Revelstoke’s Monashee Spirits named Canada’s Best Apres Distillery by Forbes

Monashee Distillery has been featured in Forbes as “Canada’s Best Apres Distillery”.

Written by Cassidy Randall, a travel contributor for the website, the article describes the distillery as one of the province’s best new aprés-adventure locales.

“Now in its second year, this nascent distillery just won the Canadian Artisan Spirit of the Year award for its Ethos Gin—not just for best in class of Canadian gin, but scoring the highest of any spirit in the competition,” the article reads.

Last year Randall wrote about Lake Revelstoke, describing it as a remote lake that should be on your summer bucket list.
