Artisanal Spirit and Cocktail Market

Don't get us wrong, we love regular farmers markets, too. But when we have the chance to hit up a market full of artisan spirits and other cocktail-related products, you can bet a bottle of 30-year-old scotch we're going to go. The Artisan Spirit and Cocktail Market, a part of Arizona Cocktail Week, will bring together dozens of boutique spirits, craft spirits, and micro-distillers for an afternoon of tastings, mini demos, and opportunities to see newest cocktail trends. The event will takes place at Hotel Valley Ho's Ballroom 2 from 1 to 4 p.m. and is free with an Arizona Cocktail Week wristband, which can be purchased at the hotel for $10. For a list of participating vendors, check out the list of artisan Cocktail Week sponsors.
