Forage connects diners to farmers, fishers and foragers. Also on the menu? Local distilleries, wineries and breweries. This is why Chef Chris Whittaker is offering a terroir-based 6 course dinner to celebrate local distilleries with the BC Distilled Festival. Chef has chosen the menu to pair with a cocktail and the straight version of these spirits.
The distillers from Sheringham Distillery, Wayward Distillers, Dubh Glas Distillery, Odd Society Spirits, Sons of Vancouver, and Okanagan Spirits will be present to enjoy the evening with us.
Buy tickets for this once in a lifetime event here.

This beautiful family farm sits on 650 acres at the foot of McIntyre Bluff, an iconic Okanagan landmark. Gene Covert and his family have been cultivating on this land for 4 generations. Everything they grow; from wine grapes to produce, is grown with love & respect for the land. The Covert family supplies Forage with wine & produce from their Salmon Safe farm.
These folks really know how to do craft spirits. They’ve been distilling mead based spirits for only a few years at their artisan craft distillery in the heart of the Comox Valley, and they’ve already won our hearts. (and some big-time awards along the way!) We have almost every spirit they make at Forage, which are always small batch and made with genuine care for the ingredients. Their mandate is to have fun while making sure to keep bees an important part of BC’s burgeoning distillery culture.
Between late spring and early fall each year, Rick Burns and his boat - Pacific Provider - travel through the cold, clean waters around the Queen Charlotte Islands in search of the best catch, using only the most sustainable fishing methods. This means trolling with a barbless hook and line designed specifically for salmon, eliminating the risk of endangering other fish, birds, marine mammals and damaging the ocean floor. He knows where each and every fish he catches come from, and he works one on one with select Chefs in the city. Rick Burns is simply a legend.
