Launched in May of 2016, Asheville Cocktail Week became the first full week long cocktail event in the Southeast. After four successful years of our one day mixology event, ELIXIR, the decision was made to expand to a week filled with cocktail events. With the growing number of regional distilleries, our signature event ELIXIR in it's seventh year still holds as being one of the largest cocktail and distilling events in the South East.
We aim to have a variety of events at every price point so that no one is excluded from participating in Asheville Cocktail Week. Cocktail week features trainings and seminars, pairing dinners, spirit tastings, cocktail parties, and cocktail competitions.
This year, we have the goal of building on the foundation we created the previous 3 years by involving even more regional and national distilleries, bars, mixologists, and sponsors to create the week long party that celebrates the unique vibe that Asheville, NC has to offer.
