(The event will sell out at 400 guests) The distillery is responsible for supplying any promotional material and/or signage to help promote the distillery/product.
Other Regulations:Alcoholic beverages may only be served to patrons wearing an official event wristband as well as a tasting glass. This will ensure that they are of legal drinking age and have paid for the tastings. Do not serve to anyone without an event tasting glass. Distilleries are required to serve responsibly and may politely refuse service to anyone they feel to be intoxicated.
