year’s festival – the seventh annual edition – features appearances from 40 of our province’s favourite distilleries. All participating distilleries will be pouring samples of their product. Plus, attendees can check out the Legacy Liquor pop-up shop – it has the best selection of BC spirits anywhere in the province – for one night only.

In addition to the main event on Saturday, fans of local spirits will have opportunities to sample at additional events in the week leading up to the festival:

BC Whisky Tasting hosted by Davin de Kergommeaux

BC Distilled is proud to host a BC whisky tasting on Wednesday, April 1, led by Davin de Kergommeaux, a drinks writer, public speaker and spirits judge, who is recognized as the world expert on Canadian whisky. de Kergommeaux will also be launching his new book,The Definitive Guide to Canadian Distilleries (co-written with Blair Phillips) at BC Distilled. Whisky tasting attendees may purchase signed copies of the book in advance of this exclusive event – at a reduced price. The whisky tasting will take place at the Beaumont Studios.

Distillers Dinner at Forage

Our 4th annual Distillers Dinner, at Downtown Vancouver’s acclaimed Forage restaurant, takes place on Friday, April 3. Executive Chef Welbert Choi will feature six cocktail and spirit samples from BC distilleries, paired with six terroir-based courses. An optional cocktail reception preceding the dinner will be hosted at next door’s Timber Gastropub, with a seventh distillery providing cocktails.

“Every year we’re seeing more variety and higher-quality spirits produced in BC, which is gratifying to see,” says founder Alex Hamer. “BC Distilled showcases the world-class capabilities of our province’s artisan distilleries. Whether it’s your first time attending or you’re a veteran, you’ll find something new and amazing to try.”
