The Science of Distilling

The Science of Distilling

Featuring: St. George Spirits,  Charbay Winery & Distillery, Anchor Distilling, 1512 Spirits, Essential Spirits, SFVodka and more


Sure, you can tell Johnnie Walker from Wild Turkey, but is there an inner geek behind that whiskey-swilling mustachioed facade? One that yearns to know how that lovely libation came to be before it graced your glass? Get your hands dirty learning the science behind the still (popcorn bourbon, anyone?) as we dive into the chemistry behind your cocktail. The Bay Area's master distillers will indulge your mad scientist side, as you geek out over interactive beverage creation stations, and enjoy a drink (or three). Explore how alcohol makes its way from the ground to your gullet and become a true bar star.

Tickets include: Tastings from the Bay’s best boozeries, molecular gastronomy-style cocktails made by expert SF mixologists, hands-on distilling demos, mini-interviews with the master distillers, and the chance to have a robot serve you a drink.

Location:  111 Minna Gallery, 111 Minna St.
Time: 6:30-9 p.m. program
