Hmm… a local distillery that makes a gin. Why not! Our first from this place, written batch #16. With local ingredients and the juniper from Wakefield. Smells herbal and berry-ish like gin should. Oh wow, full flavour of these botanical beauties! So smooth, with a nice warming touch. The herbs just linger forever. This is such flavourful spirit… worth drinking alone.

Pelee Island Ecco VQA

This Canadian bubbly seems like a blend of Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois. Big orange nose at first, but when this calms down, the yeast mixes with the grapes to give this a fancy cheese hint. The taste has this little unbalacement with the yeast and fruity notes. The mouthfeel has a sharpness to it, almost bitter in the middle. The dryness is medium with all of this. Becomes a little too sweet with time. Bottle labels are fun and in a party mode at least.
