Celebrating the art of distilled Spirits & Cocktails

The Craft Spirits Festival – the original exhibition of craft, small batch and artisanal spirits in Miami - will return for a second year from October 5 - 9 2014.

This year's festival will focus not only on celebrating and educating the public on craft spirits but on craft cocktails as well. There will be a weeklong series of events in and around Miami, including parties, happy hours, tours, seminars, cocktail dinners and industry/VIP only events. The culmination of the festival is the Grand Tasting.

The Grand Tasting will take place on Thursday, October 9, 2014 from 7-11 pm in the Cruz Building on Commodore Plaza. The tasting will showcase craft, small batch and artisanal producers of whiskies, rums, vodkas, gins and other distinct spirits and beverages as well as the bartenders/mixologists that bring them to our palate. More than 30 exhibitors will be showcasing 100+ distinct spirits and all will be available for sampling. Attendees will be able to enjoy unlimited samples of spirits plus fine inspired hors d’oeuvres by some of the best local chefs in Miami.

South Florida is regarded as a fertile market for growth in the craft/small batch/artisanal spirits market. This event will provide the avenue in which producers and consumers can meet, interact, educate and celebrate.

"We want to provide a venue for the consumer to meet and interact with distillers and ambassadors of craft, small batch, and artisanal spirits; in an environment conducive to quality communication. There is no better opportunity for the connoisseur and budding aficionado to sample and celebrate such a vast selection of spirits in one place. People want to learn about these incredible products, we want to provide the classroom," said Eddie Delamaza, Founder of Craft Spirits Festival.

A very limited number of tickets will be available for the public. General admission entry will be available for $55 and will provide entry from 8-11 pm.

Early Entry VIP admissions tickets will allow early access to the Grand Tasting beginning at 7 pm and will be offered at $75. 

Special event ticketing options will be announced after the summer.
