With notes of fine spirits and the camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts, the much-anticipated 10th Annual Distiller’s Showcase of Premium Spirits is ready to make its return. This event promises an unforgettable evening dedicated to the artistry of distilled beverages where you will explore and enjoy some of the finest spirits around. Mark your calendars for November 2, 2023, as the Doubletree by Hilton in Manchester Downtown transforms into a haven for connoisseurs and curious minds.
With a legacy of excellence spanning a decade, the Distiller’s Showcase has firmly established itself as a highlight of the spirits calendar. Presented by the esteemed Tito’s Handmade Vodka and with all event and auction proceeds benefiting the New Hampshire Food Bank, this year’s showcase embodies the spirit of celebration and giving back. As the sun sets on November 2, from 6 to 8:30 PM, the doors of the Doubletree by Hilton will open to welcome guests into a world where craftsmanship and flavor reign supreme.
Last Year’s Success: A Glimpse into the Past
As the ninth annual showcase unfolded, it helped to set the stage for this year’s grand affair. By the numbers, it was a resounding success, with a total of 767 tickets sold—comprising both general admission and industry tickets—and a staggering total amount of $451,919.85 in ticket sales. The evening included 26 participating restaurants that kept attendees full while they tasted and 235 “Sip n Stay” guests taking advantage of the package that extended into a night of fun.
Beyond the tasting experience, the showcase embraced its role as a force for good. The live auction raised an impressive $13,650, while the silent auction contributed a further $8,000, all directed toward benefiting the New Hampshire Food Bank. When the numbers were tallied, the event’s contribution to the cause stood at an astounding $125,000, showcasing the power of collective generosity in making an impact on the community.
Looking Ahead: A Spectacular Anniversary
As the Distiller’s Showcase reaches its momentous 10th edition, anticipation is at an all-time high. This year’s event offers the Ambassador, Connoisseur, and Master Distiller Packages, giving attendees an array of options for a tailored experience. Early bird discounts apply to the Ambassador and Connoisseur packages until October 1st. Reflecting a commitment to responsible enjoyment, for those seeking to extend the experience, the “Sip n Stay” promotion offers the chance to pair any package with a hotel room, ensuring a seamless and safe evening.
In true Distiller’s Week fashion, a series of smaller events throughout the week will add to the festivities, culminating in the showcase on November 2nd. While the theme for the night before the showcase has yet to be unveiled, there is the promise of an engaging and immersive experience, judging by last year’s “A Taste of Ireland,” a journey into the heart of Irish culture and its revered libations.
As the countdown begins, the 10th Annual Distiller’s Showcase of Premium Spirits stands as a testament to a decade of passion, dedication, and a shared love for the art of spirits. With each sip, each connection forged, and each contribution made, the event embraces its legacy while setting the stage for the next chapter in the world of distilled excellence.
