Koval And DucknRoll Team Up for Tour and Dinner

The miso-braised short rib bahn mi from DucknRoll.
Last month, Koval Distillery teamed up with Wagyu Wagon. This month, they're joining forces with DucknRoll, a new food truck that features Vietnamese-inspired dishes made with lots of, you guessed it, duck. Tomorrow evening, visitors can tour Koval and then pick up some tasty bites from the truck. Space is limited, so if you want to try some whiskey with your duck, you'd better buy tickets now.

You can register for the events separately, so if you're not interested in boozing it up or learning about liquor, you can just treat it as a food truck pop-up dinner. No matter what, you have to register in advance, and the tickets are on different pages. Food here, distillery here.

Customers have to select their food in advance. We'd buy a ticket for the Duck Gumbo, which is cooked with spiced turkey sausage, sweet corn, onions, stewed tomatoes, green and red peppers. They've got a two types of bahn mi sandwiches - one made with miso-braised short ribs and another made with smoked gouda and cranberry. It's probably not a great idea to be drinking whiskey out of a paper bag while you eat these, but we would be tempted to bring a flask of our favorite Koval product.

Food tickets cost between $9 and $15. The distillery tour, which starts at 7 p.m., costs $10. The whole evening, maxed out, will cost you $25 for two unique food experiences. That's a deal.
