More than 100 premium drinks to sample at city’s brand new Spirits Festival
Some of the world’s finest spirits will be going up for the taste test at an exclusive weekend event devoted to the art of distilling.
Taking place at Constellations on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th March, Liverpool’s first-ever Spirits Festival will showcase more than 100 brands including complex gins, rums, whiskies and vodka.
The concept of the event being held at the Greenland Street venue, which is located in the Baltic Triangle district of the city, came as a result of a unique collaboration between some of the most knowledgeable drinks experts from Merseyside and beyond.
Hosts for Spirits Festival include Tom Mills, founder of acclaimed independent bottler Malt of The Earth Whisky Co; Paul Murphy, of Fenwick Street’s highly regarded Whisky Business shop; and Paul Seiffert, who’s the brains behind the beloved Liverpool Craft Beer Expo and the Baltic Triangle’s go-to specialist craft beer bar, Black Lodge.
Between them, they’ll be presenting a two-day insight into the world of distilled spirits and offering samples of everything from the finer points of modern American whisky to the berry- infused botanicals of British gins.
“We’re huge fans of all kinds of different spirits, and we’re looking forward to showcasing them all under one roof,” says Tom Mills.
“There’s currently a big renaissance in creative spirit production and this is an exciting opportunity to taste some of the most interesting modern spirits and meet their makers – we’re lucky to be bringing them all together for this special event.”
The Spirits Festival also includes masterclasses from drinks experts, cocktail workshops and exclusive previews of new Liverpool city distillery.
