Stillhead’s Moscow Mule

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. 


2 oz (60 mL) Stillhead Vodka

Crushed ice

Ginger beer

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.
