We are kicking off the holiday season with a specialty bus tour showcasing three Kalamazoo distilleries -- The Kalamazoo Stillhouse, Gull Lake Distilling Co. and Green Door Distilling -- presenting a signature holiday cocktail using a different spirit.
Guests will learn about each distillery, its chosen spirit and how to make a festive craft cocktail for you next holiday party. Supplies and recipe cards needed to replicate the drink and 'wow' your friends will also be available.
To help get in the spirit, we're encouraging people to wear their favorite ugly sweater or seasonal garb -- and prizes will be award along the tour to some of our favorites.
The tour will begin with registration from noon to 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4 at Old Burdick's Bar & Grill inside the Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Kalamazoo. You can book your discounted room through this link: https://bit.ly/3FboVtm
The ticket includes your seat on the bus, complimentary bottled water and snacks on the bus and craft cocktails at each of the three stops, as well as tax and gratuity for distillery staff.
