Great American Distillers Festival
Over a decade, the Great American Distillers Festival has assembled a stable of craft spirit makers willing to share their creations and knowledge with like-minded people. While sampling vodka, whiskey, brandy, gin, rum, and more—often precisely made in small batches—visitors engage with artisans from a number of notable distillers, which have included Bull Run Distilling Company, New Deal Distillery, and Tito's Handmade Vodka. Seminars, meanwhile, invite amateurs to learn about new techniques, and tours of nearby distilleries provide still more insight.
