Behind a narrow red storefront on Victoria Street, this self-proclaimed “liquid deli” is a cross between a liquor store and an old-fashioned apothecary shop. Inside, the open wooden shelves are lined with row after row of Italian glass demijohns in a variety of shapes and sizes. The containers are filled with both alcoholic and nonalcoholic products, which range from Tuscan olive oils and fruit-infused vinegars to organic rhubarb vodka, gooseberry gin, and aged single-malt whisky. The staff encourages customers to sample the products, which are then individually bottled in the patron’s demijohn of choice.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
