T’is the season for warming drinks, flavoured beers and heavy pours! Here are some of our top picks to have in your home bar this holiday season:
Oast Brewery – BIERE DE NOEL
Oast brewery’s festive, limited edition, farmhouse ale is a great addition to your holiday booze line-up! With notes of chocolate, molasses and cola, it’s best enjoyed catching up with old friends. Oast Brewery suggests this beer can age up to 3 years. We suggest you stock up while you can!
Wayne Gretzky Estates Canadian Cream Whisky 750mL
This whisky has been around for a few years and is always one of our holiday enjoyments! Sweet, with notes of almond, biscuit and nutmeg, it’s delicious enjoyed on the rocks or in your Christmas morning coffee.
Dillons Distillery, Golden Plum Schnapps 750mL
While the kids are asleep in their bed, visions of sugarplums can dance through your heads. Dillon’s twist on the North American schnapps style with the sweet taste of golden plum juice. Makes for a great holiday cocktail!
SilverSmith Brew House, Legends of the Mistletoe Bough
With limited quantities being released, count yourself lucky if you can get your hands on this special edition barleywine from Silversmith Brew House. With notes of orange and raisin, it’s mean to conjure up the essence of the Christmas figgy pudding. We can’t wait to try some. But hurry! It might be gone soon!
Sunnybrook – Cranberry Fruit Wine
If you’ve got family around the table with more of a sweet tooth, Sunnybrook’s Cranberry Fruit Wine is sure to please! With the right amount of spice and acidity, it won’t overpower your holiday meal.
