From our friends at Park Hyatt Washington, D.C....

Park Hyatt Washington D.C. to Host Masters of Food & Wine Event with Vermont’s Caledonia Spirits on Wednesday, June 28

Park Hyatt Washington, D.C. will host a Spring 2017 Park Hyatt Masters of Food & Wine, a seasonal culinary & beverage experience on Wednesday, June 28. This culinary gathering salutes the local ingredients and flavors, which inspire our chefs, and the landcrafted raw honey spirits from Caledonia Spirits of Vermont. This intimate gathering will be hosted on Blue Duck Tavern’s Garden Terrace and will explore the unique qualities of honey, the roles that bees play in our food system, and how Caledonia Spirits has transformed fermented raw honey into their award-winning Barr Hill Gin, Tom Cat Gin, and Barr Hill Vodka.

Tickets are priced at $125 per person (all-inclusive) which includes a three-course, family-style feast (with multiple dishes per course) from Michelin-starred Blue Duck Tavern’s Executive Chef Troy Knapp, along with a spirit tasting and Barr Hill cocktails provided by Lead Bartender Cole Burger.

Caledonia Spirits is an independent craft distillery located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, which was inspired by the views from atop the Barr Hill Nature Preserve. Caledonia Spirits was founded in 2009 with a vision to support working landscapes and local agriculture by making Barr Hill craft spirits from regional raw materials.

About Caledonia Spirits:
Caledonia Spirits' mindful approach to distilling is influenced by Vermont’s working landscape and the four seasons that so strongly define Vermont. Their fermentation process captures the natural variation of wild yeast. With custom built stills that reflect their do-it-yourself ethos, the distillers skillfully select the heart of each batch. Raw honey is the distinguishing ingredient in each spirit, imparting a soft and subtle essence of wildflower nectars. To sip Barr Hill is to be transported to a wild place on the fringe of field and forest - this is Landcrafted. Additional information can be found at
