Here’s to Canada!

What does it mean to be Canadian? It begins with embracing the cultures, backgrounds and histories that make our people unique — and wonderful! With that in mind, we asked LCBO Product Consultants to share how they celebrate. They told us about their favourite products and the special bottles that remind them of their own stories and treasured family traditions.(Click here to watch our experts share how they'll be celebrating this summer!)

Buon Compleanno, Canada!

Enzo Vincenzo Valpolicella Ripasso Doc

1704-CHEERSTO150-0.4-mspot-1

“Ripasso is a classic Italian red, and this one offers excellent value. It pairs well with everything from cured meats and mains to my favourite: spaghetti al pomodoro e basilico. We serve it in small cantina glasses, savouring the wine as we celebrate around the table.”

Sabina, Product Consultant, 1527 Rebecca St., Oakville

Magnotta Vidal Icewine

Geonbae, Canada!

“Icewine is my mother’s absolute favourite drink. Every holiday, I take home a bottle for her, which brings a big smile to her face. She puts it in a special hiding place. When my parents travel back to Korea, they always take this wine — not just because the Canadian flag is on the label, but because of the sweet apricot, candied peach and honey flavours. They call it the taste of Canada.”

Feliz Cumpleaños, Canada!

Patron Silver Tequila

1704-CHEERSTO150-0.4-mspot-3

“There’s no way to talk about Mexico without thinking of tequila. It’s in every home, and a part of every celebration and get-together. I love it served neat, in a small glass, with a slice of lime and chilled tomato juice. We call this cocktail a ‘ flag,’ because the colours match the Mexican flag. Of course, tequila also makes the classic margarita, and it pairs well with traditional Mexican fare.”

Heineken

1704-CHEERSTO150-0.4-mspot-4

"Heineken reminds me of sitting by the sea on a warm day and sharing a bottle of beer. It’s nice and light, with hoppy notes that go well with grilled octopus or saganaki cheese. In Greece, we share beers at the table, rather than each person having their own. It’s more fun that way.”

Voula, Product Consultant, 662 Burnhamthorpe Rd., Etobicoke
