I visited Victoria B.C. over the New Year and discovered the wonderful world of Canadian gin. This is not your garden variety juniper gin.
  1. Ampersand
    6a088f72 6437 449d 9eee b1905e6ec36f
    If you prefer your gin to have a clean taste with only subtle botanical flavors then this one should be at the top of your list. Well filtered and extremely smooth as are all the gins on this list. http://www.ampersanddistilling.com/products.php
  2. Endeavor
    Fe1db20f 71ea 4854 92d2 febe7ec03d1d
    Barrel aged making it slightly sweet with notes of citrus and spice. A modern take on an old world genever. http://thelibertydistillery.com/spirits.html
  3. Schramm
    6d9d3eb5 88cc 4483 b373 67aee9512b25
    Distilled from potatoes, and complimented by eight botanicals including rosemary, cinnamon bark and hops. http://www.pembertondistillery.ca/gin.html
  4. Stump

    Unlike anything I have ever tasted. It actually does taste like a Pacifc Northwest forest, as claimed. Botanicals include cascade hops, grand fir, bay laurel, coriander, and lavender. So good. http://fermentorium.ca
  5. Defender Island
    F7fd9b28 f647 46d3 bbba 0790130b2dd1
    Easily my favorite. Wild sage and flame charred rosemary give it complex characteristics that put it in it's own category. If you drink scotch than this is the gin for you. http://legenddistilling.com/products/defender-island
