A number of New Mexico distilleries will participate in the festival on Sunday, Aug. 18. They are Albuquerque’s Blackstar, Broken Trail, Hollow Spirits, La Reforma, Left Turn, Safe House and Troubled Minds, as well as Algodones Distillery of Algodones; Glencoe of Ruidoso, Silver City’s Little Toad Creek; and Santa Fe Spirits in Santa Fe. Vendors also will be selling nonalcoholic drinks and food.
“Every distillery will have samples, so when you buy your ticket, you get in and you get to go to each distillery and say, ‘I want a sample of this,'” said Frank Holloway, event coordinator and owner of Hollow Spirits. “Pretty much all their spirits, their vodka, rum, gin, whiskey, whatever they choose to bring in. Also, a couple of them will have samples of the different cocktails that they make, pre-made cocktails that you can taste kind of what they make at the place.”
Hollow Spirits will be pouring its new Red 96 bourbon.
