Rare and Hard to Find

“things that are hard to find, are rare and precious”   Talha Zahid

Seeking liquor products for that special gift or occasion can be a real challenge on your own. At Aligra, we love challenges!

So, we’ve set up a special page for Rare & Hard to Find items that might fit that bill. Some,  we’ve already found. So if you see it here, it’s likely one of a kind too. Please send us an email or give us a call to reserve it. If you don’t,  call us anyway, and perhaps whatever you’re looking for, we’ll do our best to find it! - Alison & Grant

Kung Hey Fat Choy!

Lunar Year of the Rabbit begins January 22, 2023

Chinese New Year 2023 is The Year of the Water Rabbit which commences January 22, 2023!  Based on the Lunar Calendar, New Year's Day is the first day of the New Moon.

Some interesting superstitions -  don't wash your hair, or your clothes on New Year's Day - you will wash away any good luck!  Also don't do any sweeping as you will sweep away good luck!

The sign of Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture.  2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.  The upcoming Year of the Rabbit, however, embodies yin, the passive principle of the universe, which manifests in relaxation, fluidity, quietness and contemplation.  The overall energy of 2023 is likely to be gentle and calm, with people looking “for a more balanced life,” . There could also be more movement and traveling, “just like that of a swift rabbit.”

We've put together some Wine Pairing suggestions for enjoying a Chinese Meal or some takeout from your favourite Chinese restaurant. Some people drink Jasmine tea or beer with their many tasty dishes, here's what we recommend for wine lovers!

 

 

                                                                                       WINE PAIRINGS FOR CHINESE FOOD

 Prefer White Wine?    Choose wines with High Acidity and hint of sweetness

          RIESLING  -  CHENIN BLANC  -  VINHO VERDE

Prefer a Red Wine?  Choose a wine lower in Tannins with high fruitiness

       GAMAY -   BEAUJOLAIS -  LAMBRUSCO

White wines are best with the fried, salty choices   & Red wines with the heavier, dark saucy choices!

                                                                           Kung Hey Fat Choy!  Happy New Year!
