Fernie Distillers has launched its first seasonal spirit
Fernie Distillers, Fernie, B.C.’s only small-batch distillery, has launched its first limited release, seasonal product, 5th & Park Damson Gin. The gin features damson plums, picked within walking distance of the distillery, and was the brainchild of owner/distiller Jillian Rutherford, who was interested in removing fruit from local trees in an effort to minimize bear attractants in Fernie.
“Having a fruit tree in bear country is a big responsibility,” said Rutherford. “Supporting local programs like the Fernie Apple Capture and WildsafeBC initiatives is important to us, and we are fortunate to be able to create a quality product too.”
This seasonal release was produced in limited quantities and is available to taste and purchase at Fernie Distillers on 1st Avenue in Fernie, B.C.
