From our partners at Portland Cocktail Week:
Portland Cocktail Week
Each fall, distillers, bartenders, spirits enthusiasts, and media officials descend on Portland, Oregon for the Great American Distiller's Festival. With a desire to put our own creative cocktail knowledge to work, a few years ago, we began a small, but serious competition called the PDX Cocktail Invitational.
From one bartender competition, we have grown to include four days of seminars, parties, spirit tastings, networking opportunities, and – of course – more bartender competitions. It is our aim to highlight the best in distillation, engaging bartending and inventive mixology, all wrapped up in the beauty and hospitality of the Pacific Northwest. We bring you the first annual ¬Å“Portland Cocktail Week.¬Â
