Distiller's Week Featuring the Distiller's Showcase of Premium Spirits


Oct 27, 2018 to Nov 2, 2018


The Distiller's Week features a Pappy Van Winkle tasting dinner and a chance to win the rare 23 year reserve at the Distiller's Showcase.

The New Hampshire Liquor Commission will host the inaugural Distiller’s Week, showcasing hundreds of the world’s best whiskies, tequilas, vodkas, rum and more in a series of exclusive events. The centerpiece of Distiller’s Week is the sixth annual Distiller’s Showcase of Premium Spirits, which benefits the Animal Rescue League of NH (November 1). The impressive tasting event features more than 400 premium and ultra-premium spirits for sampling.

In addition to the Distiller’s Showcase, NHLC will host a Pappy Van Winkle tasting dinner (October 30), an opportunity to learn about distilling spirits at Djinn Spirits (October 30), a one-of-a-kind Whiskey of the World tasting experience (October 31) and an exciting, live Cocktail & Mocktail competition (October 29) — along with several tasting dinners, seminars and in-store tasting and bottle-signing events throughout the state.

Also new this year is the Distiller’s Showcase size — the event will move into the Manchester Downtown Hotel’s expo center, which will allow for a capacity crowd of 1,500 guests. In addition to the 130 tables of spirits (including a special New Hampshire spirits section), the evening features food from some of the best local restaurants, the chance to bid on multiple bottles of the extremely rare Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23 year Kentucky straight bourbon and a silent auction.

New Hampshire Magazine is a proud sponsor of this event.
