BC Distilled Returns After a Two Year Break

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

After being on hold since 2020, BC Distilled returns for its seventh annual event. This year’s event will feature two smaller capacity tasting sessions (one in the afternoon, one in the evening) in order to keep the space less crowded and put its distillers, volunteers, and guests at more ease.

BC Distilled is proud to host a BC whisky tasting led by Davin de Kergommeaux, a drinks writer, public speaker and spirits judge, who is recognized as the world expert on Canadian whisky. Each attendee will get a signed copy of The Definitive Guide to Canadian Distilleries (co-written with Blair Phillips).

Distillers Dinner at Forage
Executive Chef Welbert Choi will feature five cocktail and spirit samples from BC distilleries, paired with five terroir-based courses. An optional cocktail reception preceding the dinner will be hosted at next door’s BeSide, with a sixth distillery providing cocktails.
