As makers of fine spirits we’ve always had a passion for creating unique, locally produced small batch spirits with exquisite flavour profiles that tweak the senses and sensibilities of spirit lovers.  At the same time we pride ourselves on being local, establishing local connections and sharing in collaborations with exceptional local craft talent. We are very excited to introduce two unique spirits that are both British Columbia firsts and only available through our distillery in limited quantity.

Amaro No.1 Linnaeus – In the making of our first Amaro, we worked in collaboration with The Apothecary Bitters Company to create what we believe is a truly outstanding liqueur. It has complex forward notes of tobacco, vanilla and citrus with a long herbal and appealing bittersweet finish.  The combination of the spirits we distilled from 100% BC organic merlot grape pomace and an infusion of 28 carefully selected botanicals resulted in a one-of-a-kind, traditionally styled Amaro and now, the first to be made in BC.

Tradizionale Limoncello – Our limoncello was inspired by many tastings we had during a visit to Italy’s Cinque Terre.  Following the age-old Italian tradition of using honey, not sugar syrup, and fresh hand peeled lemon zest we were able create this timeless liqueur. The blackberry honey we use is sourced through our long-standing relationship with Hives for Humanity, a local non-profit social venture that supports community connections through beekeeping.  The resulting combination is a naturally sweetened, traditionally styled Italian limoncello – the first of it’s kind in BC.

We hope you enjoy our craft! Alla Vostra Salute!

The Significance of a Long Table…

Many people ask us how Long Table Distillery got its name. Two years ago we started evolving our dream of starting up a micro-distillery. We knew we wanted to introduce friends and visitors to our passion in a place that combined our foodie background, recognized our desire to produce a hand-made product incorporating our belief in being local and sustainable, and of course, encourage social gatherings.

Friend filled evenings, great conversations, fine food and beverage sparked our desire to create a tasting room suitable for kindred spirits to share our craft. We felt a long table would be the perfect spot for that meeting place. This notion set the wheels in motion to locate a unique piece of locally sourced timber.
