Valentine’s Day Cocktail Gift Boxes

As the month of love, February is a time to celebrate romance and Valentine’s Day! What would celebrating love be without a dreamy drink? This year, Cupid suggests that you surprise your sweetheart or sweetest friend with a unique cocktail themed gift box that includes all the ingredients to mix up drinks they’ll swoon over.  To help you raise a romantic toast, we are offering three Valentine’s Day cocktail gift boxes ranging between $50 to $102 which include bottles of spirits and mixing ingredients.

Add some spice to the celebration with a Dirty Renegade cocktail by mixing up our horseradish infused vodka – Renegade – along with brine of crock-cured-half-sours and gourmet smoked Sicilian olives.

Make it a juicy, red celebration with Sweet-Tart Crantini cocktail, shaken with our award-winning Vital Vodka, pure cranberry juice, and a balsamic vinegar of sultry Madagascar Vanilla and tangy Cara Cara oranges.

Say ‘I love you’ with luscious and rich flavours of coffee and chocolate in a Coffee Lover cocktail.  Warm their hearts with a combination of our coffee infused vodka – Double Vice, our bourbon barrel aged maple syrup – Great Eh, Republica Dark Angel Coffee, and chocolate bitters. This cocktail gift box comes complete with an assortment of chocolates and hot chocolate dunking spoons for some extra indulgence.

New Release - Renegade: Horseradish Infused Vodka

It's official! Our unique horseradish infused vodka - newly named and bottled as Renegade - is now available for your enjoyment and purchase from our Roots and Wings Distillery store (online and onsite at our Langley distillery tasting room) and select liquor stores throughout British Columbia.

Savoury cocktails have long been popular in Canada, especially as the ubiquitous Caesar was invented 50 years ago in our country.  But whether it's the Caesar or Bloody Mary, it's the requisites of vodka and the comfort of spice and heat that draw salty cocktail enthusiast to these drinks, not to mention all the fun add-on garnishes from maple bacon or smoked oysters to a plethora of pickled veggies! Inspired by a client's request and the opportunity to one-up the zesty cocktail game, we are pleased to create a unique horseradish-style vodka for all the folks that want a bit more zip in their sip!

Renegade (375 ml bottles) is now part of our family of spirits and is crafted in small batches with horseradish (sourced from a Fraser Valley farm) steeped in our Vital Vodka, made from our homegrown potatoes and corn. The name – Renegade - reflects its untamed nature, breaking away from the traditional sweet finish of vodka to deliver a layered profile of distinct earthy tones, a spike of heat and an aroma of fresh radish!

While this bold horseradish vodka is ideal for kicking up a spicy Caesar, Bloody Mary or Horseradish Sour, it's also great as a base for a Dirty Martini topped with smoked olives! If you’re adventurous - and we know you are - then try it out in your cooking, like a vodka cured salmon dish. Be a Renegade, break free from the norm!
