What a lineup! Local rules. Of the top eight, seven were Canada’s own including four from Alberta. Topping the list was the fine Ungava Gin, its brilliant hue showcasing the origin of its botanicals from Labrador’s tundra. Cirka Sauvage’s flavours spring from Quebec’s boreal forest. Edmonton’s Strathcona Spirits Seaberry highlights sea buckthorn foraged from the Badlands. Victoria Gin’s new offering, Empress 1908, gets its lovely colour from the infusion of butterfly pea blossom. Wild Life’s gin from Canmore is a more traditional, juniper forward expression – ideal for a G&T, and Rig Hand riffs on the classic lemon gin. Here’s to Canucky gin. Mary Bailey
