Oenophiles and spirit drinkers will find that Yaletown just got a bit more interesting. A few weeks ago, Icon Fine Wine & Spirits launched its new convertible, tasting-room style offices in the heart of Yaletown at 1152 Mainland Street in Vancouver. The street-level, loft space is a great blank canvas that easily allows for transition from an office space by day, to a private event and wine tasting room by night.
Icon Fine Wine & Spirits was launched during the 2010 Vancouver International Wine Festival and is officially celebrating its third anniversary under the Icon brand this spring (the company was originally founded in 2005 as Whitefish Beverage Agency).
A premium wine and spirit agency, Icon markets some of the world’s leading wines, spirits and ales in Western Canada. The company also owns a fine collection of labels including: 8 Wire, Hellbent and Shot in the Dark. Also unparalleled beverage alcohol brands: Square One organic vodka and Martin Miller’s Gin. Icon is noted for its portfolio of family owned boutique producers from the major wine producing regions of the world. Some notable brands include Lapostolle and Château de Sancerre,Kangarilla Road and Lange Twins.
