The second annual Canadian celebration of all things gin, Ginapalooza, hit bars across Vancouver in June, with a public vote on the best bespoke beverages served.
Tearing up the city’s cocktail scene right now, Royal Dinette’s Kaitlyn Stewart took first place with Rock, which included lavender honey mead and Concord grape vinegar.
Tied for the runner-up spot was Justin Taylor’s Cascade Room entry, Bear Essentials.
The other runner-up was Yew Restaurant’s Firefighter, created by Phil Srigley.
Shaun Layton’s craft Juniper G&T came in third.
