PROOF returns July 9
PROOF - The Washington Distillers Festival, the tasting event showcasing Washington's finest distilleries, will rerun for the fourth year on July 9 at Seattle's Fermont Studios. Tickets, a full list of participating distilleries and restaurants, plus complete event info, are available online at PROOFwashington.org.
Including tastings of locally made whiskey, gin, bourbon, vodka and other craft spirits, attendees will have the chance to discover a new favorite cocktail made by local restaurants, and meet the craftsmen and women of the Washington Distillers Guild — the largest of its kind in the U.S. Bottles will also be on sale direct from the distilleries at their tables (with proceeds benefiting the Washington Distillers Guild), while local bartenders will provide tips on mixing drinks and upgrading your home bar.
Tickets are $45 through June 28 ($50 after), and include more than three hours of tasting (5:30-9 p.m.). A limited number of VIP tickets, including an extra hour of tasting, a VIP Glencairn glass and two additional tasting tickets, are $65. Last year's VIP tickets sold out quickly, so advance purchase is recommended. Tickets can be purchased online at PROOFWashington.org.
