We will be having a R:ED "tour and tasting" at Patent 5 Distillery on Wednesday November 6 at 7:00 p.m. If you haven't been there, this will be a great introduction, and if you have, a chance to see behind the scenes with a 30 minute tour. Then of course, we can sit in their beautiful lounge and enjoy a cocktail or two. Great opportunity to meet other residents!
Patent 5, the city’s newest distillery utilizes 90 per cent Manitoban wheat and 10 per cent Manitoban barley run through a 125 gallon pot still to produce both vodka and gin. Their gin is made utilizing vapour infused botanicals (as opposed to steeping), while the handsome tasting room sits 35 and is composed of reclaimed oak from the former St. Regis Hotel, giving the setting a circa 1908 vibe. Cocktails in the distillery utilize Manitoba-made bitters, featuring local ingredients like sour cherries and rhubarb.
There is no cost for the event, other than whatever you drink or eat.
