History of the Brand:
With humble beginnings in a historic bank building in the heart of downtown London, Black Fly Beverage Company moved its operations to a state-of-the-art facility in the city's industrial quarter. Officially pegged as Ontario's first micro-distillery, Black Fly was founded in 2005 by husband & wife power team Rob and Cathy Kelly after being awarded the first Distillery License distributed in Ontario in over 100 years! Since then, Black Fly has not lost sight of it's vision to make premium spirit beverages that are less sweet and more natural, in ready to drink unique packaging (HINT: the bottle mouth is extra wide so you can put ice cubes directly in the plastic bottle!) and with the highest quality of natural ingredients. Check them out at blackflybooze.com.
The vote was not unanimous for our favourite Black Fly bevvy, so we had to settle with two. The Black Fly Vodka Cranberry 4 pack, a home-run creation and one of Black FLy's best sellers is 7% of pure cranberry deliciousness, and a must try for any ready to drink (RTD) cocktail lover. The other product we cannot get enough of is the ever so innovative Black Fly Tequila Shaker Shots. A must have for any socialite who likes to surprise guests with something new and exciting. It looks like green liquid in a test tube but I'll tell ya - I will sign up as a test subject any day. Both of these amazing drinks are available for 1 hour delivery through boozebuddy.ca !
