DC Distillers Festival
Get ready for a roaring good time when the DC Distillers Festival returns Saturday, February 24, 2018. The Festival will take guests back to pre-Prohibition days for a 1920’s-style extravaganza featuring over over 60 craft spirits. 20 excellent distillers and three live jazz bands combine for a unique speakeasy experience showcasing specially selected, premium spirits with an emphasis on local craft distilleries. This event, spread out over three sessions, will fill Long View Gallery with brassy rhapsodies and bumping swing music while guests enjoy unlimited spirit samples.
Guests can meet distillers face-to-face to learn about their products and inspirations, and VIP ticket holders gain access one hour early. All spirit tastings are included in the ticket. Live entertainment includes music by the Tongue in Cheek Jazz Band and the Foggy Bottom Whomp-Stompers, dance by The Ladybirds, and a burlesque show by DC’s own Cherie Sweetbottom.
