BC Distilled Festival returns to Vancouver on Saturday, April 8 at the Croatian Cultural Centre. Celebrate over 30 regional, small batch and micro-distilleries from across the province. Distillers and owners will share their wisdom as you taste locally made spirits like gin, vodka, whisky, sake and aquavit, which you can then purchase at Legacy Liquor's on site pop-up shop. Satiate with tasty bites from Juniper, Timber, Cascade Room, and more.

Serious spirit connoisseurs can sign up for a three-day tasting series during the week leading up the the event, hosted by Legacy Liquor. Take an in-depth look at BC gins (April 3), whiskies (April 4) and barrel-aged gins (April 5). Each tasting will be presented by an expert who will guide you through the samples.

For the foodies, don't miss the Distillers Dinner at Forage Restaurant on April 7. Executive Chef Chris Whittaker will dish out six innovative courses paired with spirits from six BC distilleries.
