Odd Society Spirits is now open distributing craft spirits to restaurants, bars and private liquor stores in Vancouver and selling retail from their on-site tasting room. The latest in a flood of artisan distilleries after the change in law earlier in the year, Odd Society Spirits has scored a 'Craft Designation':
The B.C. government defines a craft distillery as one which uses 100% B.C. agricultural goods that are fermented and distilled onsite, and produces less than 50, 000L per year. Meeting these guidelines allows Odd Society Spirits to sell direct to bars, restaurants and private liquor stores without a markup from the B.C. Liquor Distribution Board.
You can buy East Van Vodka and the team are about to unveil a limited batch of Crème de Cassis in collaboration with Hervé Martin, owner of the French Table and former chef to King Leopold III of Belgium. In approximately one month, you'll be able to buy Wallflower Gin made with coastal botanicals. A whisky is currently being barrel-aged and will be ready for distribution in three years.
The tasting room is open Thursday through Sunday from 1PM to 7PM. Tours of the distillery are offered every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 4PM, with no prior reservations required. Tastings and tours are complimentary.
