Review: Park Distillery Glacier Rye

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 22, 2018

Park Distillery  is located in the town of Banff, Alberta. The facility is not just a distillery, it is also a Restaurant and bar which opened in May of 2015 shortly after the Provincial government introduced new regulations which allowed for Craft distilleries to operate. Located high in the Mountains of Banff Provincial Park, the Distillery proudly serves regionally produced food in its restaurant, and local (sourced from high-altitude family farms in the Alberta foothills) grains to produce their spirits.

Park Distillery Glacial Rye is produced on the distillery’s 600L Kothe Pot – Twin Column Hybrid Still. It is made from 100% Alberta Rye and glacial water which originated at six high glaciers in the Rocky Mountains. This water gains minerality as it travels across rich limestone deposits.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Park Distillery Glacier Rye

“… The nose is very interesting with scents of mushy banana and plantain rising alongside zesty citrus notes and fresh spicy rye grain. I also notice hints of baked squash and a very light astringency (which is expected when one examines unaged spirits).  All in all I am quite pleased …”

Please enjoy my review which contains the suggested servings, Back Country Tea, and the Johnson Canyon Smash.

Chimo!

Review: Park Distillery Classic Vodka

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 8, 2018

Park Distillery  is located in the town of Banff, Alberta. The facility is not just a distillery, it is also a restaurant and bar which opened in May of 2015 shortly after the Provincial government introduced new regulations which allowed for Craft distilleries to operate. Located high in the Mountains of Banff Provincial Park, the Distillery proudly serves regionally produced food in its restaurant, and local (sourced from high-altitude family farms in the Alberta foothills) grains to produce their spirits.

Park Distillery Vodka is produced on the distillery’s 600L Kothe Pot – Twin Column Hybrid Still. It is made from 100% Alberta Triticale (hybrid of wheat and rye) and glacial water which originated at six high glaciers in the Rocky Mountains. This water gains minerality as it travels across rich limestone deposits. The spirit is bottled at 40 % alcohol by volume.

When I tasted the Park Distillery Vodka for the first time, I conducted a side by side tasting with several other locally produced craft vodkas. From that line-up, I chose the two which I felt were the best spirits and decided to write full reviews for them.

This is the review for the Park Distillery Vodka.

Review: Park Distillery Classic Vodka

“… I felt the vodka brought a very light minty aroma into the air which was combined with a sort of lemony scent. There was also light impressions of grain spice.  When sipped the vodka was quite flavourful with mint, grain spice , lemon and a light vegetal flavour …”

Please enjoy my review which includes my cocktail suggestion, the Lemon-Lime Vodka Gimlet.

Chimo!

Review: Park Distillery Alpine Dry Gin

Posted by Arctic Wolf on March 25, 2018

Park Distillery  is located in the town of Banff, Alberta. The facility is not just a distillery, it is also a Restaurant and bar which opened in May of 2015 shortly after the Provincial government introduced new regulations which allowed for Craft distilleries to operate. Located high in the Mountains of Banff Provincial Park, the Distillery proudly serves regionally produced food in its restaurant, and local (sourced from high-altitude family farms in the Alberta foothills) grains to produce their spirits.

Park Distillery Alpine Gin is produced on the distillery’s 600 Litre Kothe Pot – Twin Column Hybrid Still. It is produced from typical London Dry Gin botanical’s ( Juniper, Coriander, Lemon Peel, Orange Peel, Orris Root, Licorice, Angelica, and Cinnamon) with the addition of Alberta foraged Engelmann Spruce Tips.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Park Distillery Alpine Dry Gin

“… Within the juniper scent is a light presence of licorice and bright citrus (in particular orange and lemon peel). I notice impressions of coriander and surprisingly a touch of ginger in the breezes (I suspect the ginger is in reality a touch of cinnamon which is expressing itself as ginger because of the presences ot the other botanicals) …”

Please enjoy my review which includes my cocktail suggestion, the Northern Lady.

Chimo!
