Sip the Sea to Sky: Introducing Blackcomb Mountain Gin

After a day skiing or hiking the slopes of Whistler is there anything better than relaxing with a refreshing gin and tonic? To celebrate the flavours of Whistler and the spirit of après we are proud to announce the launch of our very own delectable spirit – Blackcomb Gin. Made in collaboration between Fairmont Chateau Whistler and Montis Distillery.

Blackcomb Mountain Gin

This bespoke batch is infused with unique flavors of the Sea to Sky region, and thoughtfully crafted with Pemberton Valley hops, cedar tips, juniper berries, grapefruit peel, coriander, ginger, and orris root.

This après spirit is perfect after an adventure filled day available for purchase at Portobello. Whether for you or as a gift to a loved one, experience the essence of Whistler’s alpine allure and the spirit of adventure with every sip.
