The newest wave in artisan drink—the craft spirits movement—comes to Johns Hopkins' Homewood Museum, with potent shots of vodkas, whiskeys, and heritage liqueurs from modern micro-distillers who are resurrecting pre-Prohibition techniques and recipes.

  • Enjoy summer cocktails, a spirits tasting, and scrumptious catered appetizers
  • Discover how spirits were made in early America from Dennis Pogue, chief historian at George Washington's Mount Vernon, where the first president's own spirit recipes have been recently re-created
  • Place your bids at our silent auction
  • Meet and mingle with distillers from Catoctin Creek and Maryland's own Blackwater Distilling
  • Support the educational and exhibition programs of Homewood Museum
