Mother’s Day Specials At The Distillery

Moms are the best! So, we’re celebrating them on Mother’s Day (May 11) with two specials to treat moms well at the Roots and Wings Distillery.  

All mothers (and the women accompanying them) will receive a free tasting of our spirits AND you can raise a toast to moms with our Mother’s Day featured cocktail – The Ginger Rose – in The Drinkery.  This refreshing tipple, featured at $9, is made with our Jackknife Gin mixed with cardamom rose syrup from Organic Fair and ginger beer syrup from Rootside.

Mother’s Day is extra special for us now that Baby Lewis is in our family. With three children in a busy household, we get how time is precious.  And so, delight the special ladies you love by spending time together.  Make it memorable and different with a feast for the senses on an outing through Langley’s Circle Farm Tour and drop by to visit us at #21 stop for our Mother’s Day specials.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms!

Distillery Tasting Room Reopens

The Roots and Wings Distillery's tasting room has reopened for the weekends! Thank you for your patience as we closed during January to update and refresh the interior in preparation for more products, new services, extra seating and tables.

How time flies! It was around this time two years ago that we opened our distillery with our first handcrafted batch of Vital Vodka. From there, everything just took off! Vital Vodka won the Bronze medal winner in the 2018 International SIP Awards and we launched five more new spirits - Double Vice, Renegade, Rebel, Sidekick, and Jackknife Gin - with various seasonal infusions in between. We've also participated in a multitude of events, worked with many community partners, and countless visitors have come to experience our craft distillery and enjoy our products which are now found in a long list of private liquor stores across B.C. We couldn't be more grateful for all the support! 

With increasing interest in our distillery and spirits, we're expanding and have received our AIP (approval in principal) for a lounge and special event endorsement; so, our tasting room will soon be more tasty and social once we start serving cocktails and canapes, as well as host more events. Stay tuned, we'll announce the launch of our lounge menu shortly!

Tasting room hours: Saturdays and Sundays, 12 - 5 pm. Drop by soon!

Craft Cocktail Recipes for You and Your Imbibe Tribe

It is the season to be crafty; as in crafting various cocktails! From corporate Christmas parties where you are told to be careful and not tell your micromanaging boss how you feel about them, and to the dysfunctional family get-together where sipping a cocktail or beverage of choice is the only thing keeping you from getting into a political disagreement with uncle Larry.

It’s always good to know how to mix up a crafty cocktail or two to impress that boss of yours or keep uncle Larry quiet for a minute or two.

Then of course there are those cocktail parties you want to go to … the ones with your Imbibe Tribe; the family made of friends that always make you laugh, are there for you no matter what and can bring out the best in the holiday season.

For these fine folks, you should want to show off your cocktail making skills. So, if you haven’t already visited our website we now have a cocktails page. There are lots of different ideas that won’t cost a fortune and can probably be made with ingredients that you already have at home.

For you beer fans, may I suggest the Midnight Mocha made with a nice dark chocolate porter, some Double Vice Coffee Infused Vodka and Chocolate bitters. Delicious and warming while you cozy up to the fireplace.

Happy cocktailing from My imbibe Tribe to yours!
