My daughter and I were visiting Granville Island and came across the distillery quite by accident. They distill whiskey, gin and Vodka on site and offer tasting flights. Flights are 4 different spirits 1/2 ounce each for $8 which I thought was very reasonable. We tried the whiskey flight. 2 unaged varieties and 2 aged varieties with descriptions of the... More

What a gem this distillery is! Absolutely unbelievable gins and - as importantly - top shelf and natural mix/garnishes make for memorable cocktails. You'll be hard pressed not to take a bottle (or two) home, as my wife and I did. The staff are friendly and know their product. Outstanding drinks, and their happy hour prices are hard to beat.

We stumbled across Liberty Distillery on Granville Island when we needed some shelter from the rain. Great little find! The wooden bar is something to admire and served up the best gin and tonic in Vancouver! If you have time, get Jamie to take you for a tour.

We stopped here for a quick drink. The place is really cool with a huge wooden bar. The guys working the bar were friendly and helpful. They did offer items for purchase, which were fun and unique. There is also a tour, but we picked just to drink instead. The drinks were fine - but nothing special. I would suggest... More

Granville Island can be overpopulated by the masses so it's good to know where to stop in when you get there to avoid the madness. The Liberty Distillery not only makes gin, but also vodka, whiskey and beer. The tables are communal so get used to sharing. Around happy hour is when things get a bit hairy with people trying...

On Granville Islad, a group of young distillers have been running their beautiful copper still making gorgeous craft gins, whiskeys and vodka. In addition to taking the short tour, their variations of style in their spirits make a tasting trip really worth while. They have botanical infusions for some of their gins that have created sipping products that don't need... More

Staying in Granville Island & Fairview

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out, Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios, hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all offer a plethora of activities and entertainment options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh wares at the public market, and others of whom have arrived to take in the eclectic atmosphere. A popular seafood destination, and Vancouver's leading spot for improv and amateur theatre, Granville Island is an indulgent, welcoming entertainment centre in any season or time of day.
