Independent Spirits Expo

On Tuesday, September 30, independent distillers set up shop at the Hilton hotel to display and sample their small-batch, artisanal wares for the third annual Independent Spirits Expo. The exhibitors come from all over the world, and include Grappa Candolini of Italy alongside Indiana's Redemption Rye bourbon. Meanwhile, Uncouth Vermouth will show off its Brooklyn-based martini companions as Traverse City Whiskey Company struts its stuff with its eponymous spirit.
