Canada, and Quebec in particular, is becoming quite the hotbed for local, quality spirits that are sweeping awards from countries that have been producing spirits for longer than Canada has been a country!
One such spirit is the Quebec-based Quartz vodka. So what makes this vodka stand out from the rest? Like any quality product, the ingredients make the final product. Quartz uses Eska water, one of the purest water sources in the world. The water is naturally quartz-filtered. The vodka is micro-distilled five times to render an exceptionally smooth taste. And it is then cryo-treated and micro filtered through quartz. The result of all that work? Award-winning vodka!
The Divas love their gin. We make no qualms about that. But we don’t like to discriminate so we’re always open to trying new cocktails, and we’re lucky that our friends are supportive of our drinking habits. We love local products, and when we came across a cocktail named after our city, well we had to try it! The Montrealer also had Fentimans’ ginger beer. Using the same ol’ mixers for cocktails can get boring. There are plenty available on the market and recently, we fell in love with Fentimans, a soda that was founded in the early 1900’s and is made by the same family today. They make several products, not just tonic, including Curiosity Cola, Ginger Beer, Cherry Cola, Herbal Tonic, Victorian Lemonade, Rose Lemonade, and Dandelion & Burdock.
