What's On

We will be back in the Spring of 2021 with another Virtual Conference!

 

The team at the Craft Distilling Expo are proud to have presented a range of talks and panel discussions for our first virtual conference. Some perennial favourites and familiar faces returned, and we were joined by many exciting new speakers and topics of conversation.

We have been expanding our focus on environmental issues to include a general sustainable distilling discussion and held a new session on sustainable packaging.

See The 2020 Agenda
