Digest Miami Launches Bureau of Spirits at A.I.R. Miami Beach


Digest Miami continues its commitment to culinary exploration with these intimate and unique experiences and launched of Bureau of Spirits,  a series of rotating craft spirits and culinary events bringing together local and national small batch distilleries, craft breweries and South Florida’s best local chefs. Each Bureau of Spirits event features a meet and greet with master distillers and brewers, unique cocktails and tastings, chefs’ selected pairings and an intimate opportunity to learn about the people and processes that make up the craft movement.

Bureau of Spirits launch party took place Thursday, September 25th at the A.I.R. (Artists in Residence) on Miami Beach. This initial event highlighted three Florida distilleries including Wicked Dolphin, Miami Club Rum and Alchemist Distilleries with a complimentary tasting and cocktail selection. Kris Wessel of Oolite created a delectable menu of passed hors d’oeuvres to complement the evening. All of the refreshments will be made with local produce from our friend and expert forager, Nick Bernal of Seasons Farm Fresh, a group of foragers that provide sustainably grown and harvested produce from Florida’s local farms.

The Bureau of Spirits launch also celebrated the official kickoff of the 2nd Annual CRAFT: Spirits & Beer to be held in January 2015.
