Antique Planes and Artisan Spirits Landing on March 11 – Washington Made Spirits Soar Again At The Olympic Flight Museum

The Washington Distillers Guild will be holding the Second Annual South Sound Spirits Gathering at the Olympic Flight Museum on Saturday, March 11, 2017. This is a 21+ event, from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., open to the public to enjoy spirit samples from 20 Washington State distilleries.

Tumwater City Administrator John Doan says, “We are excited to again be home to the South Sound Spirits Gathering. Washington’s spirits represent the bounty of the state, and skill and creativity of craft distillers. We invite everyone to come experience the spirits of Washington along with the hospitality of Tumwater.”

The Olympic Flight Museum will create a unique backdrop for the tasting, with several of the distillers on hand to answer questions about their products, the distillation process, and where the industry is heading. Washington Distillers Guild President Steve Stone says, “We are excited to showcase the variety of Washington spirits to the South Puget Sound community with the help of the City of Tumwater. We received such strong support from the surrounding communities last year that we had to make this an annual tasting event.”

In addition to the March 11th tasting, the Guild has organized the South Sound Distillery tour to take place March 10th. Tickets are available for an additional $25 and transportation is provided.

Bottle sales will be available, providing guests the chance to take home favorites as well as some less accessible Washington spirits, with a portion of the tax sales to benefit the Washington Distillers Guild. Lyft will be promoting SAFE RIDES for the event as well. New Lyft members may use the code: SAFERIDESSSG17 for free credits. Proceeds support the Washington Distillers Guild.
