Given the recent changes to regulations involved with British Columbia liquor laws, the province is now bearing witness to an explosion of distillers launching innovative ventures, particularly around the Lower Mainland.
This evolution in policy moves to allow distillers to be legally able to sell spirits at farmers’ markets and secondary tasting rooms, as well as in grocery stores. The changes also include a more open approach to the universally popular happy hour.
Target objectives around these government mandates include growth of the local economy and an increased focus on British Columbia as a travel destination. What this means for visitors and Vancouverites alike is a thriving craft distillery scene that better supports local entrepreneurs in successfully producing and marketing small batch spirits.
These distillers have risen from a range of backgrounds, but they all share a common vision in creating quality liquor from the best ingredients that the province has to offer.
