Gin. Let’s be honest. That strikes up thoughts of London and a G&T after a long day at the office. I do not normally think of a Canadian made and produced product. How wrong I have been… Canadian made Ungava Canadian Premium Gin launched in March 2014 and is flipping the idea of the “classic gin” on its head. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself.
Québec’s Domaine Pinnacle have come up with a unique product that is truly Canadian from start to finish. “Its all-natural ingredients come from the vast unspoiled wilderness of the Canadian Arctic, a place so remote that few of us get the chance to visit it personally. But Canadians from coast to coast can now experience a taste of the north for themselves as the makers of Ungava Canadian Premium Gin release the truly distinctive spirit across Canada.”
The gin itself is named for the vast expanse of Ungava Bay in Northern Québec and it’s ingredients give it a unique yellow colour that is both eye catching and intriguing. With ingredients such as Nordic Juniper, Wild Rose Hips, Cloudberry, Crowberry, Arctic Blend and Labrador Tea… this is a gin like none I have ever seen.
Now available at the LCBO and across the country, I recommend the next time you’re in the mood for gin to support a Canadian company and choose Ungava.
