The Charleston chapter of Slow Food USA, a non-profit organization focused on an idea, way of living, and way of eating. This global grassroots movement promotes good, clean and fair food. The Thursday evening fundraiser which showcased five different tasting stations representing some local and regional liquor distilleries speaks to those values. Striped Pig Distillery, High Wire Distillery, Charleston Distilling Co., Virgil Kaine and Cathead Vodka all embody the Slow Sips credo. They all offer quality product, using locally grown and harvested ingredients at fair prices.
It was a real treat to taste new product from some of our favorite local liquor producers. Virgil Kaine introduced a new ginger infused bourbon while Cathead Vodka proudly offered the latest addition to their product line, Hoodoo, a chicory flavored liqueur. Striped Pig Distillery finally revealed their lip smacking Bourbon after hinting about a new product on social media. We also had the opportunity to taste product from the new opened Charleston Distilling Co. It was worth the wait. Jasper’s Gin is delicious without the overwhelming juniper flavor. The Cocktail Club offered custom cocktails from each of the featured distilleries giving $1 to Slow Food Charleston. For more information on Slow Food Charleston, visit www.slowfoodcharleston.org
