At Co-op Wine Spirits Beer, we know you want quality products and are also looking for the best value. That’s why we’ve created a full lineup of premium Co-op brand beer, spirits and wines.
Co-op makes private label products designed with you in mind; our beer, wine and spirits are all top shelf quality, but without the premium price tag, meaning you can set up your home bar to perfection, or pour a dram of your favourites without sticker shock.
Co-op Private Reserve Wines
Co-op Private Reserve is the kind of wine that shows maturity and taste; these wines are perfect for those just starting out experimenting with wine, but they also hold up to the scrutiny offered by someone with a more refined palate.
“It’s the hallmark of someone who enjoys the finer things in life, but is smart enough to score a great deal on them,” shares Co-op Wine Spirits Beer’s Lana Turner. “Sourced from around the world, curated by our sommeliers, and only available at Co-op Wine Spirits Beer, Co-op Private Reserve is proof you don’t need to break the bank to enjoy premium wine.”
Beer needs to be refreshing, and tasty enough that you can bring some to share with friends. Co-op makes an entire lineup of beer so that there’s something for every preference.
If you take a peek at the side of the can, you’ll see what makes Co-op Beer great; it’s locally brewed by one of Calgary’s finest craft breweries, to our exacting specifications.
“Big Rock Brewery is one of Alberta’s oldest breweries, established well before craft beer was even a trend,” says Turner. “We worked with Big Rock to create an array of beers for Calgarians that we know they’ll enjoy.”
Co-op branded Pilsner, Lager, Light Lager, Red Ale and IPA are all readily available from Co-op’s big, cold coolers. Can’t decide which one to try? Co-op’s Variety Pack of all natural and batch brewed Co-op beer is the way to have it all with no commitment… yet!
Building a professional-level bar at home can take time. You need a variety of basics and some specialty liquors too, and that can add up. Choosing Co-op branded Vodka, Artisanal Gin, Rye Whisky, White Rum, Spiced Rum, Irish Whiskey, Bourbon and Carruther’s Irish cream means you can keep all the basics on hand for whenever cocktail inspiration strikes.
How authentic do these taste? Co-op Spiced or White Rum come straight from the islands of Barbados so you know it’s the real deal. Co-op Vodka is distilled five times for the ultimate in purity; just like what the finest distillers do. Co-op Artisan Gin is distilled in small batches and slowly steeped with juniper, lemon peel, orange peel, coriander, liquorice and a few secret ingredients to bring out just the right notes. Co-op Bourbon comes to us right from Kentucky and its corn mash bill delivers deep, rich flavour with spicy notes of honey, citrus peel, malt, butterscotch and vanilla. Finally, Co-op Carruther’s Irish Style Cream blends premium Irish whisky with chocolate, caramel, and other natural flavours to create a creamy and scrumptious alternative.
You don’t need to decide between splurging on top shelf products, or opting for a lower cost product that’s inferior in quality. Because you can trust the quality of Co-op branded beer, wine and spirits, you know you’re getting outstanding products at a great value.

Every city has its beloved breweries, and Calgary is undoubtedly no exception.
For wine drinkers, winter tends to be the season of robust reds, ports, and full-bodied vintages.
Any wine lover knows that, like food, wine tastes change with the season.
This Valentine’s Day will be less fabulous dinner out in a packed restaurant and more cozy evening in at home.
Sometimes choosing a great wine can be overwhelming; there’s so much choice out there that it can be difficult to know which brands to trust.
While we may not get to spend the holidays physically together, we can at least share the moment virtually.
There is nothing quite like the perfect cocktail to set the mood for the holidays.
This holiday season one of our favourite ways to feed family, friends and folks is to set up a grazing station and let everyone nibble…
