TORONTO — Forty Creek’s newest Nanaimo Bar Cream liqueur pays tribute in name and flavour to the West Coast dessert.

“Expanding our Cream spirit lineup has been one of our top priorities, so it’s a happy and much anticipated milestone to release the Nanaimo bar inspired cream liqueur,” said Forty Creek master blender Bill Ashburn, in a prepared statement. “We knew fans would fall in love with the combination of Nanaimo bar flavour notes and our Cream Liqueur taste. We wanted to offer aficionados an exciting new taste, blended with a familiar favourite.”

According to a company statement, the new flavour boasts hints of wafer, coconut, chocolate ganache, rich custard, and nuts. To the nose, fans will smell cocoa, coconut, and a slight hint of graham cracker. The finish and light palate of milk chocolate and butter is best served neat or on the rocks and complements coffees and cocktails alike.


A permanent addition to the Forty Creek portfolio, consumers can sip the Nanaimo Bar Cream year-round starting at the end of Sept. 2020 in Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta. In October 2020, the Nanaimo Bar Cream will be released for national distribution.
