Lone Pine Distilling hails from Alberta, founded by two close friends after years of distilling spirits on a homestead fire, where a lone pine dominates the grounds. The building that houses the distillery was rebuilt and renovated by the founders of Lone Pine, adding to the renovation of the surrounding area (known as the “Hubcap District”). The Lone Pine museum is 8,000 square meters, making it Edmonton’s largest art gallery and one of the largest art galleries in Alberta. Each bottle shows EST. 2017 as a testament to the work that has been put into removing Lone Pine since the company was founded three years ago. They want to honor and celebrate their Alberta communities by using locally sourced ingredients, products and services, including the contributions of local artisans and community artisans.
Product Number: 5, including two new features that are still in the development phase.
Special Features: Rocky Mountain Gin – what makes it so special is that all the main ingredients are from the Rocky Mountain region of Alberta. Inspired by the variety of wildflowers and plants that grow naturally in the Alberta mountains, Lone Pine has created a formula that evokes the spirit of the Rockies through the fresh flavors of wild bergamot, mint and rosehips (all native to the region).
Most popular: It’s hard to pick a favorite, as the distillery has only been open for a short time, but Earl Gray Gin seems to be getting a lot of love.
Local Spices: Because they work to source as much as possible, many spirits have local flavors. For example, the wheat for Parkland Wheat Vodka is harvested in Alberta’s Parkland prairie and produces a subtle flavor, which goes from raw grain to spirit. Rocky Mountain Gin is defined by its unique flavor, with ingredients sourced from the Rocky Mountains of Alberta and organically produced by local producers.
