Guy Lafleur No. 10 Gin – hockey legend’s namesake gin is fleurly awesome
Guy Laflueur (The Flower) became a legend thanks to his exciting and inspiring style of play, his intensity, and of course his five Stanley Cups. These attributes also work in perfect harmony with Guy Lafleur No. 10 gin, a spirit made in Quebec by Verger Hemmingford.
Peppery and spicy, it unveils fragrances of juniper berry along with delicate notes of flowers and citrus. The floral and subtly spicy side of this exceptional gin will delight connoisseurs and will not fail to inspire mixologists. Distilled with aromatics and 100% Canadian grains. ABV 43%.
This product was recently launched in Ontario, and is already proving to be a hit with both hockey fans, and gin drinkers. There’s none of that harsh gin taste, but instead an easy drinking spirit that can be enjoyed straight up or with your favourite mix. Perfect to have on hand for special occasions, and it most certainly should score big this summer at the cottage or backyard entertaining. It’s the perfect teammate come aperitif time or when the night goes into overtime!
Available at the LCBO – $47.95, 750ml
