SLIVOVITZ
Plum Brandy

50% ABV

375 ML

PLUM BRANDY

Prev Next

Slivovitz – aka plum brandy – is a proud eastern European spirit to celebrate, to reflect, and everything in between. Its jammy plum sweetness is tempered with notes of almonds and oak; strong enough for bittersweet reflection; smooth enough to wrap you in a blanket of forgiveness.

Our 2020 batch was aged in former Glen Saanich 30L barrels for 18 months.

Our Story

Ancient Grains
An Authentic BC Alternative Whisky.

45% ABV

750 ML

YOUNG WHISKY

Prev Next

What do we mean by ‘Alternative Whisky’? …Alt Whisky is described as a modern, new world spirit made using alternative grains and techniques and by the whims and desires of the distiller them-self.

With that in mind, Ancient Grains was born. Distilled from BC barley, spelt, emmer, khorosan and einkorn-the ancestors of all modern grains and deeply significant to the culture and heritage of our province. Guaranteed to be one of the most unique whiskies one has ever laid lips to.

Aged in new American oak quarter-casks; notes of candied fruit and macadamia nuts combine with spicy notes of clove, allspice and smoke.

Genever Gin
The Grand mother of all Gin.

45% ABV

375 ML, 750 ML

DUTCH-STYLE GIN

Prev Next

Canada’s first Genever celebrates a recipe dating back to the early 1600’s when the Dutch East India fleet roamed the seas in search of exotic spices.

Made from local malted barley and infused with more than 20 rare botanicals; from mugwort to wormwood, horehound to blessed thistle. Our ‘Dutch Courage’ is unique, complex, and a DEVINE must-try.

The Genever aroma is clean with an equal blend of herbal, floral, medicinal, and citrus. Slightly sweet and not unlike an un-aged Scotch.

BARREL-AGED GENEVER

Prev Next
Dutch Courage brings together the flavours of our two most awarded and unique spirits. We rest our Genever Dutch-Style Gin in once-used Ancient Grains Alternative Whisky barrels.

The initial botanical-forward aromas of wormwood, mugwort, and juniper gently give way to vanilla and caramel,  melding beautifully on the palate in a warm, lingering finish.

A standout cocktail-ready spirit that also holds its own sipped neat.

BEEKEEPERS RESERVE

We love rum. Alas sugar cane doesn’t grow here in British Columbia; however we have some of the world’s finest honey. We fermented wild-gathered clover honey into a dry mead and distilled it twice in the style of a rich, elegant spirit. Crystal clear and full of spice, fruity, and floral notes in the style of a fine Caribbean rum. Perfect for classic cocktails.

Richly warming with layers of white flowers, raw vanilla bean, chamomile, and honeycomb with a spicy clove finish. Perfect for classic cocktails.

Our classic Honey Shine has become a flagship spirit for us here at De Vine. Made from 100% local honey; fermented, distilled, and aged on site in once-used casks.

BRITISH-STYLE GIN

By adding wild sloe berries (a tiny member of the plum family) to our classic gin, we’ve brought an old English tradition to Canada. The result is a full-strength spirit that’s tart but with a delicious richness and depth of flavour backed by a subtle berry sweetness.

A bounty of flavours dominated by dried fruits, black liquorice, candied orange, sugar plums, and lavender. Balanced by traditional gin botanicals of juniper and coriander, fresh spruce tips and white pepper.
