Spiritedsfl’s sneak peek into the Greater Fort Lauderdale Food & Wine Festival
Are you ready for a new culinary festival? One with a never before seen emphasis on craft spirits? We are excited to reveal the amazing craft presence at the inaugural Greater Fort Lauderdale Food & Wine Festival’s Grand Tasting at ArtsPark, Hollywood on Saturday, March 23rd. This festival is divided into several open air experiences, with over fifty craft spirit and beer expressions to choose your sips from, this is a tasting opportunity you won’t want to miss.
Beverage partners include a wide variety of wines, beers, liquors and (my favorite) craft spirits from celebrated brands to local breweries and distilleries. Some of the most talked about craft brands join the festival and are highlighted below.
Bungalow 954 – Backyard at the Beach Taste Americana with GFL‘s biggest, boldest BBQ + burgers paired with spirits, beer and cocktails: Bourbon, Whiskey, Rum, Rye, oh my. Festival guests will sample expressions from Horse Soldier – the Official Bourbon, High West Distillery, Heaven’s Door Bourbon, HillBilly Bourbon, Michter’s Rye, Whistle Pig Rye, Old Forester Rye, Slane Irish Whiskey, Herradura Ultra, Belle Isle Moonshine, Ballotin Chocolate Whiskey, with Loch Lomond and Glen Scotia Scotch. They will also get to taste delicious rums by Papa’s Pilar Rum, Afrohead Rum, Stolen Rum, Marti Rum Liqueur, Gator Bite Rum Liqueur and Miami Club Rum.
In the Rosé Garden + Bistro guests can Rosé all day the European way. They’ll experience elegant edibles from Italy and France with continental cocktails, wines + bubbly. But that’s not all. They’ll also sample vodka and gin from Blue Ice Vodka, 44 North Vodka, Farmer’s Gin + Crop Organic Vodka, Prairie Vodka, Siesta Key Rum and Brooklyn Gin among other stellar brands.
