Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery


1074 Cranberry Rd, Bala & Online e-store

Does your list include a wine-lover? If so, you’ll want to check out all of the delicious, cranberry-inspired wine products from the Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery this holiday season.

Browse the winery’s e-store to find the perfect bottle for the wine fiend in your life. Muskoka Lakes’ wine is crafted with quality, local fruit in small batches using traditional methods. This means you’ll experience a quality of wine that is unparalleled. The wines come in a range of styles, from dry to dessert, from full-bodied to light and crisp.

For a true taste of Muskoka, gift a bottle of Cranberry Blueberry Wine. The tartness of fresh, farm-grown cranberries balances well against the delicate sweetness of wild blueberries. Find it through the Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery online store or at select LCBO locations.

Looking for more of an ‘experience’ gift? Book a Tutored Wine Tasting afternoon at the farm for you and your wine-loving bestie. Together, you’ll sample 6 different wines, from dry to dessert, alongside knowledgeable winery staff. Please note that all bookings must be paid for in advance and cannot be rescheduled.

Sawdust City Brewing Co.


397 Muskoka Rd. North, Gravenhurst & Online e-store

Sawdust City Brewing Co., located downtown Gravenhurst, produces exceptional craft beer using a combination of tradition, quality, and innovative flavours. Offering year-round, seasonal, and limited batch brews, there’s definitely something at Sawdust City for fans of quality, micro-brewed beer.

Check out the brewery’s online store and order some cans for the perfect stocking-stuffer gift. Try the seasonal Viva La Stout brew, a flavoured stout with notes of chocolate, vanilla, graham cracker and raspberries. For something a little more conventional (although Sawdust City’s leading-edge approach to brewing is anything but conventional…), try the Little Norway Pilsner, a crisp beer that was developed with an appreciation for Muskoka’s rich history.

Purchase their beer through the Sawdust City online store or at their retail store on Gravenhurst’s main street.

Muskoka Roastery


Online e-store

Finally, Muskoka Roastery offers a different type of brew that is non-alcoholic, but just as mouthwatering. Their handcrafted coffee blends are a delicious mixture of quality and flavour, inspired by Muskoka’s stunning natural landscape. They’re also the first coffee roaster in Canada to source their beans directly from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms, meaning that through gifting a package of their tasty coffee, you’re also supporting social programs and sustainable farming.

Muskoka Roastery offers several different hand-crafted coffee blends, ranging from dark and full-bodied to light and airy. Numerous flavoured roasts are also available, including the decadent Buttertart and indulgent Jamaican Cream blends.

For the perfect coffee-themed gift, pick up the Truly Canadian Sampler pack. It includes 4 coffee blends inspired by the majestic Muskoka scenery, like Granite Roast. Or, are you buying for someone who just can’t ever get enough coffee? Gift them a Muskoka Roastery coffee subscription so they never run out.
