Something amazing is happening in Saskatchewan
- a craft wine & spirits revolution -
A handful of innovative wineries, distilleries and meaderies are making handcrafted, locally made spirits, wines, ciders and meads available for the first time since prohibition. The heart of this movement is an embrace is quality over quantity producing wonderful libations using locally sourced fruits, grains, honeys and sugars in small batches. Independent artisan distilleries, wineries and meaderies are producing more than a hundred unique liquors – everything from wine, vodka, cider, gins, rum, mead, whisky, and even more specialized spirits like Eau de Vie, and flavored liqueurs.
" The Saskatchewan craft industry is of increasing importance, and we are excited to have a forum in which we can work to grow together. Not only do we make unique, quality products made from products grown right here in Saskatchewan, but we are economic drivers for our communities and are committed to growing and keeping our businesses here in this province."
