This Company Is Putting Montreal's Street Art Into A Bottle And It's Tasty AF

Our need to constantly push against the status quo, and quite literally paint over the walls that confine us is a testament to the endless creativity and originality that flows from every pore of this island. We just do things differently here, and so of course, our alcohol does too.

Imagined right here in Montreal, and born from a passion to inspire, Romeo's Gin is not only changing the spirits game, but it's also making us look beyond its crystal-clear elixir to see the art that surrounds us everyday.

A unique blend of all-natural distilled juniper, cucumber, dill, lavender, almond and lemon; Romeo's has a very distinctive taste profile and quality about it that stands up balanced with a perfectly clean finish. Of course, you'll have to try it for yourself to know exactly what I'm talking about, but what really makes Romeo's Gin stand out, is its philosophy and dedication to showcasing urban artists.

Every limited edition will feature select artwork from various contemporary and urban artists from Montreal and beyond. Our very own Stikki Peaches graces the inside of Romeo's first release, turning the bottle itself into a piece of art.

And because the true nature of any art is to share the wealth, Romeo's Gin has even set up a foundation to help preserve, promote and democratize urban art and culture. For every bottle sold, a percentage will go directly to the cause. Definitely not your average dry gin.

Full disclosure, gin has been my go-to drink for as long as I can remember, and like any connoisseur, the desire to discover the newest flavour is what fuels the fascination. Well, I've officially got a new fascination, and it goes by the name of Romeo's.

Romeo's Gin is currently available at the SAQ. Make sure to like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter to learn more about this amazing local business.
