Siciliano's Market News, August 12 Edition

This week's list of new and returning products follows information about our 2021 beer and wine making sale



Preamble by Steve Siciliano


We are pleased to announce that the 2021 edition of the Siciliano’s Homebrewing & Winemaking Customer Appreciation Sale will begin on Monday, September 6, and will continue through the close of business on Sunday, September 12.


Our annual Customer Appreciation Sale is a great time for beer- and winemaking enthusiasts to stock up on supplies and upgrade equipment.


Attention Wine Makers: If you plan on stocking up on wine making kits please email your orders to me (steve@sicilianosmkt.com) by Sunday, August 29, and the kits will be put aside for you. Go here for product codes and retail pricing.


During the week-long sale, most equipment, supplies and ingredients will be 15% off the everyday retail price. Items that are already discounted (carboys, 50/55-lb. bags of grain, Blichmann Engineering products) will not be eligible for additional discounts, nor will the 15% be combined with other existing discounts (like club discounts). We will honor the discount that is greater.

Featured Spirits of the Week


Empress 1908, Gin, Canada, $42.09/750ml- Handcrafted in small batch copper-pot stills, Empress 1908 Gin is a collaboration between Victoria Distillers and the legendary Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia. On top of traditional botanicals, we add a signature blend of black tea served at the Empress Hotel and butterfly pea blossom, an exotic herb that balances the traditional citrus notes of gin with a warm herbal earthiness, and gives the gin its natural indigo colour. Empress 1908’s combination of exquisite taste, delicate aroma, soft texture, and remarkable presentation provide the perfect base for a new aesthetic of cocktail creation and enjoyment. (Source)
