This company (run by OF member Rizak) is well known locally for making vanilla extracts with rum or brandy as well as plain vanilla (made with neutral grain spirits). The first two are completely gluten-free.

They also make other items like DrinkPucks (soapstone whisky rocks in the shape of a puck) and growler carriers. Also, magnetic knife blocks from exotic woods.

We paid almost 40$ for 473ml of vanilla extract at Costco the other week. Unbelievable. The cashier asked us if we were sure we wanted it.

I found the very last couple dozen bottles of vanilla extract in a box at the back of my supplies cupboard. Send me a private message if you want some. I have 3 bottles of plain, and about 10 each of the rum and the brandy. $20 each.

We are no longer making vanilla extract.

The cost of vanilla beans is so astronomically high that it just can't be done.

Hopefully the future will see sanity return to the global price on vanilla beans so that I can continue.

On that note, we are completely sold out of plain and rum vanilla, but ...

If you know anyone who would like 10 liters of brandy vanilla, let me know at That's 85x 120ml bottles and is the last of our stock for sale.

I've tried the Brandy Vanilla which I found at the Manotick Village Butcher and I really like it. It makes the best whipped cream and hard sauce. The vanilla bean in the bottle is a nice touch. Kudos Rizak.

We used to carry Madagascar, Tahitian, and Mexican vanilla beans for our customers. The demand is so high now that it is impossible to find them.

I found about 200g of small Tahitian vanilla beans in the back of a cupboard if someone needs them. These are the last vanilla beans we have in stock.
