IN THE SPIRIT OF GIVING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, GIVE SPIRITS FROM VANCOUVER ISLAND

Victoria Gin was released to great acclaim

at the Fairmont Empress in Victoria in May

2008 and was launched in Toronto at

Camera Bar in May 2009.

Vic Gin is currently available in liquor stores,

bars, and restaurants in BC, Alberta, and

Ontario.

Find Vic Gin in BCL stores here, at the LCBO

here, and in Alberta stores here.

Select private stores in BC also sell 375 ml

bottles of Vic Gin, as well as our Oaken Gin

and Left Coast Hemp Vodka.

For other provinces, stay tuned.

Our Trialto reps are working hard on

distribution and you can always check their

site for updates.

our gin

Hand made in small batches from a wood-fired still on

Vancouver Island.

Vic Gin is Canada’s first premium gin.

juniper with notes of citrus, floral, and spice.

We distill it in small batches in a gleaming handmade

wood-fired copper potstill.

Only the middle part of each run, the “hearts”, is saved

for bottling.

The result is an intensely flavored spirit that is as

full-bodied and complex as a fine single-malt whisky.

Read more about our wild-gathered and organic

botanicals here.

Read Vic Gin press here.

Vic Gin is currently available in 750 ml bottles in BC and

Ontario and in 375 ml bottles at private retailers in BC

(+834465).

You can find everything at our Tasting Room.

Left Coast Hemp Vodka

Released in Spring 2010, our Left Coast Hemp Vodka is

distilled with the finest locally-grown organic hemp seed.

The rich silky texture is elicited by the smooth oils of the

hemp hearts.

Notes of hazelnut and a hint of spice are present.

The finish is long, clean and refreshing. BC sku 28126

Oaken Gin

We’ve taken Vic Gin — a youthful, award winning spirit —

and allowed it to mature gracefully in new American oak

barrels until it is amber in colour and beautifully smooth.

Behind the portrait of a more mature Queen Victoria is a

spirit that’s softened with vanilla notes from the oak, full

and buttery, with a caramel sweetness.  BC sku 131763

Twisted & Bitter aromatic bitters*

By appointment to our “Queen” (and Toronto launch darling)

Miss Conception, Twisted & Bitter was released late 2009.

What are people saying about Twisted & Bitter?

Check here.

You can currently find our Bitters at these fine retailers

and at many more across Canada soon.

Please check back!

*Bitters have been used for centuries as a cooking

ingredient and flavouring in drinks.

While bitters aren’t technically a spirit, they are made

with the help of our still.

Craigdarroch Whisky (working title*)

Besides alluding to a heavy dose of local history,

Craigdarroch means “oak of the rocks”.

It’s still fresh, but it’s going to be good.

How good?

Check out what people are saying here.

If you come to our Tasting Room we’ll give you a taste,

but we’re letting it grow up a bit before we push it out

of the barrel.

* Legally it’s only whisky after three years.

Watch out 2013!

Eau de vies

We have distilled wine (from our past life) with fabulous

results.

These spirits include: Eau de Merlot; Eau de Sauvignon

Blanc/Gamay Noir; Eau de Pinot Noir; and Eau de

They are available at our Tasting Room… over there in

the corner by the western guitar lightbox sculpture.
