Review: Last Mountain Spicy Vodka

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 25, 2017

Last Mountain Distillery is Saskatchewan’s first micro distillery. It is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Colin and Meredith Schmidt. Colin recently sent me a sampling of three of the distilleries newest products, Apple Pie Moonshine, Sweet Tea Vodka and Spicy Vodka. All of these products are made from a wheat based distillate and (according to the distillery website), Last Mountain’s Spicy Vodka is naturally infused with chili and cayenne peppers. Each bottle has a pepper inside increasing the intensity of the heat over time. The spirit is bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my review of the Last Mountain Spicy Vodka.

Review: Last Mountain Spicy Vodka

“… When I brought my glass to my nose I noticed that it brought clean lightly spicy scents into the breezes which perhaps lulled me into a false sense of security. I say this because the first sip brought an intense peppery spice across the palate and that spicy feeling builds rather than diminishes …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with a recipe for the classic Canadian Cocktail, the Caesar.

Review: Last Mountain Single Cask 100 % Wheat Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 15, 2017

last-mountain-wheat-sam_2952The Last Mountain Distillery is Saskatchewan’s first micro distillery. It is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Colin and Meredith Schmidt. After Colin left his hockey career with the Edmonton Oilers behind, he and his wife, Meredith began to look for business opportunities in Saskatchewan, and the idea of starting up their own micro-distillery still appealed strongly to both of them. To make a long story short, in August of 2010, the ambitions and hard work of Colin and Meredith paid off when they opened Saskatchewan’s first micro-distillery, in Lumsden, Saskatchewan, called the Last Mountain Distillery.

Last Mountain’s Single Cask Wheat Whisky is Saskatchewan’s first Single Cask Wheat Whisky, and it is produced from wheat grown at the Brewster Farm in Earl Grey, SK. The whisky is drawn from a single cask once used bourbon barrel, non blended and non chill filtered. It is bottled at 45 % alcohol by volume.

Here is a link to my full review of this wonderful craft whisky:

Review: Last Mountain Single Cask 100 % Wheat Whisky

“… The initial nose is enticing with woodspice, butterscotch, honeycomb and vanilla as well as yummy accents which remind me of graham wafers dipped in corn syrup. I also notice very light baking spices with cinnamon and hints coarse yellow/brown sugar. For a young whisky, this dram is surprisingly complex. …”

Please enjoy my review of Saskatchewan’s first Single Cask Whisky which include my cocktail suggestion, The Last Saskatchewan Pirate.

Chimo!
