Craft distilleries heavily rely on their local community for support. However, not every distillery embraces and returns the favor as a place for its community to thrive. But Tarpon Springs Distillery in Florida has decided to put its best foot forward and be a place where its spirits enthusiast community can grow and thrive.
Tarpon Springs Distillery hosts several local musicians at their distillery and is almost always alive with live music. They built a stage outside to double down on their support for the local music scene. They also participate in various festivals that can be found not just in Tarpon Springs but all around the greater Tampa Bay area.
However, one of Tarpon Springs Distillery’s favorite events is its monthly bottle club. Each month is a different spirit theme, and guests bring their bottles to share with the rest of the participants. They get to explain why they selected the bottle and what they love about it. Usually, there are over 20 bottles for people to try, and it’s a great way to try new things and become more versed in a wide variety of spirits.
It is remarkable that a distillery encourages others to bring their favorite bottles to share with their friends and fellow spirits enthusiasts. It just shows their commitment to growing their spirits community and sharing in the fun with everyone. If you’re a spirits enthusiast in the area, this is a great free event that you don’t want to miss.
