About Us

At Bon Vivant Spirit Agents we have a clear mission and philosophy. While we recognize that the LCBO does its best to make a fairly diverse portfolio of spirits available to the general public, it's our feeling that they can't move quickly enough to take advantage of the rapidly-growing artisanal spirits industry. We believe that there are amazing spirits are being made at smaller distilleries in all corners of the globe that are being overlooked in favour of large mass-market brands. This means that the emerging community of creative cocktail professionals in Ontario are having to develop their craft without access to a full range of flavours. It's like asking a painter to paint without using the colour orange, or a chef to cook without using basil. They can, but we're all the poorer for it.

So we are dedicated to finding these products wherever they may be and getting them into the hands of Ontario's mixologists, drink-slingers, bartenders and craft cocktail enthusiasts. If you're reading this and are looking for a brand not available in Ontario, let us know about it using our Contact Us page. If you're a brand interested in entering the Ontario market fairly quickly by selling by the case to bars and restaurants, reach out to us and we can guide you through the process.

We believe in every brand we represent, in many instances made by small distillers who started their business, like us, as a result of their passion for spirits and the many ways that the talented cocktail community uses them.

If you're a buyer of spirits for a bar or restaurant, we make this commitment to you. We will never drop in unannounced, we will always show up when we say we will, and we will always know the product we're bringing to you, including where it might fit in your existing back-bar and in which drinks we think it works well. Hopefully, as we develop a relationship with you, you may actually look forward to us coming in to see what new surprises we have for you. That's our goal, and we welcome your feedback to help us serve you better.
