Featuring more than 200 of the world’s finest spirits, the 2011 fine spirits festivals in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia will offer something for everyone from the novice to the connoisseur.
Each festival provides a one-of-a-kind tasting event for visitors, along with an opportunity to meet the distillers who are the masters behind the products.
“We are happy to be part of these events again this year and are pleased to continue supporting the efforts of organizations like Safe Home Philadelphia and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which do so much for so many Pennsylvanians in need,” said Liquor Control Board chairman Joseph E. Brion.[ Also Read: Consumers Share their Story of DaVinci Wine ]
