The BC Distilled returns to the Croatian Cultural Centre on Saturday, May 13th, supporting PADS in a variety of ways, including a raffle for some of the incredible BC-made spirits. Join us Tuesday, May 2nd at 1:00 PM PDT to chat with Alex Hamer- the man behind the event- to learn more about his long-standing partnership with PADS and about the upcoming event!

Did you know that BC Distilled started in 2013 as a way to bring together the province’s distilleries in one place for spirits fans to sample their products? Alex tells us that in 2016 he decided to improve the charity fundraising component of the show and decided to reach out to PADS.

“I knew of PADS through friends who had raised a puppy (rest in peace lovely Piper), and felt it would be a great organization to support. But really I think I was looking for an excuse to get some puppy time in while the show was on. Literally everyone involved in BC Distilled, from the distillers to the volunteers to the attendees agree this is one of the best parts of the event.”
