Introducing Angry Otter Liquor’s Exclusive Community Wines
December 21, 2023

At Angry Otter Liquor, our commitment to being your premier destination in BC for wine, spirits, coolers, and beer is unwavering. We take immense pride in curating a diverse range of choices that cater to every preference in our communities. That's why our latest collaboration with Kalala Organic Estate Winery, nestled in the heart of West Kelowna within the Okanagan Valley, perfectly aligns with our values.

Kalala’s BC VQA wine selection spans from light, crisp whites to robust, bold reds, sourced meticulously from organic vineyards spread across the Okanagan. However, Kalala is more than just a winery; it encapsulates a profound story deeply rooted in the essence of community and harmony. The origin of its name traces back to a legend shared by Kala’s founder, Karnail's grandparents, about the founding of his village in Northern India. An encounter between a wolf and a lamb, two seemingly opposing entities peacefully coexisting, inspired the farmers to relocate their village to this spot. They named it Kalala, meaning a 'Miracle Place' where such harmony could flourish.

The importance of community extends to the Community Wines. The Community Red 2022 blends Okanagan-grown Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Zweigelt grapes. With red plum and wild raspberry aromas, complemented by vivid red fruit and subtle smoky oak flavours on the palate, this accessible wine is a celebration in a bottle meant to bring people together to enjoy.

Equally compelling is the Community White, a blend composed of Pinot Gris, Pinot Auxerrois, Riesling, Siegerrebe, and Gewürztraminer. This wine has pear and yellow apple notes, accompanied by delicate floral undertones. Its honeyed finish, coupled with a nuanced sweetness, renders it an ideal companion for a diverse array of cuisines. A versatile, year-round sipper that appeals to many palates, the Community White embodies inclusivity and approachability.
