      As Internet commenters have continuously proven, being first holds little to no value in the grand scheme of things. But in the case of Long Table—Vancouver’s original micro-distillery—being first may very well mean being one of the best.

      Crowds of thirsty imbibers pull up to the spot’s lengthy, live-edge communal table every weekend, where they can sample a selection of award-winning spirits, like cucumber gin, the licorice-forward Långbord Akvavit, and Texada Vodka—all of which are concocted from fresh, handpicked ingredients in the 300-litre copper still that shines like a monument from behind the bar.

      Pop in on a Friday and you can even DIY your own gin & tonic or sample all three of Long Table’s impressive gins—the aforementioned cucumber, plus London dry and bourbon barrel-aged versions. And because all that sipping is bound to work up an appetite, you can expect to cap off your night with a rotating list of food trucks that are stationed outside the distillery every weekend.
