Judges selection in Gin in Culinaire Magazine October 2018


The distiller Paul Poutanen is of Finnish descent and “Tippa” means “drop” in Finnish.

Some notes from independent tasters:

“Clean, light, floral, citrus, spruce(?). Sweet & Warm with excellent smooth palate feel and finish, that heat ups nicely. Doesn’t taste like any other gin. Very unique.”

“Bright, smooth and lovely. ”

“It doesn’t taste like so many other gins, or cucumber or whatever, my dad and his buddies would love this – its so clean and smooth.”

“LoveBird Gin is aromatic and smooth, holds its own against Tanqueray and definitely packs a punch”

“Very nice bouquet…smooth…citrusy floral”

“You did not lie when you said it was smooth because I really could just sip that Lovebird on a little ice quite happily.”

“A wildly fresh, clean, and crisp Gin handmade in a nano-distillery in Okotoks – Tippa hits the perfect notes for a gin and tonic!”

“the smoothest gin I have ever had”

“This gin is so smooth it doesn’t even feel like you’re drinking spirits.  Paired with an artisan tonic water LoveBird Gin takes the simple Gin & Tonic to the next level.  I’ve been spoiled – there’s no going back now to flavorless bar Gin & Tonics.”

“Picked up a bottle this weekend – smoooooth and delicious! Great stuff!”

“Freezing cold Lovebird Martini….so crisp and clean and delicious!!”
