The corn and potato base gives Encore Gin a smooth and delicate underlying mouth feel while the White Tea, Peony, and Rose adds some refreshing floral notes of spring. The flavour of Juniper berries is subtle and mellow, delivering a less piney but more modern style of gin. Encore Gin's light body and floral-forward accents will transform classic to fresh new cocktails, from the iconic G&T, Martini, Tom Collin, and Gin Fizz to a Negroni or Ginger Rogers. Available in 750 ml.
For fans of garlic-dill flavours, this infused vodka will punch up your savoury cocktail game! Get your pickle fix in drinks like the Caesar, Bloody Mary, dirty martini or any pickle-tinis or pickle-ritas with the tangy-briny highlights of our Dill PIckled Vodka.The Dill Pickled Vodka is made by naturally infusing our award winning Vital Vodka with local garlic and dill.Cocktails made with this special vodka pair well with salty snacks and dishes, plus an unlimited assortment of garnishes including sour cornichons, grilled prawns, and crispy bacon! Available in 375 ml.
Back in 2017 at the Roots and Wings Distillery, we set aside some pure corn spirit in a new charred barrel and waited for it to mature into a handsome young bourbon style spirit. Johnny Handsome is ready to come out to play. Unveiled on November 22, 2019, he is rough around the edges but deeply refined kind of spirit with the soul of a centenarian but the body of a barrel-chested Viking that will knock you off your feet. This new whiskey is best enjoyed neat or with a splash of water. Available in 375 ml. Temporarily out of stock; check back online.
We've taken our young whiskey, Rebel, and expertly married it with sugar and bitters in classic Old Fashioned style, then tucked it away in a barrel for months so the flavours can romance each other into a perfectly harmonized spirit. Enjoy over ice and garnish with orange zest and a cherry on top! Available in 375 ml.
Released in March 2020, the 5th Element Absinthe celebrates the bygone era of a historically significant elixir derived from anise, fennel and wormwood (plant), which gained popularity in the Belle Epoque period. Often referred to as the Green Fairy or Green Goddess, absinthe’s seductive flavour inspired artists and writers like Van Gogh, Picasso and Hemingway. The anise-forward 5th Element Absinthe is elegantly dry and crisp with a silky mouthfeel and aromatic flavour. It’s easy to appreciate in cocktails like a classic Sazerac, Inside Job, Corpse Reviver, Chrysanthemum, and The Sun Also Rises (Hemingway inspired). Or enjoy it traditionally as a shot by dripping cold water over a sugar cube atop a slotted spoon. Available in 375 ml.
