The GOODS from Odd Society Spirits

Vancouver, BC | Odd Society Spirits prepares to barrel their third annual batch of whisky and are thrilled to offer the public the opportunity to purchase a private 30 litre cask of their very own. This year, cask owners have the choice of a Canadian Single Malt made from 100% BC malted barley or a Canadian Rye Whisky made from 100% Dawson Creek grown grain. Both are fermented and distilled onsite.

Previous years have sold out within a few weeks. With only thirty casks available, buyers are encouraged to place their orders immediately. This exclusive offer ends on February 15, 2016. Casks are priced at $1,525 plus bottling fee.

Davin de Kergommeaux, Canadian whisky aficionado, blogger, and author, recently tasted a cask-strength sample of Odd Society’s first barrel of single malt, and here is what he had to say:

“At two years and two months the spirit is alive with flavor and richly colored. Fruity esters, acetone (good), stewed prunes, and nutty grain aromas characterize a surprisingly mature nose. On the palate, stewed fruit, sweet tobacco, hot but tempered pepper, and hints of vanilla fudge lead into a long spicy finish.”

All casks purchased are stored at Odd Society Spirits for 3 years under the expert supervision of distillers Gordon Glanz and Joshua Beach. During this time, proud cask owners can follow the aging process by attending a visitation and tasting event held by Odd Society once a year.

Canadian liquor regulations require that the cask’s contents age for a minimum of three years before it can be called a “whisky”. Once the aging process is complete, the spirit will officially be called a Single Malt Whisky and be bottled onsite Odd Society Spirits.

The Odd Society Spirits Limited Cask Offer Includes:

– 30 litres of Odd Society Single Malt barrelled at approximately 62% ABV (After three years of aging each cask will yield approximately 45-750ml bottles).

– Storage for three years while the spirit matures in once-used American White Oak

Casks onsite at the Odd Society Spirits Distillery.

– Bonding and Insurance for three years.

– Visitation and tasting event at the Odd Society distillery once a year.

Odd Society Spirits Limited Cask Offer Details:

– Price: $1,525 (includes tax)

– Payment is required at the time of ordering

– Bottling costs are $350 at the time of bottling

– The empty cask can be purchased for an additional $125 after bottling

Order: Purchase directly from the distillery by contacting General Manager, Miriam Karp at miriam [at] oddsocietyspirits.com.

About Odd Society Spirits

OddSociety_OddAviation_CauseandAffect

Odd Society is a small-batch craft distillery in the heart of East Van. Housed in a converted motorcycle garage on Powell Street, Odd Society Spirits is well situated in a happening craft liquor community, with neighbours including Powell Street Brewery, Parallel 49 Brewing Company, Storm Brewing, Coal Harbour Brewing and Bomber Brewing. The area is also quickly becoming a hot dining destination with popular restaurants Bistro Wagon Rouge and Kessel & March popping up just steps away from the distillery. Dedicated to combining old world distilling traditions with new world ingredients and ingenuity, Odd Society Spirits has created a family of spirits that entice and intrigue.

Founder and Distiller Gordon Glanz holds an MSc in brewing and distilling from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland where he experimented with distilling whiskey using raw grains and commercial enzymes before studying under the masters at Springbank distillery in Campbeltown.

Now back in his home town, Gordon is applying his penchant for experimentation and knowledge of tradition within the Odd Society, which he operates alongside his wife and partner, Miriam Karp, and good friend Joshua Beach.

What’s in a Name? The name ‘Odd Society’ reflects an interest to use their spirits and distillery as a way to bring together a diverse collection of creative and unique people. They wanted to make a home where guests could feel comfortable revealing their inner oddness.

The Odd Society is about experimentation, embracing change and celebrating individual and collective oddities.

This philosophy extends to their ideas about distilling. Just as any successful society is made up of a variety of distinct personalities in concert, they want each of their spirits to create a cast of unforgettable characters. From the subtle and discrete Wallflower Gin to the raw and untamed Mongrel, their family of spirits is meant to celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of the Odd Society community.
