2014 Annual Spirits Conference & Vendor Expo


March 31 – April 2, 2014

There is a movement sweeping the country – a movement challenging the status quo. You know, because you are a part of it. Your hard work has brought new spirits to the marketplace, generated new jobs, increased tourism and created new markets for small farmers. Born with the trailblazers, American Distilling Institute has grown alongside our industry, challenging and reinventing itself as the voice of Craft Distilling.

Distilling has outgrown its nascent status. Clearly a force to be reckoned with this past Spring, more than 900 people descended on Denver for ADI’s 10th Anniversary Spirits Conference. Together, we’re putting craft distilling on the map, and we’re ready to break a new record! ADI is proud to announce that over 1000 people are expected to attended the 2014 national conference in downtown Seattle, WA, next to Pike Place Market, with our home base being the Sheraton Seattle.


Why Washington? Washington has become a hotbed of distillation, with 70 functioning distilleries, 30 under construction, and another 30 in the works. With great pride, ADI announces a partnership with the Washington Distillers Guild to bring the largest gathering of craft distillers to Seattle.

This will be our most exciting conference ever!
