Liberty Call Distilling will celebrate the reopening of its restaurant and distillery in Barrio Logan with a bourbon release party on Saturday, June 5.

Having halted operations shortly after opening last year to produce hand sanitizer, Liberty Call’s party will be the first event at its new 3,300 square-foot tasting room in the Mercado del Barrio with a view of the Coronado Bridge.

The reopening event will feature 50-person seatings at 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to taste the distillery’s four-year-old wheated bourbon. During the event, the Chef Miguel Valdez’ regular restaurant menu featuring tacos and chicken wings will be available.

Founder Bill Rogers will be onsite to chat with guests alongside distiller Josh Christy, giving fans of craft distilling an opportunity to meet the maker of the new bourbon.

“This has been a long time coming. We’ve been toeing the line with small, member-centric events while maintaining pandemic protocols. Finally, this release party will be something we can open up to more people and really show-off our hidden gem in Barrio,” said Rogers.

Tickets range from $20 to $50 and can be purchased online.
