Savor the Spirits

Saturday, April 20th, 2024 / 11am-5pm

We would like to invite you to join us for our 3rd annual Savor the Spirits event, Saturday, April 20, 2024.

The Roycroft Campus, designated a National Historic Landmark, is considered the birthplace of the American Arts & Crafts Movement, a philosophy of creating high quality, handcrafted products using your “Head, Heart and Hands.” This event shared this ideal of handcrafted excellence with a celebration of New York’s wineries, distilleries and meaderies.

With the purchase of a ticket, guests will receive a Roycroft wine glass and have the opportunity to explore the Historic Roycroft Campus buildings and grounds while sampling various wines and spirits from around the region. Guests will also have the option to purchase bottles to take home.

  • Q) Suggestions for a Safe & Enjoyable Event

There may be lines at the beginning of the event as people get checked-in and spread throughout the Campus. Please be patient or come a little later in the day.

Please pace yourself, you will have time to experience all you’d like! Your day will be much more enjoyable if you spread things out and experience parts of the Campus in between tastings.

Please be courteous, respectful, and kind to others and keep in mind that everyone is coming together to have a pleasant experience.

Use the spit buckets. You’re doing a tasting and should pace yourself. There’s no pressure to drink everything you’re trying. Vendors won’t be offended if you don’t like something. Everyone’s tastes are different. They are looking to sell you the product that you will like.

Rinse out your glass between products! You don’t want a new sample to taste like the previous product.

If you do not have a designated driver, please coordinate a ride home from a ride share service or friend/family member. Another option is to make reservations for dinner or an overnight stay at the Roycroft Inn.
