Fairmont Chateau Whistler Takes Craft Spirit Experience to New Heights

February 20, 2024

Whistler, BC – February 20, 2024 – Celebrated for its stunning alpine setting at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, and a compelling invitation for guests to indulge in unparalleled experiences, Fairmont Chateau Whistler is thrilled to announce the launch of a new premium artisanal spirit, Blackcomb Gin. Crafted in partnership with Whistler’s Montis Distilling, this mountain gin collaboration promises guests a memorable cocktail experience that embodies Whistler’s year-round allure.

Artfully infused with botanicals that include hops from the local Pemberton Valley, cedar tip, juniper berries, grapefruit peel, coriander, ginger, and orris root, the gin’s harmonious blend captures the essence of the destination’s wild surroundings in every sip.

“Blackcomb Gin opens a world of possibilities for crafting exceptional cocktails,” says Jack Broadhead, Director of Food and Beverage at Fairmont Chateau Whistler. “Its unique blend of flavours truly reflects the spirit of Whistler and provides a canvas for innovative mixology.”

Guests will have the exclusive opportunity to savour this new spirit in the resort’s luxurious mountain lodge setting, whether as the star ingredient in the Mallard Lounge’s signature cocktail, Northern Soul, or on the rocks in Fairmont Gold’s cozy boutique lounge. For guests and visitors seeking an authentically local gift, 750 ml bottles are available for purchase at the resort in Portobello ($80 + tax each).
