    Per Se Vodka

    WORLD'S BEST VARIETAL VODKA 2020
    VOTED BC'S BEST VODKA BC DISTILLED 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019

    Per Se Vodka is the pure expression of the 100% BC grown wheat we use to make our spirits. The grain is milled, fermented, and distilled, before being diluted with our own spring water to create an award winning spirit with body, sweetness, and a creamy mouth-feel. This vodka is best enjoyed sipped solo, but in true Ampersand fashion, it works well in your favourite cocktail.

    Ampersand Gin is our flagship product, an award winning instant classic, that brings together BC grown wheat with seven cultivated or wild harvested botanicals and our own spring water.

    Ampersand Gin plays well with others in your favourite cocktails, but it's also brilliant on its own. And since it's made from scratch with high quality botanicals and BC grown wheat, we think it's a better gin. Period.
