Monashee Spirits Craft Distillery is one step closer to offering mixed drinks in Revelstoke.
The local company, based out of 307 Mackenzie Ave., had their request for a lounge endorsement for their existing manufacturer’s license with the B.C. Liquor Control and Licensing Branch approved by city council last week.
Mayor Mark McKee said that he thinks a lot of visitors are looking for local distilleries when they visit resort towns.
“It’s a start-up business and one that I think is becoming more and more trendy in a lot of other communties,” he said. “I think we’ve got an entrepreneur and we should be doing what we can to help them and so that was the reason I think council voted in favour.”
The approval means that in addition to the three products they currently manufature, Monashee Spirits will soon be able to offer cocktails to patrons
