Explore new taste territory

This year, we wish you a joyful and festive holiday season, filled with warmth, sweetness, and good times spent with family and friends. Discover how local gastronomy and cocktails go hand in hand to make your occasion extra special! Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and knock your guests’ socks off with new takes on old classics elevated with delicious local flavours, like a kir royal made with sparkling Quebec wine and a crème de cassis from not too far away or a new twist on eggnog with Quebec rum and eau de vie—just add an egg yolk, honey, milk and a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg.

Feeling daring? We have a few bold recipes for you! The chasse-neige with spiced Quebec rum, like the aptly named Rosemont l’Après-Ski and its notes of caramel, brown sugar and ginger, is the perfect way to wind down after a day in the snow. Want to kick off your party with a bright and festive punch? Look no further than the shooting star with Quebec gin, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, ice cider and white cranberry juice. 

Quebec’s northern forests in your glass

The boreal forest is brimming with fruits and herbs that blend seamlessly into our favourite recipes—and our favourite cocktails. Created with aromatics like wild blueberries, mushrooms and conifers, gins with the boreal taste tag are not only made in Quebec, they taste like Quebec!

Quebec wines to toast your holiday dinners

There are so many excellent local wines, and a few bottles could certainly find their way to your holiday table. Keep things made in Quebec with traditional dishes like meat pie, meatballs and pig’s feet stew, layered sandwich loaf or Lac-Saint-Jean tourtière paired with the perfect red or white. When it comes to the very last course, there’s no better way to end things than on a sweet note! Choose from the wonderful regional dessert wines available in stores and online.

Try something new, make it fun!

You don’t need to be a mixologist to experiment with Quebec wines and spirits. We’ve even made it easy for you to spot them: look for the Origine Quebec, Made in Quebec and Bottled in Quebec labels. Try the labels that speak to you and the recipes that inspire you. Just like Quebec cuisine, which turns the spotlight on our local products, Quebec spirits and wines will help you discover all the regional essences la belle province has to offer.
