Spirits were high at the fifth annual BC Distilled festival at the Croatian Cultural Centre in Vancouver on April 14, which brought together 40 artisan distilleries from around the province, including a dozen new distilleries that have opened in the last year.

Created to celebrate and highlight B.C.’s vibrant distilling community, the festival is the largest spirits event in Canada reserved exclusively for local distilleries.

The festival raised nearly $6,000 for the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) through a silent auction, 50/50 draw, and a portion of ticket sales. “For a distillery event, it’s fun that one of the most frequently mentioned positive aspects in our post-event survey is the presence of (PADS) dogs,” BC Distilled founder Alex Hamer said in a press release. PADS breeds, raises, trains and supports certified assistance dogs for people living with disabilities and for community care professionals.

The audience favourite awards have also been announced:
