Long Table Distillery

1451 Hornby St, Vancouver BC V6Z 1W8 - 604 266 0177

Vancouver’s first micro-distillery, Long Table was Co-founded in 2010 by Head Distiller Charles Tremewen and Partner Rita.  As ginsmiths their focus is on producing handcrafted, premium-quality GINs AND unique spirits, rooted in a passion for following traditional distillation practices on a small-batch scale.

In each batch, Long Table brings together 100-per-cent Canadian grain-based alcohol, a range of organic and natural ingredients, locally foraged botanicals and West Coast-inspired recipes that have built the distillery’s reputation for offering an award-winning and critically acclaimed lineup of gins and seasonal spirits.

Long Table’s custom-built, 300-litre copper-pot still is the beating heart of an operation that consistently micro-distills a celebrated collection of premium spirits that reveal bold character and refined taste. Each handcrafted batch tells a story of unique and often subtle flavour notes that are derived from skillfully crafted proprietary recipes.

Long Table’s fresh, organic and natural ingredients are handpicked by a network of expert wild foragers in local mountains or select sources from around the world. Even the water Long Table uses is sourced from British Columbia’s pristine Coast Mountain Range.

VSOP Reserve "Pairs of Pears" Brandy (limited release) 

Rarely does an opportunity to acquire an exquisite five-year aged pear brandy come your way.  We secured this fine spirit through a cooperative relationship with the folks at Deep Cove Brewery and Distillery.  Our Master Distiller, Charles Tremewen was approached with an offer to transfer three barrels of brandy to Long Table Distillery because Deep Covers distillery license would only permit them produce spirits made from BC agricultural inputs.   As it turns out this unique spirit was distilled from Oregon grown Bartlett Pears and by regulation was subject to disposal to retain their license. When both distillers shared a tasting of this brandy they recognized that to discard it, was out of the question. The result was a cooperative bond established between two of BC’s micro-distilleries to work together and save, what we believe, is an outstanding example of a VSOP Reserve Pear Brandy we know you will enjoy.

This Limited-Edition Reserve Pear Brandy was rested in 2009 in Pinot Gris barrels.  Today this beautifully balanced spirit has a nose of honeysuckle, pear drop, and vanilla sweetness.  Up front on the palate there’s a touch of oak and honey, followed by a gentle vanilla that fades into pear and sweet alcohol warmth.

Amaro No. 1 – Linnaeus          (limited release) 

In making our first Amaro, we worked in collaboration with The Apothecary Bitters Company to create what we believe is a truly outstanding liqueur. It has forward notes of tobacco, vanilla and citrus with an herbal finish. The combination of the spirits we distilled from 100-per-cent BC organic merlot grape pomace and an infusion of 28 carefully selected botanicals results in a one-of-a-kind, traditionally styled Amaro and now, the first to be made in BC.

Tradizionale Limoncello            (limited release) 

Our Limoncello was inspired by several tastings we had during a visit to Italy’s Cinque Terre.  Following the age-old Italian tradition of using honey — not sugar syrup — and fresh, hand-peeled lemon zest, we were able create this timeless liqueur. The blackberry honey we use is owed to our relationship with Hives for Humanity, a local non-profit social venture that supports community connections through beekeeping. The resulting combination is a naturally sweetened and traditional Italian Limoncello.
