To indulge or not to indulge – is that the question? For those of us hoping to moderate our alcohol consumption and/or caloric intake, the decisions we make in the liquor store can go a long way. In addition to the popular, “better-for-you” seltzer category there are many other alcohol producers making premium products for those of us seeking more health conscious products.

International Hot & Spicy Food Day

Expert Picks

Sunday January 16th, 2022 is “International Hot & Spicy Food Day”. In honour of this joyous event the NLC’s product knowledge team members are offering some of their favourite alcoholic pairings below. Thirst quenching, cold beer is many people’s first choice when consuming hot and spicy dishes, and is very well represented on our list. While spice is largely viewed as a wine killer, and can negatively affect wines that are high in tannins and/or alcohol, great pairings arise when wines are selected that have high amounts of residual sugar, and are therefore considered sweet.

Bubbles for New Years Eve

Expert Picks

Approximately 50% of all the sparkling wine sold in the world is sold during the last four months of the year! Even more impressive is the fact that roughly 25% of all the bubbles consumed during a calendar year is enjoyed between Christmas day and New Year’s day!! Whether you are into traditional Champagne or prefer Italian gems like Prosecco or sweeter Asti’s we have you covered at NLC Liquor Stores. Don’t forget Canada as Niagara in Ontario and the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia are producing top-notch sparkling wines these days as well! Cheers!!
