Valentines Day is just around the corner so this posting is coming at a pretty decent time. By now, you are well aware that I’m rocking the title as Ambassador for Rémy Cointreau. Fortunately, under the Rémy Cointreau brand, I am able to extend the celebrations to their partner brands. Enter, The Botanist Gin! The Botanist is a small-batch, artisanal Islay gin made by Bruichladdich Distillery. What makes this gin so aromatic is the 22 locally picked wild Islay botanicals – huzzah!
Bringing together more than 50 of Vancouver’s out and abouters, we prepped them with a one-stop shop for the big day of love. Needed flowers to be delivered? Big thanks to Flower Factory for making everyone look good! Need a shave or new cut? Barber & Co. so graciously hosted a pop up for a 5 min style with bookings available right before Vday. Need dinner reservations? We had Vancouver’s best edibles on hand for immediate bookings. And, of course, the gifting! The latest Kit & Ace collection was available in all sizing for the last minute gifters.
Everyone sipped, shopped and splurged. For those of you, that attended, when your loved one says “You shouldn’t have!” tell them we say “You’re welcome”.
