The craft distilling movement has exploded in British Columbia and Vancouver boasts some of the best local artisans creating award winning spirits. We visit three distilleries where we sample various handcrafted spirits made with local BC ingredients. We also get a private tour of the distilling facilities and learn from the distillers themselves how they create such boozy masterpieces. A great tour to learn more about how distilling is done, sample a variety of spirits, and pick up a bottle for later!
We start the tour in Yaletown at the Yaletown Distillery where we will sample two of their signature spirits; a crisp vodka and a London style gin. Here we get a private tour of the state-of-the-art distilling facilities and get an in depth lesson on the distilling procedure. We also have a small bite to eat from the attached restaurant, the Distillery Bar & Kitchen, recently named one of the top 10 distillery bars in the world! Next we head to Granville Island and visit the Liberty Distillery to sample three of their best selling 100% organic spirits: a fruity vodka, a complex gin, and an unusual white whiskey. Our final distillery is the The Odd Society Spirits. This unique East Vancouver stop is creating award winning spirits that combine old world traditions with new world ingredients. After a private tour of the distillery, we saddle up to their tasting bar for a much deserved cocktail!
