New sips to savour

Here are some exciting new products to check out this summer photo

Cabin Gin 2024 Green Label: Okanagan Spirits has just released the first in a new lineup of seasonal small-batch gins inspired by time spent at the family cabin and escapes to other places. It features hints of lemongrass, fresh ginger and Thai lime leaf, reminiscent of trips through Southeast Asia. It retails for $35 (for a 500 mL bottle), with at least two more in the series expected by the end of the year.

Alberta Distillers Rare Batch Issue No. 1: There’s not much info on this yet, but we’re pretty excited to try it anyway. It will be a limited-edition whisky from the “Distillery of the Decade”—which produces Alberta Premium, the world’s top-selling all-rye whisky—and is scheduled to hit shelves across Canada the last week of June.

J.P. Wisers 42-Year-Old: As you can imagine, only limited quantities are available of this 42-year-old expression from the Canadian whisky trailblazer. Aged in Speyside single malt casks, Canadian oak barrels and ex-bourbon barrels, it has rich, complex notes of dried fruits and English toffee, dark cherry, roasted nuts, rye, nutmeg and leather with a warm cinnamon finish. Part of The Decades Series, it will be available in June, retailing for $469.99.
