Coven Vodka

Best Vodka Alberta Beverage Awards 2015

Exceptionally smooth with great texture displaying subtle notes of caramel and vanilla brought forth by its barley malt base.


Empiric Gin

The "Empiric” is a truly west-coast style gin using a unique array of herbs and botanicals found here. While possessing flavours from juniper and coriander, as with all gins, The Empiric, offers a unique deviation from the more common place ‘London dry’ style with robust citrus notes imparted from lemon verbena (vs traditional lemon and orange rinds). Anise-hyssop fennel, rosemary, lavender and hops also present.


Baba Yaga

Baba Yaga Genuine Absinthe crafted using old world techniques but with west-coast influence. Aged in a myriad of botanicals, which are grown in the Arbutus Distillery gardens, adding other dimensions than strictly anise and imparting a genuine natural colour.

Baba Yaga Absinthe is naturally steeped and aged in various herbs giving its beautiful chartreuse colour,  and may naturally precipitate chlorophyl upon light exposure.
