When it comes to making choices about fish and seafood, it seems like there are an overwhelming number of questions. Wild or farm-raised? Should you “buy local?” How do you know if you are making sustainable choices?

Botanicals Workshop with One Eight Distilling

Gin is the base for many popular cocktails, distilled from juniper berries and other botanicals that add unique flavors to the final spirit.  Join Slow Food DC to learn how Snail of Approval winner One Eight Distilling selects and sources the botanicals that go into their signature gin, and then re-purposes those botanicals after the distilling process is finished. And with your newfound knowledge, you’ll help craft a custom gin on the spot, all while sampling gin cocktails!

Tickets are $30 are can be purchased here: https://sfdcbotanicalsworkshop.eventbrite.com
