LAKE LOUISE, AB – December 14, 2023 – Renowned for its breathtaking national park surroundings and a compelling invitation for guests to indulge in unparalled experiences, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is thrilled to announce the launch of two new premium spirits, Fairview Winter Gin and Untamed Signature Whisky, produced in collaboration with Wild Life Distillery in Canmore. Marrying the curated moments that Fairmont is known for with the distillery’s commitment to quality, these libations offer guests of the chateau a most memorable wild-crafted cocktail experience.
Experience the Magic of the Season: Fairview Winter Gin
Blended with precision and a touch of holiday cheer, the new Fairview Winter Gin is a magical balance of juniper, grapefruit, and winter spices reminiscent of the season, while Saskatoon berries create its festive hue. Whether enjoyed on its own or in a seasonal cocktail, the Fairview Winter Gin promises to elevate the holiday spirit.
Embrace the Wild: Untamed Signature Whisky
For those seeking a bolder adventure, Untamed delivers a smooth rich flavour that reflects the wild beauty of the Canadian Rockies. Aged to perfection, this small batch 100% Alberta rye whisky boasts notes of muscovado sugar, black pepper spice, fresh forest floor, wildflower honey, and hints of fresh mint. Aged in White American Oak for 3 ½ years from barrels exclusively chosen by Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, it offers a memorable sipping experience – perfect for warming up on a chilly winter evening. Untamed won the Judges’ Selection Award for Canadian Rye at the 2023 Alberta Beverage Awards (91 Points).
Awarded as one of the top two nationally ranked bartenders at World Class Canada in 2023 – and listed on the Kostuch Media Top-30-Under-30 list in Canadian Hospitality for 2022 – Sam Clark, Regional Manager of Bars & Mixology for Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and Fairmont Banff Springs, is a firm believer that when passions collide, the sky is the limit. “We are delighted to finally share the fruits of our collaboration with Wild Life Distillery to guests from around the world as we unbox the stories behind Untamed Signature Whisky and Fairview Winter Gin”. He adds, “Both of these distinctive spirits truly capture the essence of the Canadian Rockies, and I welcome everyone to a taste of the chateau!”

Guests of Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise will have the exclusive opportunity to savour these exceptional spirits in the most enchanting of settings, whether enjoying Untamed in a “Signature Social Old Fashioned” in the Alpine Social, or sipping the winter gin in iconic Fairview Bar this festive season.
