In the heart of Canada’s orchard and wine country lies Forbidden Spirits Distilling Co. — a veritable Garden of Eden. Forbidden Spirits handcrafts a growing portfolio of ultra-premium brands including Forbidden Vodka, Rebel Vodka, Eve’s Original Gin, Adam’s Apple Brandy and Wallace Hill Whisky. All their spirits are made from 100% world-renowned British Columbian apples, many of which are grown in the estate orchards surrounding the distillery. Forbidden Spirits’ small-batch, handcrafted process marries pristine Canadian water with crisp BC apples, which are then distilled 25 to 50 times resulting in an ultra-smooth experience which reflects the distillery’s distinctive terroir. In 2022, FSD will also launch two new products: REBEL Vodka & Soda and EVE’s Gin & Tonic, both of which are canned Ready-to-Drink beverages.
The company has raised over $8 million dollars to date and is in the process of amalgamating with a TSX listed company, Spartan Acquisition Corp. symbol VDKA.P and closing on a unit offering that includes one common share at $0.30 and 1/2 a share purchase warrant at $0.50.
