An award-winning small batch Gin from Alberta.

Eau Claire Distillery is Alberta’s original craft distillery that opened in summer 2014 in Turner Valley near Calgary. They’re all about making hand-crafted, artisanal and fine Spirits. It was founded by David Farran and Larry Kerwin’s who wanted to celebrate Alberta’s rich land and set the bar really, really high for Canada’s most premium Spirits. This is why every award-winning small batch from Eau Claire Distillery is carefully crafted to perfection from farm to glass.

Parlour Gin is made from 100% Alberta malted barley. Distilled in small batches in a traditional German copper pot still with traditional Gin botanicals, it contains juniper and coriander that are combined with local ingredients like Saskatoon berries and Alberta rose hips. The list of awards includes SIP Awards' Consumer Choice Award (2018), The Fifty Best's Double Gold (2016), World Gin and Awards' Best Canadian London Dry Gin (2019). It must have to do with its dry, smooth, and harmonious character with juicy refreshing citrus on the tart and round palate. Very clean, especially, for a barley-based Spirit.

Flavor Spiral TM
About the Flavor Spiral
What does Parlour Gin taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Parlour Gin and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

It’s a common myth that Gin is a tear-jerker. Of course, drinking too much of it will make you feel awful the next day, but that’s the same with any alcohol.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
While juniper-heavy Gin is perfect for your daily G&T, it is also complemented extremely well by tea flavours such as Earl Grey. Try steeping Earl Grey tea bags in Gin for an hour before mixing it with lemon juice and soda for a refreshing tipple. This one gets you additional kudos, so let’s keep it between us.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
