Distilled from 100% Alberta 2-row malt barley and lightly charcoal filtered. An ever so light graininess is noticeable. This follows with a mild sweetness, derived from specialty yeast fruity esters produced through a slow fermentation. Very clean and smooth. (40.0% ABV)
Pickles (really!), smoked salmon, steak, & perogies
Medica: Honey Liqueur
Sweetened with Raw Alberta Honey to adjust the ABV to 28.0% and increase the sweetness. This process brings about a light golden color and an incredible depth of aromas and flavor. This liqueur lends itself quite well to sipping on it’s own (think digestif, port, sherry, etc…) and mixing with other drinks (similar to sweet vermouth in a martini, boulevardier, or negroni).
Sweet desserts, including locally produced honey cakes (known locally in Europe as Medovnik). Can be steeped with chamomile tea and other herbs to add further complexity as a soothing night-cap.
Honey Eau de Vie
100% pure Alberta Raw Honey is distilled lightly, similar to that of a whiskey or “honey shine”. Aromas of Alberta wildflowers, which change depending on where the bees have foraged. Rich and complex, w/ hints of bees wax and spice on the finish. A slight sweetness in both flavor and aroma, but not a sweetened liqueur. Best drank straight up, with a single large ice-cube, or mixed like as you would with a high-grade gin. 42.0% ABV, clear spirit.
White fish, steaks, charcuterie boards (especially dried fruits with as honey & blue cheese).
