Domaines Piron Morgon La Chanaise Beaujolais


The Gamay grape produces incredibly easy-drinking red wine with fresh and explosive fruit, with little to no tannins and a purple colour it is the grape used in making the adored Beaujolais wines. The aromas and flavours are amazingly grapey with lovely notes of cherry and plum. This is the ideal wine for anyone trying wine for the first time. Lovely when slightly chilled for a barbecue.

Inniskillin Vidal Icewine


Icewine is made by picking grapes that are frozen on the vine and than pressing them before they thaw. Because much of the water in the grapes is frozen, the resulting juice is concentrated, rich in flavour and high in sugar and acid. The wine is extremely sweet, yet balanced by high acidity. These delectable sweet nectars are certainly capable of being the dessert but are also marvelous with fruity desserts.

Polar Ice is crafted from the purest water and grains, quadruple distilled and triple-filtered for a legendary clean, smooth taste. Try mixing this award-winning Canadian vodka into your favourite vodka cocktails.

Iceberg Vodka


Iceberg Vodka a brilliantly clear and remarkably complex vodka made from 12,000 year old icebergs that break off from Greenland and head south to Newfoundland. The melted water is blended with triple distilled spirit made from Ontario sweet corn. The result is an exquisite smooth taste, ideal for blending with virtually all fruit juice or spirits.

Are you looking to add a little sweetness to your vodka but don’t want a sugar overload? Try adding fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice!

McManis Petite Sirah


The McManis family has been farming in California’s northern interior for four generations. They produce a range of wine from grapes sourced from ten estate vineyards. McManis is known and loved for their big bold and intensely fruity wines. At McManis the grape benefits from the hotter, dry climate of the San Joaquin valley to achieve perfect ripeness.

Deep purple in the glass with pronounced aromas of very ripe blackberries, accompanied by mocha, caramel and vanilla. The berry aromas of the nose come through in the taste; the wine is very rich and mouth coating with lots of sweet vanilla and dark chocolate on the finish. Pairs nicely with ribs.

Hoegaarden


The original Belgian Wheat Beer. Almost 600 years ago in the Belgian village of Hoegaarden, a band of monks experimented by adding oddball botanicals from halfway around the world to their traditional wheat beer. Crafty before craft beer was such a big deal.

Hoegaarden is a top fermented white beer spiced with coriander and curacao orange peel. It has a heady, spicy nose with a soft and delightful sour/sweet taste. Hoegaarden gets its taste from three key factors. Firstly, it’s unfiltered – hence the milky or hazy appearance and thicker texture. The recipe is lower in hops and finally, it’s bottle conditioned. Bottle conditioned simply means the already fermented beer has a second round of yeast added to the bottle to create carbonation. It looks like it’ll go down creamy, but zingy carbonation and spicy citrus kick make for a dry finish.

Try pairing this Belgian beer with Salad with citrus dressing, Grilled White Fish, or Guacamole.

Ketel One Vodka


Ketel One is a liquor brand of the Nolet distillery in Schiedam, the Netherlands. Ketel One Vodka is distilled from 100% wheat in copper pot stills, filtered over loose charcoal, and rests in tile-lined tanks until ready. Ketel One is named after the original copper pot still.

Try mixing Ketel One Vodka into this simple cocktail recipe for a Bar Car:

  • 2 oz. Ketel One Vodka, Splash of Martini Dry Vermouth and a splash of Olive Brine, 2 Olives and 1 Pearl Onion.
  • Add a splash of dry vermouth into a glass. Swirl around to coat the bowl and dump access. Add vodka and olive brine into a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with 2 olives and 1 pearl onion.

Oyster Bay Chardonnay


Oyster Bay Chardonnay truly captures the character of Marlborough with pure, incisive, ripe fruit flavours. A combination of barrel and tank fermentation and the stirring of yeast lees achieves maximum softness, integration and texture. This wine has concentrated aromas and flavours of ripe citrus and stone fruit balanced with subtle oak, and a creamy texture to finish. A sublime expression of fruit purity from Marlborough’s unique cool climate and soil.

Oyster Bay Chardonnay pairs perfectly with a caesar salad, oven roasted turkey, or seafood pasta.
