from The Distilleries of Vancouver Island
Unlike most distilleries, Stillhead makes its vodka out of 100 percent malted wheat instead of the usual barley, which gives the vodka a “sweeter” taste. Its packaging features the flowing water motif with blue swirls. https://stillhead.ca/cocktails/
2 oz (60 mL) Stillhead Vodka
Slice of lime
Spring of mint
Pour the vodka into a copper mug, julep tin, or tumbler. Load ¾ full with crushed ice. Top with ginger beer and stir gently to combine.
Garnish with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.
