Thanksgiving Weekend in Canada is approaching October 6-8, 2018. Be prepared!
Another excellent evening. We sampled gins from around the world, including one from our own back yard in Nisku!
We had a great crew in attendance, among them some dedicated bee keepers! The dialogue was lively, and it was a treat to be with folks with such good knowledge.

Right now, we supply Aalborg Taffel, Jubilæum, and we are excited to be exploring other products, as well. Please note, Aalborg have advised us that there will be no more Gammeldansk coming to Alberta for the foreseeable future.

Only 333 bottles produced of this very limited bottling, however we managed to secure a few bottles. An intense nose with dried peach, raisin and toffee caramel notes. On the palate intense spice and heat from the high alcohol content but this is rounded out by oily, earthy, brown sugar and vanilla flavours. Try it straight and then add a few drops of water to watch it open up. A complex rum that needs to be enjoyed slowly and thoughtfully, I rate it a 8.5/10. $164.99
