Get your snifters ready, Columbus.
Next month, the first-ever Ohio Craft Whiskey Festival will take place in a unique farm setting.
Held on October 16 from 12-5 p.m., the event will feature a dozen Ohio distilleries serving up their finest spirits. Visitors can expect to see the following buckeye state purveyors:
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
Echo Spirits Distilling Co.
Middle West Spirits
High Bank Distillery
Noble Cut Distillery
Brain Brew Custom Whiskey
Indian Creek Distillery
Karrikin Spirits Company
And while an afternoon with this many Ohio distilleries is a good time for any whiskey lover, the festival’s venue, Henmick Farm & Brewery, will likely add intrigue of its own.
Located at 4380 N. Old State Rd. in Delaware, Henmick doubles as both a historic family farmstead and a functioning craft brewery, complete with taproom and event space. It opened earlier this summer, and features a reconstructed 1800s barn alongside eight acres of open land guests are free explore.
Complete with on-site food trucks and live music, this seems like a pretty decent whiskey-sipping backdrop to us.
Visitors will also be able to purchase the first-ever Ohio Distillers Guild Collaboration whiskey, an extremely limited spirit created from hand-selected barrels by four different Ohio distilleries.
