About Independent Spirits Expo
Independent distillers, bottlers, importers, and distributors converge on Chicago to set up shop, displaying and sampling their artisanal wares for the annual Independent Spirits Expo. The exhibitors come from all over the world, featuring more than 500 spirits like vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and mezcal. In the past exhibitors have included Bunnahabhain of Scotland alongside Indiana's Redemption Rye bourbon. Meanwhile, Martin Miller's Gin will show off its Icelandic cocktail companions as Kavalan Whiskey struts its stuff with its eponymous spirit.
