Black Spirits Legacy presents the Liquid Forum and the Taste of Black Spirits to highlight Black-owned brands and industry leaders, September 29-30. Many consumers are unaware of Black-owned spirit companies and their products. The Liquid Forum and TBS will create more awareness and access to these underrepresented brands.
The Liquid Forum will gather a national panel of Black spirits business leaders. Panelists will reflect on their professional journeys and provide expert mentorship for entrepreneurs interested in the spirit industry. Tickets are $25 and will take place Thursday, September 29, 5 p.m. at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.
The Taste of Black Spirits: The Evolution returns Friday, September 30 at 5p.m. Tickets start at $55 and will take place at the Garden Theatre. This will be a curated experience to increase equity for Black-owned spirit brands. The event will highlight the history and evolution of Black master distillers and trailblazers of the industry. Attendees will have a chance to sample products and meet the founders of those brands.
“Underrepresentation and a lack of diversity has long been an issue in the spirits industry”, says chief executive curator of Black Spirits Legacy Lazar Favors. “The Taste of Black Spirits continues to build on the remarkable legacy of African American master distillers and industry leaders to generate equity for Black entrepreneurs. I am motivated to give our audience a unique, high quality, experience and create access to capital for Black owned spirit brands”.
