Why a cocktail tasting is the best new take on the classic holiday party

Nov 20 2018, 6:11 pm

Everyone has been to those holiday parties where you question why you’ve bothered to show up within the first 20 minutes. You know, the kind where everyone is sitting around a table pulling Christmas¬†crackers and talking about work. Yawn.

You’ve worked hard all year and deserve to enjoy a more engaging end-of-year party with your co-workers. That’s where a unique tasting experience comes in. And we know just the place:¬†Resurrection Spirits Distillery.

For starters, the east village distillery has an upscale yet laid-back vibe where your guests can show up in jeans and a tee, so there’s no pressure to run out and buy a James Bond-inspired suit for one night of the year.

And when it comes to the drinks, this place is on another level.

All¬†Ressurection spirits on the menu are handmade using locally-sourced grain with botanicals and spices. This gives you a unique tasting experience you literally won’t find anywhere else in the city.

The distillery¬†is co-owned and operated by¬†David Wolowidnyk and¬†Brian Grant (both Vancouver’s top bartenders), so you can expect big things with a selection of inventive craft cocktails on the menu, as well as¬†Resurrection’s own gin and white rye products.

Visit the tasting lounge to sample a selection of the best spirits infused in cocktails or book a group tour to discover the entire distilling process at Resurrection, from grain to glass. This is the kind of holiday (or birthday) party with a twist that your guests will never forget.

Hosting a party at¬†Resurrection Spirits definitely comes with an inventive, artisanal¬†edge. And you get to taste some of the most creative, handmade, local spirits while you’re there. What’s not to love?

There’s also the option to have your own barrel created with a unique logo such as your favourite icon or your company logo. The entire space at Resurrection Spirits can be booked out for parties, and all you have to do is email¬†[email protected] to book yours.

We’ll leave you with this pro tip: The distillery¬†is launching ros√© gin this December!
