Drinking has been a source of entertainment for the majority of us right now, and the statistics prove it. According to Radio Canada, SAQ's online sales have risen by "approximately 200%" during the past two months. From online zoom parties to hosting your own personal happy hour, there's something fun about having a glass or two when you're just hanging out at home — especially when you're sipping on some local Quebec alcohol.
Believe it or not, but there are tons of locally made alcohols for us to try out right now. Another reason to be proud of being from la belle province.
And, with SAQ offering delivery again, having an at-home 5 à 7 has become easier than ever.
I think one thing we've truly learned in the past few months is how important it is to support local.
From wines to vodka and gin, Quebec is stocked with some pretty cool drinks to test out. And, what better time to try them out than now?
This means you can have both a fun night and a good drink while supporting Quebec businesses, it can't get much better than that.
Here's a list of our recommendations that you can purchase online from the SAQ and do a little taste test with.
Les Pervenches — Chardonnay
Domaine Bergeville — Sparkling Wine
