An unlikely story...

Here’s the Revelstoke version of what to do when life hands you … molasses?

In 2014, at the age of 33, Josh McLafferty had to re-learn how to walk. McLafferty had a passion for motocross, and had suffered a near-catastrophic injury that put him in a wheelchair. Six months later, he was pretty much on his feet again, but his career as a deep-sea diver and underwater welder was over.

Constantly experimenting with new flavor spirits that tie in with the community, there are some adventurous ones to try—from their garlic vodka for the Revelstoke Garlic Festival or their Bear Aware brandy that uses local fruits from the trees that attract bears in town.

Hurry hard to Revelstoke for curling (and cocktail) fun

REVELSTOKE, B.C.—In my mind it’s a beautiful thing, the stone spinning out of my hand with a perfectly steady counter-clockwise turn, sliding effortlessly down the sheet, cruising all the way to the button without even a single stroke from the sweepers, with me gliding likewise, perfectly — even majestically — behind it.
