At Bootleg Spirits, we co-distill with one of BC’s first Craft Distilleries right here in the BC Kootenays. We source organic BC grown ingredients and bring our own original recipes and make outstanding whiskey, spirits and liqueurs that comes with 15 years of distilling experience. By distilling and blending in small batches, we maintain high standards of quality control and consistency that our customers expect and deserve. This is one of the strong underlying reasons that we founded Bootleg Spirits. It comes from the heart, along with strong beliefs of doing things a little differently to keep delivering quality products. We build our own distilling systems, develop our own recipes, and will always walk the “grey” line of the law. There is a piece of history and tradition that sits at the centre of our constitutions and makes us who we are. Follow along on our journey as we bring Bootleg Spirits to everyone.
Outrun the ordinary with us.
This hearty pick-me-up will have you ready to go in no time. Mix 1 oz Scotch, 1 oz JOE, 1 oz Oat & Honey or Honeycomb Cream. Pour over ice and sip this one slowly! For those that love the sweets - add a little bit of maple syrup.
The Side Kick
The perfect drink for the coffee purist. Pour 1-2 oz of espresso into a cup. Chase it with 1 oz of Oat & Honey. We don't want you to mess with the classics, so sometimes they work best on their own (but also side by side).
The perfect latenight cocktail! Blend 2 oz Cold Brew, 1 oz Vodka, 1.5 oz Oat & Honey, 1/2 oz JOE. Pour over a large ice cube and enjoy!
Warm up on those winter mornings. Mix 4 oz of hot water + 1 hot chocolate packet (or pre-made hot chocolate). Pour 1 oz of Contreau into the bottom of the glass, add 2 oz of JOE + hot chocolate. Top with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and orange garnish.
On the Rocks
Keeping it classic when you don't want to mess with a good thing. Pour 2-3 oz of Oat & Honey or Honeycomb Cream over ice.
Add 1-2 oz of Honeycomb into your favourite latte with regular milk or Oat Milk. Top with foam and cocoa!
The Ice Over
Keep it simple on those hot days! We've tried various ice cube flavours, and love using coffee for this one. Simply make your choice of ice cube and pour 2-3 oz of Oat & Honey or Honeycomb Cream over top. Enjoy!
Adding a little extra "spice" to your traditional Chai Latte. Add 1-2 oz of Honeycomb Cream, Oat & Honey, or JOE. Mix and top with foam, along with cinnamon + a cinnamon stick.
The Cold Brew
Taking a classic for a spin. Fill a glass with 1/3-1/2 ice along with 8 oz of your favourite cold brew coffee. Pour in 2 oz of Honeycomb Cream or Oat & Honey! You can also add in an extra ounce of JOE!
In a blender, add 2 oz Honeycomb Cream, 1 cup of coffee or cold brew, 2 oz of milk, 2 scoops of ice cream and then blend. Pour into a tall glass, and top with Dalgona and chocolate shavings!
2 oz of Honeycomb Cream or Oat & Honey, 1 tsp water, 3 dashes Angostura bitters and garnish with an orange twist. Best if paired with a roaring fire on a cold night.
We love a good apple cider, but we especially love this one with an extra twist. Simmer 2 oz of water, along with 4 oz of Apple Cider, and pour into a mug with 2 oz of Cabin Fever. Top with Honeycomb Cream Whipped Cream and garnish with nutmeg. YUM.
We like to call this one Mountain Madness....Add 5 oz of boiling hot water to a mug with 2 oz of Cabin Fever. Add a lemon slice or wedge and stir with a cinnamon stick. Want to get a little extra flavour in there? Try dipping the cinnamon stick in honey!
This was an easter inspiration for us and was the perfect addition to our easter dinner! Enjoy anytime! Muddle 3 strawberries, add in the juice of 1/2 a lime, add 3 oz of Cabin Fever and top up with soda! Garnish with lime peel and a strawberry.
We love a good hack, especially the Lindt chocolate bunny hack! Each of the 100g bunnies holds about 3-3.5 oz, so we thought about blending a few for these delicious Bunny drinks. Get 1oz of cold coffee, 1 oz of JOE and 1 oz of Honeycomb Cream or Oat & Honey. Blend and pour into the Lindt Bunnies. Add a straw. Sip and enjoy!
Based on the classic Moscow Mule, we've added yet another twist on a classic drink. Miz 2 oz of Cabin Fever with 6 oz of Ginger Beer (we personally love Fever Tree Ginger Beer!), juice of half a lime, and a little bit of ginger to garnish. Add a lime wedge and pour over ice!
