1350 Distilling and Elev8 Glass are coming together. People can donate $20 and receive a complimentary cocktail and an entry into a drawing for 1350 Distilling products, Elev8 Glass products, merchandise, Taste & Tour of our distillery and cocktail coupons, glass blowing classes, and other local business prizes to help raise money for the families of the Club Q victims.

The Fifty Best has once again shined its spotlight on bourbon whiskey by hosting a tasting where contenders were evaluated for the distinguished “Best Bourbon” Awards of 2023. 1350 Distilling Guardian Bourbon Whiskey (80 Proof / 40% ABV) was awarded a Gold medal.
