This will be Fairmont Hot Springs Resort’s 3rd annual event (April 21, 2018).  Featuring local distilleries Bohemian Spirits from Kimberley, Monashee Spirts from Revelstoke and Taynton Bay Spirits from Invermere as well as other BC craft distilleries.

Bohemian Spirits hand-crafted, hand-corked offerings, including their Vagabond Vodka (using locally-sources wheat and water in Kimberley), Limited Gin (using botanicals in the wild – juniper, fir tips, rose-hip, cottonwood, Oregon-grape and huckleberry), Colossal Gin, their Eclipse Coffee Liqueur and their newest creation the Forester Single Malt Oak Aged Gin.

Monashee Spirits distills their spirits by hand using local ingredients, sustainable methods and pure mountain spring water. They are a very small family run business in Revelstoke, BC.
