Lucky Bastard Distillers
Saskatchewan, one of Canada’s providences, has a couple of craft distilleries that are worth the detour on your Canadian roadtrip. Lucky Bastard Distillers in Saskatoon, is a great find!
LB Distillers began when founders, Michael Goldney and Cary Bowman, set out to create a quality spirit. Being one of the first and only distilleries in Saskatchewan, LB Distillers have faced many hardships along the way, including getting their name trademarked! None of this stopped them however, as they worked very hard to overcome the issues while creating unique and fun spirits and liqueurs!
Their premium vodka is made using 100% Saskatchewan wheat and is distilled seven times in a copper pot. They use that base spirit to blend and create many unique flavored vodkas including a spicy Chai Vodka, a distinctive Dill Pickle Vodka, and Vanilla Espresso Vodka. They also produce many gins, an amber wood rum, a single malt whisky, and a range of delicious liqueurs, including a wildflower honey liqueur and a haskap liqueur, all made using local ingredients.
Take a tour of the LB Distillers distillation house, enjoy a tasting, and purchase a bottle or two of your favorite spirit or liqueur to take home!
