So apparently I'm all about last minute or after-the-fact posts lately. Life has been a little busier than usual which is why it's Friday and I'm just now telling you about an awesome event on...Saturday. Yes, tomorrow.
Here's the scoop. The Oregon Distillers Guild is throwing its annual fall tasting tomorrow -- Saturday, October 17th from 1-4pm at McMenamins Edgefield to kick off Oregon Distillery Month. Tickets are $20 and if you want one call McMenamins Edgefield at 503.669.8610 or just head on over.
A lot of local distilleries are participating and there will be more than 20 spirits to taste.
Distilleries representing include Artisan Spirits, Bendistillery, Cascade Peak Distillery, Highball Distillery, Hood River Distillers, House Spirits, Indio Spirits, Integrity Spirits, Liquid Vodka, New Deal Distillery, Rogue Spirits, McMenamins Edgefield Distillery, Sub Rosa Spirits and more.
I wrote a story about several of these distilleries a couple years ago.
According to the press release:
The Oregon Distillers Guild was the first state based craft distilling group to band together and form a Guild. The Oregon Distillers Guild formed in May of 2007 and has sponsored two bills before the Oregon Legislature; influenced policy within the Oregon Liquor Control Commission and worked with Travel Oregon and Oregon Bounty programs to promote Oregon as a destination for all things liqurious.
I'm not sure about "liqurious" but the rest sounds great.
