Monashee Spirits will soon offer cocktails

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
