Expo highlighting Virginia's distilled spirits coming to Charlottesville
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- Nearly two dozen distilleries across Virginia will be represented at an upcoming event at the IX Art Park.
The Virginia Spirits Expo is coming to Charlottesville on June 3.
It will feature 23 award-winning distilleries from across the Commonwealth, offering more than 200 spirits to sample.
Each of the distilleries will also have bottles of their products available for purchase that are typically only found at the distilleries’ locations, not the stores operated by the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority.
There will also be live music from Radio Riot and Zach Angle, food, industry-related vendors, and more.
Attendees will have a chance to vote on Virginia’s Favorite Distillery, and there are three from this area that are participating: Ragged Branch Distillery, the Virginia Distillery Company, and Vitae Spirits Distillery.
Those who get a VIP ticket to the event will be able to enter at 2 p.m., while general admission opens at 3 p.m.
