Spirits & Cocktails / Light Food Pairings

The Mixers Cocktail Club is an event for connecting with your friends over the best-tasting therapy around—cock­tails!

Classic favorites as well as new sips will inspire novices and enthusiasts alike to build up their bar vocabulary and taste outside their comfort zone.

So whether you’ve been curious about absinthe rinses or want to bone up on your bitters, The Mixers Cocktail Club gives you the perfect excuse to pull out your shaker and dip into the art of at-home mixology.

For our first event, we will be featuring spirits from De Vine Spirits!

De Vine Spirits is reviving the tradition of farm distilling on Vancouver Island. DeVine has been an organically farmed vineyard and winery for seven years, so when we decided to license a distillery it made sense to look close to home and see what we could turn into spirits. Our own wine grapes provided a brilliant base for our Gin, to which we added Wildgathered juniper, lavender, spruce tips and 9 other botanicals. Vineyard… Orchard… Field… Hive… Our labels reflect our philosophy of farm distilling by depicting the ingredients and stories behind each spirit. If it can be fermented, it can be distilled. We’re particularly excited about our Whisky program. The barley for our single malt is not only grown here in Saanich, but malted locally too. We mash and ferment it ourselves, then distill it twice in our vintage German copper potstill Brunhilde . Finally, weage the new make spirit in once used Bourbon barrels, in the style of the finest Scotch whiskies.

*Classic Gin Martini with Mild Hummus and Pita Chips

*Old Fashion with Pork and Apple Phyllo Seasoned with Chipotle

*Cuba Libra with Tuna Tataki on a Rice Cracker with Citrus Soy Sauce
