Nothing says summer like a tasty cocktail! Join us on our newest tour, Vancouver Distillery Tour, where we sip and sample numerous award winning spirits and get a behind the scenes look at the distilling procedure. We have partnered with three of the very best distilleries in the city.
1. The Long Table Distillery (1451 Hornby St)
“Our hand crafted 300 liter copper pot still may be small, but it’s the heart of our operation and consistently micro-distills a unique collection of premium spirits that reveal bold character and refined taste. Each handcrafted batch tells a story of its unique and often subtle taste characteristics derived from our skillfully crafted proprietary recipes. The organic and natural ingredients we use are carefully chosen for their freshness, often handpicked by our network of expert wild foragers in our local mountains or, from fairly traded sources from around the world. Even the water we use is sourced from British Columbia’s pristine Coast Mountain Range.”
Off The Eaten Track Pick: The Bourbon Barrelled Gin. This Gin ages in hand picked Bourbon barrels from Washington which lends a wonderful vanilla and caramel aspect to the finished product.
2. Yaletown Distilling (1131 Mainland St)
“After almost 20 years of making fresh beer at the Yaletown Brewing Company and pioneering the craft beer movement in Vancouver, it was an organic expansion for the Mark James Group to lead the way in artesian distilling. Launched on Repeal Day December 5th, 2013 marking the anniversary for the end of prohibition, the Yaletown Distilling Company is honouring the tradition of distilling by producing premium handcrafted spirits.”
Off The Eaten Track Pick: The Eau De Vie. This fruit brandy is made from Okanagan grapes and would be killer poured over ice cream.
3. Odd Society Spirits (1725 Powell St)
“Odd Society is a small-batch craft distillery in the heart of East Vancouver that is dedicated to combining old world distilling traditions with new world ingredients and ingenuity to create a family of spirits that entice and intrigue.”
Off The Eaten Track Pick: East Van Vodka. Made from 100% malted barley from Prince George, this award winning vodka has the most unique taste that makes an insane martini!
