Did you know that BC producers create a broad range of local beverages designed to
quench your thirst? We’re talking about refreshing tasty beverages for the whole family.

Starting with water, you’ve got some beautiful refreshing or caffeinating options:


- Like a little fizz? BC producers are now making popular fizzy drinks, sodas
and tonics. There are a range of up-and-coming craft-brewed sodas made right
here in BC. Phillips Soda Works makes their sodas and tonics in Victoria!

- Want something with less sugar? Flavoured waters and spritzers are
growing in popularity world wide for their great taste without the calories

- Want to warm up with a cuppa local tea? Did you know that there is a
micro-climate in Vancouver Island’s Cowichan region that allows for the
domestic production of tea leaves?

- Coffees, yes, coffee can be considered a BC beverage if the beans are
roasted and processed here in BC. Make a choice to choose locally roasted
coffee and see what beautifully roasted, fresh beans make to your enjoyment of
your daily cuppa.

- Looking for non-dairy options? Check out some made in BC organic and
non-GMO soy beverages!

Ask your waiter or your grocer for beverages that are made in BC so you can make a
local choice that’s exciting and keeps your money in BC!
