Vivacity Distillery Tour and Tasting

Slow Food Corvallis hosted a private tasting at Vivacity Distillery on May 19.  Guests enjoyed tastes of locally distilled vodka and gin as well as some experimental spirits all produced in this amazing copper still by proprietors Caitlin Prueitt and Chris Neumann. While Caitlin poured tastes and described her delicious liquors made with locally-sourced ingredients, participants noshed on scrumptious edible delights provided by Slow Food Board members. Chris entertained and informed all describing how the still was transported and set up as well as explaining the distilling process. It was a delightful afternoon which combined taste education and enjoyment with knowledge about a new and growing craft industry in the Willamette Valley.
