Well-crafted spirits are the essential building blocks of cocktails. At Victoria Distillers, these ‘liquid bar tools’ are made with one, pretty basic goal. We want people everywhere to be able to make great drinks. We know bartenders are the cocktail experts. They understand that a great drink requires spirits that are singular and distinctive in taste. So we collaborate with incredibly talented mixologists to create both classic and innovative cocktail spirits, using the world’s best-tasting water (found right here on the Canadian west coast), and the best ingredients from around the world. As one of Canada’s oldest, small-batch spirits companies, we’re influenced by history and driven by innovation. For us, there’s no other way.
Our waterfront distillery in Sidney includes a seasonal space for the public to kick back and experience our spirits in inventive cocktails. For visitors, the experience of touring the distillery and tasting our spirits neat can carry on in our lounge, as they watch bartenders mix, muddle, and shake.
Our on-site lounge will also be a site of innovation, as our bartenders experiment with new cocktails and feedback to the development of pioneering spirits. In addition to our full cocktail lounge menu, we will be offering a monthly feature sheet highlighting staff favourites and new cocktails they’ve been diligently working on. Come for a visit, try our seasonal cocktails and purchase everything you need to create and play at home!
