An authentic BC alternative whisky.
Devine Distillery & Winery Ancient Grains

What is ‘Alternative Whisky’? Alt Whisky is described as a modern, new world spirit made using alternative grains and techniques and by the whims and desires of the distiller them-self.

With that in mind, Ancient Grains was born. Distilled from BC barley, spelt, emmer, khorosan and einkorn-the ancestors of all modern grains and deeply significant to the culture and heritage of the province British Columbia. Guaranteed to be one of the most unique whiskies one has ever laid lips to.

Aged in new American oak quarter-casks; notes of candied fruit and macadamia nuts combine with spicy notes of clove, allspice and smoke.

45.0% ABV. 750 mL.
