EVOLVE Legacy Gin Project

Supporting the fight against gender discrimination

Divider

EVOLVE Gin is part of Okanagan Spirits’ commitment to supporting the fight against gender discrimination.

Imagine a future with gender equality.  EVOLVE Legacy Gin Project aims to make this a reality.  Proceeds from each bottle benchmarked off the gender pay gap and provide funding to organizations that champion educational opportunities and empowerment initiatives for women and those affected by gender discrimination.

For our EVOLVE Legacy Gin Project, we have come up with a local Okanagan, farm-to-flask, colour-changing gin to symbolize our aim to achieve gender equality within our lifetime.

Why should “blue” be any different than “pink”?

To us, EVOLVE represents the fluidity of gender and the need for all shades on this spectrum to be equally respected, be it in politics, sports, the boardroom, or the pay stub. Our stance is if we can get people thinking about how social constructs adversely affect more than half of the human population, we can help balance the scales.

EVOLVE starts its journey in local orchards, just a few kilometers from our family distillery. After crafting our gluten-free fruit alcohol, we add our secret blend of botanicals with highlights of basil, orange, and meadowsweet, re-distill, and then infuse our local wildflower melange to impart the magical colour-changing properties that are activated when citrus or tonic are mixed with the gin.

If our gin can EVOLVE, surely society can too.

The Laird of Fintry

HOMAGE TO THE OKANAGAN

Divider

On the west shore of Okanagan Lake is the delta of Fintry and the heritage site of the former Fintry Estate. Throughout the Okanagan Valley, the legend of “The Laird of Fintry” has stoked imaginations for more than a century.

It’s a true story that “The Laird” James Cameron Dun-Water ordered a special batch of personally-labeled Single-Malt Whisky (Scotch) from his homeland of Scotland in the early 1900s. The namesake and label design of our signature Single-Malt comes directly from a leftover bottle of the Laird’s secret stash – it’s our way of honouring the history of whisky in the Okanagan.

In turn, we support the Friends of Fintry Society with an annual donation to help maintain the original property of The Laird.

Flatten The Curve Hand Sanitizer

HELPING THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19

Divider

When the supply of sanitizer products ran short throughout the world in the early stages of the global pandemic, Okanagan Spirits put our stills to work on a new product to help the fight against Covid-19. Our Flatten the Curve Hand Sanitizer was initially donated to front-line organizations, including all major area hospitals, community care workers, schools, fire halls, RCMP detachments, the BC ambulance service, over 70 care homes, family practices, grocery stores, gas stations, and countless delivery, transit, and taxi drivers.

Eventually, we could offer our sanitizer to the general public by donation (and later for sale), enabling us to continue donating thousands of bottles to front-line workers. Every donation helped us produce and distribute the desperately needed hand sanitizer.

As the global supply chain from big chemical companies stabilized in 2022, small producers, including Okanagan Spirits, started to be phased out of the sanitizer market through figurative ‘red tape’. Now in 2023, we have only a few bottles remaining for sale at our two locations while we’re still permitted.

Note: As per Health Canada requirements, we have never used industrial-grade alcohol in any of our products. Our sanitizer is food-grade alcohol which we denature with hydrogen peroxide and glycerol for a pure (but undrinkable) premium hand sanitizer.

Composition: 80% ethyl alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, glycerol.

External Use Only, not for consumption.

Sanitizer works best with a sprayer/mister top screwed onto the top of the bottle.
