The American Distilling Instiute's 6th annual Distilling Conference is scheduled for April 2-5 in Alameda, CA.
The topic: Brandy.
Brandy? Yup. ADI Director Bill Owens told me the number of member craft distilleries getting involved in making brandy keeps expanding, and he's created a conference schedule to take full advantage of the fact.
The event will be hosted by St. George Spirits, 2601 Monarch Street in Alameda. It will include a hands-on brandy distilling workshop at the Osocalis Distillery in Santa Cruz, various distillery tours in the area, and a "Meet the Makers Spirits Festival" on the final day with a special industry-only preview session preceding the public event.
The ADI was founded in 2002 and has more than 160 U.S. member distillers throughout the nation, as well as 10 Canadian members. To get the details, go here and click on "craft distillers."
