Our first fall event was held at the Fisherman’s Restaurant, where attendees had some of our own Big Gin Punch and the spicy Bourbon Barreled Gin, along with tasty seafood appetizers. We then walked over to Copperworks Distillery and tasted the Malt Barrel Gin while Micah educated us on the larger distilling process. Finally, everyone got their thrill on the Great Wheel!
