Odd Society Spirits Crème de Cassis Awarded First Place By Sip Northwest
Sip Northwest Magazine’s 2016 Best of the Northwest issue hits newsstands today. Odd Society Spirits, a craft-certified distillery located in East Vancouver, took first place for their crème de cassis in the Best Fruit Liqueur category beating out submissions from distilleries across the Pacific Northwest region in both Canada and the United States. Last year Odd Society Spirits Owner and Distiller Gordon Glanz was recognized in the annual issue as an influencer in his field and this year the fruits of his labour took top honours.
“Our crème de cassis is made with blackcurrants we source from Abbotsford,” says Gordon Glanz. “This award speaks to our province’s incredible bounty as much as it does to our liqueur.”
Odd Society’s crème de cassis is based on the secret recipe of Master Chef Hervé Martin, head chef and owner of The French Table and once the personal chef to the late King Leopold III of Belgium. Made with the finest B.C. grown blackcurrants, it’s the perfect autumn dinner table accompaniment. With a fruity and sweet flavour balanced by crisp acidity, Odd Society’s award-winning crème de cassis is a premium liqueur for discerning palates.
Odd Society’s crème de cassis can be purchased direct from the distillery located at 1725 Powell St. in Vancouver, and at various private beer, wine and liquor stores across British Columbia.
