Illarion Shulakewych, 36, launched High Stick Vodka after returning to Canada in 2012 following a seven-year work placement in the Ukraine.
The vodka is created by Okanagan’s Orchard City distillery using Canadian wheat. It is distilled 18 times and is bottled in a hand-blown 750ml glass container shaped like a hockey stick.
“I kind of wanted something to celebrate Canada,” Shulakewych told the Edmonton Journal. “I did work and research to find a really good vodka, having tasted quite significant amounts and different kinds in Ukraine.”
