Park Alpine Dry Gin
I've been to Banff countless amount of times over the years and I'm always blown away at how beautiful it is... Actually I would say one of the most beautiful places in the world. The mountain tops dusted with snow and the tall pine trees line the mountains. I always imagine grizzly bears wondering around the forest.

I visit Calgary often and try to make a point of going up to Banff every time, Its just to beautiful to not too.
My cousins came down from Calgary to visit and brought me a Bottle of Park Alpine Dry Gin from Banff. Its distilled in Banff's national park using fresh glacier water and hand picked Canadian Spruce tips. Botanicals used are Juniper, Coriander, Lemon peel, Orange peel, Orris root, Licorice, Angelica, Cinnamon and Canadian spruce tips.
Obviously I went to pour myself a drink as soon as they gave it to me. Had it will Fever Trees naturally light tonic water and lime as a garnish. They both asked me what I thought. Its really strange but it tasted like what a drink from Banff should taste like. Fresh... that is the first word I used to describe it, second would be crisp.
A very easy gin to drink. I think this gin will most diffidently become a staple in my gin collection. Will pick up a bottle when visiting Calgary and maybe even visit the distillery when next in Banff.
50ml of Park gin
Lime and Juniper berries to garnish
