More than 100 craft distillers from around the country will share their bourbons, vodkas, gins and more tomorrow, Tuesday, July 23, to benefit the National Press Club’s Journalism Institute.

The event, to be held in the First Amendment and Holeman Lounges, will begin at 6 p.m, and will be open to members of the Club, working journalists and the general public. Please register online.

The tasting is sponsored by the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States and the American Craft Spirits Association to raise funds for the Club's Journalism Institute, which campaigns for press freedom issues and helps train journalists.

Credentialed press will need to present identification such as a congressional pass or news organization ID at the door. Club members will need to use their Club ID during registration.
