Long Table Distillery (Long Table) is a micro-distillery that produces award-winning, premium quality, artisanal spirits. Each small batch of spirits the company produces brings together 100% Canadian-grain-based alcohol, a range of natural and organic ingredients, locally-foraged botanicals and recipes inspired by the west coast. Long Table’s natural ingredients are handpicked by a network of expert wild foragers working in local mountains and select sources around the world. Even the water Long Table uses is sourced from British Columbia’s pristine Coast Mountain Range. All spirits are handcrafted in a custom-built, 300-litre copper pot.
The company offers a range of spirits, including: multi-award winning gins, such as cucumber gin, london dry gin, and bourbon barrel aged gin; their premium, award-winning texada vodka, which is distilled with a small amount of lemongrass and polished over a bed of Texada Island limestone; and a variety of seasonal spirits, such as Långbord Akvavit, VSOP Reserve ‘Pairs of Pears’ Brandy, and Tradizionale Limoncello. All products are inspected for safety and the company facility is a Registered B.C. Distillery, a Certified B.C. Craft Distillery and Coastal Health Certified.
Long Table was established in 2011, becoming Vancouver’s first micro-distillery. It is a family-owned business, founded by ginsmiths Charles and Rita Tremewen, who follow exacting, age-old distillation practices for all the spirits they produce. Today, their premium spirits are sold at liquor stores across Canada, and are proudly featured at top restaurants and bars that offer signature Long Table cocktails. The company has implemented sustainability measures to reduce the environmental impact of their product, including using electricity to heat their stills, creating a company-wide composting program, and repurposing the water used in their distillation process to wash tanks and equipment. All products come in glass bottles and are packaged in materials approved by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC).
