get a black belt in booze

About March 6, 2007

liquor and libations is a blog by three ladies in Vancouver. We like a good glass of wine, we like to make cocktails, we like beer, scotch, tequila, sake, you name it, we’ll give it a try. Most of all, we like to share a good drink with good people, and we’d like to share this with you.

  5. I would like to invite you to join an online conference of drink bloggers: Drink. Blog. Talk 2007. It will be held between September 22 and 29, 2007 and anybody who blogs about alcoholic drink is invited to take part. I have not been able to find a contact email on your site so, if you are interested, please contact me at and I will send you out an invite. If you want to find out more about who I am, I blog at about Japanese whisky. The idea for the conference came out of a discussion between myself, Kevin Erskine (of and Jeffrey Morgenthaler (of on a thread at Kevin’s blog. I hope you will be able to take part.

    Hi…can you tell me where to find pisco? I had it Costa Rica & the LCBO here in Ontario tells me they don’t have a supplier. I’ve been trying to find it in Toronto but I can’t. Anyone have any ideas?

    Hi John,

    We’ve seen and bought it at the liquor store here in Vancouver. I know that each province handles their own liquor distribution, but here’s a link to the pisco they sell here in BC, maybe you can special order it, or get your local LCBO office to contact the BC office for you.

    Good luck!

    The Whiskey Trail Stops at Heinz Field on November 2nd

    Tickets Now on Sale for Inaugural Festival of World-Renowned Whiskies and Premium Spirits

    September 30, 2007 PITTSBURGH, PA — The spirit of the American Whiskey Trail continues with the 2007 Pittsburgh Whiskey Festival, Pittsburgh’s first large-scale whiskey and premium spirits tasting event, to take place Friday evening, November 2, 2007 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the West Club Lounge at Heinz Field.

    The 2007 Pittsburgh Whiskey Festival will attract and engage both “whiskey” and “whisky” enthusiasts alike. The festival will feature more than 60 premier distilled spirits producers and will present a wide variety of the finest Scottish, American, Canadian and Irish whiskies, including single malts and bourbons. Premium tequila, rum, gin, vodka and cognac will also be presented for tasting. The fest, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, will include a buffet and a silent auction.

    “It is befitting for Pittsburgh to have a world-class tasting event that celebrates premium spirits,” said Ed Harrell, producer of the Pittsburgh Whiskey Festival and president of the Pittsburgh Wine Festival. “In the tradition of the Pittsburgh Wine Festival, we are excited to have some of the finest distilled spirits producers in the world coming to Pittsburgh for the Whiskey Festival.” The Whiskey Festival will offer whiskey and other premium spirits enthusiasts to “try before you buy” spirits that will be available through the onsite PLCB Premium Spirits store.

    The heritage and history of distilled spirits in America is fascinating, with many pivotal events and landmarks in this region, from The Whiskey Rebellion in 1794 to Pittsburgh’s mark on The American Whiskey Trail. “Our region is so rich with whiskey heritage” says Max Miller, Managing Partner of Raise Your Spirits, a Sensory Experience Firm that provides customized interactions with luxury spirits and products. “Any exploration of the evolution of the whiskey industry, its migration from Europe, and its importance in American culture, invariably includes western Pennsylvania. We look forward to the Pittsburgh Whiskey Festival being an exciting and anticipated tradition for years to come.”

    Tickets to the Pittsburgh Whiskey Festival are $85 in advance and $95 at the door. Tickets are now available for advance purchase online at, along with additional event information.


    The 2007 Pittsburgh Whiskey Festival is produced by Pittsburgh Wine Festival LLC, one of the top ten wine festivals in the United States.
