Flagship tasting event at Fremont Studios will showcase Washington's leading distilleries

All-new VIP ticket gives attendees extra hour of tasting at PROOF

What's better than four hours of tasting Washington's finest custom-made spirits, meeting up-and-coming local craftsmen and women, and listening to a soundtrack laid down by KEXP's DJ Riz? How about five hours?

All-new for the second year of PROOF - The Washington's Distillers Festival, is a VIP ticket that grants attendees an extra hour of tasting, two additional tasting tokens (for a total of 12) and best of all, access to the exclusive PROOF After-Party at the W Hotel, where the drinks, food and fun will continue late into the night.

The one-night-only event, showcasing the highly regarded spirits being made by the men and women of the Washington Distillers Guild, runs from 5-9 p.m. on Saturday, July 12 at Fremont Studios (155 N. 35th St.). Full information, including a list of participating distilleries and restaurants, plus ticket prices and more, is available online at PROOFWashington.org.

Last year's debut event was a huge hit with distillers and consumers alike. More than 40 craft distilleries attended the sold-out event, where attendees met and mingled with the craftsmen and women of the Washington Distillers Guild - the largest of its kind in the nation - while enjoying award-winning spirits, delicious local bites and more, in a hip, urban setting designed to showcase grand tasting programming and education.

Already in 2014, nearly three dozen distilleries and over a dozen restaurants have committed to PROOF, while ticket sales are tracking towards a second-consecutive sellout.

Including tastings of locally made whiskey, gin, bourbon, vodka and other craft spirits, attendees will have the chance to discover a new favorite cocktail made by local restaurants, and purchase bottles of their favorite new finds. In addition, local bartenders will provide tips on mixing drinks and upgrading your home bar, and DJ Riz of KEXP will lay down a mood-setting soundtrack.

Since its initial announcement last year, PROOF has generated considerable buzz in the Seattle food-and-beverage industry, where craft spirits represent one of the fastest-growing segments of the market. Owned by the Guild and produced by local event team Varsity Communications, who also co-produce the long-running and successful Taste Washington and 20something wine-tasting events, PROOF was the first event of its kind to bring together so many Washington distillers under one roof.
