Spirits of Maryland – Baltimore Museum of Industry

Monika Horizons and I attended the Spirits of Maryland event at The Baltimore Museum of Industry on Sunday, June 25th. This outdoor event featured live music from Ted Garber, light appetizers, and plenty of rum, whiskey, vodka, gin, and liqueurs from all over Maryland.

This was an all-you-can-taste event, but if we’d attempted to taste even half of what was there, we would have ended up in the hospital. I had no idea there were so many distilleries in Maryland! Granted, some of them just started up in the past month, but I literally didn’t sample anything that wasn’t top-notch and didn’t taste like it came from a world-class outfit. I’m a huge gin and vodka snob, and I was legitimately impressed with some of the unique and creative recipes that made these brands stand out from your standard top shelf spirits.
