This week’s SPOTLIGHT….. Victoria’s Gin
After appearing on stage at the National Home Show last weekend with the legendary super model Cheryl Tiegs we decided to take a walk through the show ending up in the wine garden, of course. Always on the search for new things, much to our delight we found the perfect The Wine Ladies Spotlight product for our Beautiful British Columbia and It’s Wines! TV show. We had the pleasure to meet Edward, a fine young man who was there showcasing Victoria’s Gin http://www.victoriaspirits.com/our-gin/ , the 1st gin to be made on Vancouver Island by Ken Winchester, winemaker at Winchester Cellars http://www.britishcolumbia.com/attractions/?id=145 .

Gin was invented around 1650 in the Netherlands by a professor of medicine as a cure for kidney and stomach ailments. In the 1700s, particularly in England where British soldiers in the Far East were given the spirit along with tonic for the medicinal powers of quinine, a key ingredient in tonic water, to ward off malaria. The rest, including its use in martinis and Singapore slings, is the stuff of legend.
Victoria’s Gin is basically an infused neutral vodka to which about 9 ingredients( Junniper Berries, Coriander, Angelica, Orris Root, Lemon Peel, Orange Peel, Star Anise, Cinnamon Bark, Rose Petals), are added including an 10th secret ingredient. Complex and flavourful that you could drink on its own much the same way you’d enjoy a single-malt scotch. Simply delicious. Georgia liked her plain while Susanne enjoyed it with bitters. Either way delicious.
Victoria’s Gin is already available in British Columbia already launched in May 2009 and will be available in Ontario at most LCBO stores April 2010.
Price: $49.95 for
