  1. I have used the Washington Liquor website and its pretty great. Easy to see what stores products can be found in. I'm mostly interested in what anyone can recommend as good buys. I Briefly looked at the Pacific Distillery website and realized they make Voyager Gin, which I've heard good things about. Thanks for the suggestion.
  2. The British Columbia liquor stores are not known for their wide selection of interesting spirits, nor for the variety of the stuff they do carry. So my question to you is what should a guy bring back from the states that he can't get in Canada? Or if you live in Canada, what do you bring back when you travel? he I like to drink all kinds of stuff but lean towards stronger flavors. In the past I've scooped up: Rittenhouse BiB, Cynar, Applejack. I'm thinking a Rhum like La Favorite, or Gin like Old Tom. Basically something interesting. Any and all suggestions welcome! Thanks.
  3. I've never seen the liqueur here in Vancouver but I have seen the actual mastic resin and a jam/paste made from mastic in the local Greek grocery stores. From those you could make some neat cocktail ingredients such as a mastic gomme syrup (use mastic instead of gum arabic) or a mastic tincture. I love the piney taste of mastic as well.
  4. I'd add "Artisanal Cocktails: Drinks Inspired by the Seasons from the Bar at Cyrus" By Scott Beattie to the list. A really well written and interesting book.
