Aligra Wine and Spirits has been proud to be the exclusive vendor for Aalborg Spirits in Alberta for 6 years. We’ve worked hard with the Danish community and Aalborg distilleries to bring this unique selection of spirits to the province. Right now, we supply Aalborg Taffel, Jubilæum, and Gammeldansk which will all be here in a few weeks. We are excited to be exploring other products, as well. Thank you for your continued support!
Another excellent evening. We sampled gins from around the world, including one from our own back yard in Nisku!

2 Cyrus Noble Small Batch paired with anything chocolate,
3 Eagle Rare Single Barrel paired with chocolate chip cookies and shortbread.
