EVENT OVERVIEW

Our April event shows tribute to one of the newest trends in home craft alchemy. According to the American Distilling Institute, “In 2003, there were 60 craft distillers operating in the United States. Today [January 27th, 2016], that total is 760, and a further 200 are under construction.” To serve those who want to follow the distillery trend, we crafted a weekend of fun-filled activities and educational features. Our Distilled: Craft Spirits & Artisan Meats Weekend has the best vendors catering to the craft of distilling and charcuterie and they will be there to show you the ropes.

Start the weekend with dinner and paired cocktails. Professional mixologists will create your beverages, telling why they chose the mix and how it compliments your meal. Following dinner, dance your way downstairs in our Main Lodge to listen to live music at the Northwoods Pub.

All day Saturday, emerge yourself in the world of distilleries with the ones who know it best. Join us on this excursion to sip, taste, sample and of course, relax. Meet the distillers of these incredible libations and the artists behind the butcher blocks. Cap the evening with a Grand Tasting where you can surf a room full of unique pours and find your favorite tastes. This two night and three day experience is like no other in the state and a worthy journey for your taste buds!
