In case you’ve been wondering, we’ve got some BIG things in the works at RAW Distillery. We can’t leak all of the details just yet. But, in the meantime, we’ve got a couple of announcements that we think you might like. A new partnership, a new location, new products, a new program, and MORE. Let us give you a quick rundown.
RAW Distillery Has Officially Partnered with BLAKE Canmore
We have entered into an exciting and inspiring partnership with BLAKE Canmore which came about serendipitously and could not be more fitting. BLAKE’s slogan says it all: “EAT. EXPLORE. EXPERIENCE.” Experiential eating and drinking are of the utmost importance to us. We want to provide a tasting adventure from start to finish, whether you’re coming in to enjoy a food and beverage pairing or purchasing a bottle of our spirits to drink on your own, it’s an adventure through and through. RAW and BLAKE are both founded upon a passion for local ingredients, unparalleled quality, and providing the best of the best. Eat local, drink local, know exactly what you’re putting in your body, and enjoy flavours like never before. Accessible luxury is what we’re all about. This partnership extends far past shared goals and values, in fact, it now includes a shared space.
Our Brand New Space
Have you noticed the construction on the back of the BLAKE restaurant? That’s us! We’ve left our old location and will be opening the doors to our brand new location later in the spring. You can expect a tasting room, a whole lot of sunlight, distillery tours, and more. We can’t wait to share this space with all of you. Stay tuned for photos, more info, and opening dates. We know you’ll love it as much as we already do!
Craft Spirits and Beyond
Why stop at spirits? RAW is poised to begin producing our very own craft beer! Our beer will be unveiled at this year’s Canmore Uncorked Beer Festival and on taps at our new location to follow. As you’d expect, it’s local, sophisticated, yet uncomplicated. RAW brewing is coming your way!
Do you feel that you are living a RAW lifestyle? Perhaps you should apply to become a RAW ambassador! We will be launching a RAW ambassadorship program this summer in which individuals from the Bow Valley and beyond can apply to join our team. Those selected will get perks from booze and merch to event tickets. Stay tuned for application details.
So, what about RIGHT now? Good question. While we wait for our new location to open its doors, there are a few ways you can enjoy RAW spirits.
Tastings at BLAKE
We will be holding guided tastings every Friday and Saturday from 2:30 – 4:30 pm at BLAKE in their exclusive Loft for $12. Upgrade to include tastings of cocktail flights. You will receive 3 sample cocktails, 0.5oz each, for only $15. We’ve also got spring break tastings which are now opened up for booking next week, March 26-30th between 2:30-4:30! So, book your tasting today, either for spring break or any week following on a Friday or Saturday. www.rawspirits.ca/tours
Buy Some Spirits!
Pop by BLAKE and purchase RAW spirits today or any day! We’ve got gin sample packs and full bottles of all of our spirits. We don’t know about you, but that sun sure does encourage getting a drink in hand. Can’t make it to Canmore? Ask for us at your local liquor store or buy online (insert link to online store)
We can’t tell you how excited we are for what’s to come. Thank you for your ongoing patience, love and support. Stay tuned!
