Mainland Whisky Surrey, BC: Craft Distilling, Live Music & Culinary Delights

April 21, 2024

Step into Mainland Whisky and prepare to have your taste buds tantalized and your spirits lifted – both figuratively and literally. Tucked within an industrial complex of Campbell Heights in Surrey, British Columbia, this gem of a distillery beckons those in search of a shining spot to unwind and indulge.

Founded by the illustrious Steve Watts, whose passion for whisky traces back to the deep south of America, Mainland Whisky is more than just a distillery – it’s a testament to craftsmanship and dedication. Steve’s journey, steeped in the lore and techniques of American-style whisky, culminates in a collection of locally distilled small-batch whiskies that proudly showcase the best of Canadian ingenuity and southern inspiration.

As you step through the doors, you’re greeted not just by the aroma of fine spirits, but by the warm ambiance of live music. The Sunday Sessions, hosted by the incomparable James Devon and Philly Dupre, transforms this space into a haven for music enthusiasts. From 2:30 pm to 5 pm, immerse yourself in the soulful melodies and infectious energy of a jam session that’s bound to leave you asking for encores.

But Mainland Whisky offers more than just music – it’s a sensory experience from start to finish. With limited yet tantalizing food options, including the mouthwatering pulled pork sandwich smoked right out back, every bite is a journey in flavor. Pair it with one of their expertly crafted cocktails, like the innovative Shrek the Musical or the robust Smokey Bear, and you’re in for a treat.

And let’s not overlook the classics – the cornerstone of any respectable whisky bar. From the smooth sips of the Whisky Sour to the sophisticated allure of an Old Fashioned, Mainland Whisky honors tradition with every pour. Made with the finest ingredients and infused with Steve Watts’ passion and expertise, every glass of Mainland Whisky tells a story. And if you’re truly dedicated to the craft, consider joining their whisky club for exclusive releases and perks that will elevate your appreciation to new heights.

But Mainland Whisky isn’t just about what’s within its walls – it’s a beacon of quality that extends throughout the province. With their products gracing the shelves of Cold Beer and Wine stores and adorning the menus of esteemed establishments like The Barley Merchant in Langley, Mainland Whisky is a testament to the thriving spirit of Canadian whisky culture.

So, whether you’re a seasoned whisky connoisseur or simply seeking an oasis of relaxation and soulful melodies, Mainland Whisky is the place to be on Sundays. From the smooth sips of their signature cocktails to the tantalizing bites of their smoked pulled pork sandwiches, every visit is an adventure for the senses. Make sure to mark your calendar, gather your friends, and come experience the magic of Mainland Whisky – where Sundays are synonymous with unforgettable moments, shared laughter, and the sweet serenade of live music. Cheers to Mainland Whisky!
