April 24th, the team from @confluence_distilling will bring their locally distilled spirits and regale you with stories of how different cultures around the world embraced Gin, Vodka, and Aquavit. Of course, all of this will happen while you sip on a full flight of some stellar Confluence spirits, nibble on some paired appies, and imbibe on two specially created cocktails. It’s a perfectly boozy night out for you and your pals, but it’s going to sell out fast! Hit up the @shelter.yyc insta and follow the link for your tickets!
