On April 24, downtown Vancouver’s CBC Studio One was temporarily turned into a mecca for spirits lovers during the second annual BC Distilled festival.
There were 22 artisan small-batch distillers from across the province exhibiting, including 11 making an appearance for the first time, pouring samples of their latest products and classic offerings. Over 600 guests sought reprieve from the hot sun deep underground in Studio One, enjoying sips and chatting with the vendors.
Attendees also had the opportunity to cast their votes for their favourite vodka, gin, and other spirit/liqueur. The first place winners are:
- Vodka: Unruly Vodka by Wayward Distillation House
- Gin: Noteworthy Gin by Dubh Glas
- Spirit/liqueur: No. 82 Amaretto by Sons of Vancouver
