Heavenly Libations is a small business nestled in the fertile Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. We specialize in refreshing beverages inspired by time-honoured traditional Shrub recipes. All our products are hand-crafted in small batches using mostly in season and local fruits.
At Heavenly Libations we are currently creating Shrubs. No, not the kind that are green and have leaves, but the tasty kind you can drink! Maybe you haven’t heard of them, but in the days before soda Shrubs were quite popular. Using sugar and vinegar, they were a way to quench your thirst while preserving the seasonal bounty of harvested fruit. To us modern folk, drinking vinegar might seem like an odd thing to do, but it has been added to beverages since ancient times. These drinks are seriously good and your taste buds will thank you for the flavour adventure.
If you’ve tried Shrubs before you may notice ours are a little different than other brands. We don’t cook or pasteurize our Shrubs, and this “raw approach” gives them a distinctive fresh fruit flavour we feel is far nicer on the palate. This does mean our Shrubs need to be refrigerated, but you will find it is worth it.
Are you a restaurant/cafe owner? Are you a retail location? If you would like to carry our product please feel free to contact us!
Here at Heavenly Libations we like to mix things up… literally! We thrive off of creating new Shrub flavour combinations, but we also try to shop as locally and as seasonally as possible, so flavours are in limited supply (until next harvest season, of course). Keep checking in! Although our flavours may change with the seasons, they will always taste delicious.
We have 3 year-round flavours:
Our current seasonal flavours:
Raspberry Rosemary Blackcurrant Shrub 355 ml (picture coming soon!)
Sour Cherry Cacao Shrub 355 ml (picture coming soon!)
We’d love to hear from you! Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.
