About

Saskatchewan is Cree for swift flowing river and Saskatoon is named after the beautiful berry that grows in abundance around our magnificent river. We are located smack dab in the centre of Canada. Our home is a true juxtaposition of extremes, which makes it the greatest place to produce the finest spirits and liqueurs. We Saskatchewanians are the most hospitable folk you’re likely to meet even though we live in a most inhospitable climate. Our winters are bitterly cold and long, lasting six months, or more, and reaching lows of -40º Celsius. Our summers are short and hot, averaging 30-40º Celsius. But because of these extremes, nature is kind and has rewarded us with the best growing conditions for grains and fruits, the most amount of sunshine in Canada, as well as an plethora of the purest water on earth. Believe it or not, but we have over one hundred thousand fresh water lakes in our province.
