Victoria Gin Launches

British Columbia isn't known for it's wine or it's gin but in the heart of Vancouver Island is a new distillery that has become BC's first gin.

Of course, the gin has juniper berries, but it also has an extensive recipe that includes things like rose petals, cinnamon bark, and star anise, plus 7 other ingredients including a super secret special ingredient that they want you to guess at. I'm guessing that it's chicken nuggets, but I've been wrong before.

The gin is distilled in small batches and only the "heart" of each of the batches is taken out, leaving a gin for the gin connoisseur in all of us. It's available in a select few places until June 1, then other select few places after that. How's that for vague?
