Review: Distillery tour& tasting

Yesterday we went to the Liberty Distillery on Granville Island to get a tour through their distillery and a tasting of the spirits they produce.

The distillery only opened about 7 months ago and they are only working with local suppliers, which is pretty cool. Since the tour started a little late we already had some cocktails in their attached tasting room. Afterwards our tour guide showed us the distillery and explained every of their steps. They are producing vodka, gin and some kind of whisky. She showed us the different steps to produce each spirit and all the machinery they need. She as well gave us a small tasting of each of the spirits, which some of us liked better than others. (3 shots of different spirits just after lunch time were kind of hard to take)

After the tasting all of us had another cocktail outside and some even bought small bottles of what we just tasted.  We were lucky it didn’t rain anymore after ww were finished and so we used the chance were finished and so we used the chance to have a nice walk over Granville Island and enjoyed the rest of the sunday.

Hope all of you have a great start in this week and we see you on wednesday at the PuB Night.

P.S. Our office will not be opened on 1st of August, which is the friday before the long weekend.

Details for Victoria Trip – 26th&27th

Our monthly overnight trip to Victoria is getting nearer and nearer, so we want to give you some details about what we are going to do while we are in Victoria.

  • We’ll arrive in our hostel at about 12am on Saturday, where we will just drop off our luggage and then grab some lunch in one of the pubs that Tim recommended (Canoe Brewpub). Lets cross our fingers for nice weather so that we can sit on the great patio with view on the harbour.
  • Afterwards we’ll explore Victoria together and check out some famous sightseeing attractions, as for example the Inner harbour, Old town, Parliament building, Fisherman’s wharf and some more. If the weather is nice we can as well go for a nice walk through the famous Beacon Hill Park.
  • For dinner we will go to another highly recommended Brewpub which is called Spinnaker, right over the bridge. Their menu offers a lot of snacks (“perfect with a pint”), soups or salads as well as pasta, pizza & burger or “fish &chips”, but they recommend not to eat too much, but to leave some space for their famous dessert. We can either stay there for the evening or just go to another pub or club.
  • On sunday there are a lot of different outdoor activities that you can do, and everybody can just choose whatever he or she likes to do. There are for example:
  • Whale watching
  • Kayaking
  • Zip-lining
  • SUP
  • Bike rental

Please check out the different opportunities, so that we can discuss on saturday what everybody wants to do and then give you all the information about it and how to get there etc.

  • Afterwards we’ll all meet at our hostel again to pick up our luggage. We’ll have late lunch/ early dinner/ snacks together and then head back to Vancouver. We’ll be back in Vancouver at 9-ish.

You can sign up for this fun trip in our office until friday.

If you have nay questions about the trip don’t hesitate to ask us!!
