I am DRUNK! Drunk with excitement that Saturday March 26th is the 3rd annual BC Distilled. A tasting event featuring twenty seven British Columbian craft and micro distilleries in one place from 6:30 to 9 pm at the Croation Cultural Centre. Everything from Gin, Vodka, and Whiskey will be on hand to sample along with tasty canapes prepared by great local restaurants like Forage, Boulevard and Edible Canada. If you haven’t made plans for the Easter weekend then head over and get your ticket now. $59.99 is all it takes to enjoy samples from all 27 distilleries and food from some of Vancouver’s best restaurants. If that isn’t enough to convince you, here are 5 more reasons to attend BC Distilled.

Hope to see you at BC Distilled on March 26th. By the way, after the festival ends make sure you head over to Yaletown Distilling Company, The Liberty Distillery and Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar (largest selection of BC Spirits at a single bar) to sample some of the signature cocktails I featured above.
