ECHO AfterDark series kicks off the summer with a special evening event hosted by the Distilled Spirits Council of Vermont. The evening will take place on the picturesque Dealer.com Terrace where guests will celebrate close to a dozen Vermont craft distilleries.
ECHO AfterDark guests will sample spirits from close to a dozen producers from Hardwick to Brattleboro. Award-winning participating producers include Vermont Spirits, Caledonia Spirits, WhistlePig, Smugglers’ Notch Distillery, Vermont Distillers, Mad River Distillers, Green Mountain Distillers, Dunc’s Mill, Appalachian Gap, Boyden Valley Winery, and Saxton’s River Distiller.
Live music will be part of the evening as will tasty locally-sourced food prepared by Sugarsnap. Each distiller will also design a unique cocktail developed from their own product which will be available at the special Lakeside Bar. There will also be a raffle prize drawing for a lucky guest to win a day at a distillery where they will learn about the nuances of making high quality spirits.
Tickets are $20 for ECHO members and $25 for all others and are available online. All proceeds benefit ECHO Open Door educational access program. (Makes a great Father’s Day gift!)
ECHO AfterDark is a series of events for the 21+ crowd where we mix 1 part science, and 2 parts fun while exploring a wide variety of topics.
