We often want to eat local, but what about drinking local? Granville Island’s own The Liberty Distillery is the only distillery of its kind in BC to make all of their spirits from local, certified organic wheat and barley that is grown in Vernon and Armstrong, BC.
Specializing in vodka, whiskey, and gin, The Liberty Distillery’s cocktail lounge offers an old world atmosphere, having brought in an original bar from Philadelphia circa the 1800’s and using the highest quality traditional distillation equipment from Germany.
Their spirits include: Truth Vodka, the perfect base for a classic Martini or a lively cocktail; Endeavour Gin, with a clean, fresh, long lasting, and smooth finish; perfect for preparing classic G&T’s and sipping martinis; Endeavour Origins, a Gin with a rich, long lasting, and smooth finish; Railspur No. 1 White, an artisan spirit that has an amazing ‘mix-ability’ factor, with a clean and pure finish that is powerfully complex; Railspur No. 2 White- Wildflower Honey , with a rich and pure honey finish that is powerfully complex; and Trust Whiskey , Liberty Distillery’s single pot triple distilled Aged Whiskey.
Stop by for a tour, tasting, and a sip or two in their cocktail lounge at 1494 Old Bridge Road on Granville Island. Liberty is open Sunday to Thursday from 11:00am to 7:00pm; Friday and Saturdaay from 10:00am to 8:00pm; and 11:00am to 7:00pm on holidays.
