High Horse Coffee Co.

Standard

Yaaaas! Loving this super fun coffee company High Horse Coffee Co. from Edmonton, aka EdmonChuck in my mind as my family is from there! This is some amazing coffee, I love all the varieties and the labels are hilarious! They have a solid line of complex and delicious coffee to choose from, with dark, medium, light and espresso blends. They are a local small batch roaster offering quality coffee from the finest smallholder farms across the world.

From an organic Colombian medium roast with notes of caramel and cocoa, to a South American dark roast with hints of cinnamon and smoke. An Ethiopian light roast with floral notes to a full bodied espresso or decaf. You’ll love their hilarious names and details on the bags, from Deadmonton, to Forty Below Zero as we all know how cold it gets in Edmonton. They’ve also got some fun merchandise to choose from. They offer free shipping for orders over $65 or free delivery in the Edmonton area! Click here for more info;

Three Ranges Brewing

Standard

Cheers to these delicious beers from up north in the small town of Valemount! Got this colourful 6-pack with all theses amazing beers from Three Ranges Brewing! This local BC brewery caught my eye with their hilariously named brewski’s and I loved how every can design was completely different. They’ve got a little something for everyone from a light Kolsch, Pilsner or IPA, to a Red, Brown or Porter. My fav has to be the Blonde Ale and ISA but I’m a big fan of everything I’ve tried so far of theirs!

I loved their start up story, veteran fella from Texas married a Canadian lady and fell in love with Valemount, beer lovers themselves they decided to delve into the industry and have churned out some del ious stuff so far! Excited to see what else they’ve got in store for us! Find out more here;

Mad Lab Distillery

Standard

I’ve been gushing over all the amazing local distilleries we have in Vancouver. Why was I ever crossing the border to get ‘the cheap stuff’ when we have ‘the amazing stuff’ right here? I first saw MadLab at BC Distillers last year and was blown away by the new and exciting stuff they were creating. A locally known small batch distillery that makes hand crafted spirits using local ingredients including their well known single malt whiskey, some basics including vodka and gin, along with some fun stuff like Kombucha Cordial. They’ve also got flavours like Cran-Orange and Blueberry that are super easy to pickup into a light and refreshing summertime cocktail. They’ve also got some killer cocktail series from their S’mores Old Fashioned that easy enough to just pour over ice around a campfire to the Blue Negroni made with their Amaro & Kombucha Cordial. They even have bitters including coffee and orange, which I put orange in the caesar above. Sooo good. They have tons of other kinds too though from Tomato to Pecan Pie! They even have Raki, which I’ve heard is a Turkish anise flavoured booze.

You can find their products in liquor stores throughout BC including Victoria and Whistler, and pouring in tons of restaurants and lounges, making for some perfect cocktails. Also, get free shipping across Canada for orders over $150! Find out more here;
