"The passion to create category-defining products that will change the way you drink. We call this Liquid Alchemy."
— DIMITRI VAN KAMPEN
Co-Founder + Chief Drinks Officer
Our signature line of unique spirits is born from our experience as craft brewers and pioneers of the Ontario extreme brewing movement. Each small batch of DRINKLAB spirits undergoes constant and rigorous quality assurance and quality control checks at every stage of production, and is personally tasted and approved by founders, Brock Shepherd and Dimitri van Kampen, before release for sale.
DRINKLAB Hop Vodka™
Introducing our premier product – DRINKLAB Hop Vodka™, a unique spirit designed to bring vodka and gin lovers together by pairing the clean pure taste of premium vodka with the delicate botanicals of the finest gin. DRINKLAB Hop Vodka is created from the highest quality locally sourced Peaches and Cream corn grown in Chatham, Ontario. Using a traditional hand-crafted method, it is five-times distilled and blended with pure water in small batches, slow-filtered, and carefully infused with a special blend of West Coast hops. DRINKLAB Hop Vodka is smooth, creamy, and slightly sweet, with a distinctive hoppy aroma and flavour featuring notes of citrus zest and pine.
Vodka Hopped UP™
Here are some ideas on how to serve DRINKLAB Hop Vodka. But don't stop here. The only limit is your imagination.
"Focus on quality, use only the finest ingredients, throw in a dash of the unexpected, create with care, and then let the product speak for itself."
