Black Fox Farm and Distillery has won ‘Best Cask Gin’ at the World Gin Awards for their Black Fox Barrel Aged Vapour Infused Dry Gin. This is the first time that a Canadian distiller has won a World Gin Award. The gin is unique to Saskatchewan because it uses triticale, rhubarb and flowers grown right on the farm where it is distilled by its owners, Barb and John. It truly is a farm-to flask spirit. The distillery also produces 4 varieties of gin as well as liqueurs and they are patiently waiting for the whisky to be ready in 2018.
Black Fox Farm & Distillery is the family farm of Barb Stefanyshyn-Cote and John Cote and their four children, which is located just outside of Saskatoon. The farm also grows flowers and other grains, holds family-friendly festivals and offers tours of their boutique distillery.

This year they have prepared a special 4-day package that includes fishing and cooking lessons with local ingredients – the ultimate northern boreal culinary experience.
