BC Distilled: Win Tickets

Comments 61 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Canada’s largest artisan distillery event, BC Distilled, includes 40 distilleries from across British Columbia showcasing their best products to both aficionados and newbies alike.

This year the festival features 12 new distilleries which have opened since last year’s show. Each distillery is represented by the distiller or other distillery staff, giving guests a chance to interact with the people who actually make the spirits.
