In the summer of 1874 a detachment of 150 men from the Northwest Mounted Police marched west from Dufferin, Manitoba to establish a series of forts in the Western Frontier.
By the summer of 1875, they topped a valley rim in what was then a southern area in the massive Northwest Territories. They found an ideal location with two pristine rivers, forests of Spruce and Douglas Fir in the rich foothills to the west, and vast prairies to the south and east which were ready for livestock or the plow.
The fort that would eventually bare the name “Calgary” was built in the fall of 1875 where the Bow and Elbow rivers meet. First called “The Elbow” or “Bow River Fort” then briefly “Fort Brisebois” by inspector A.E Brisebois, Colonel James Macleod came up with the name Calgary after his home in Scotland.
1875 Vodka is a combination of clean mountain water and rich local grains, and named for the year of the founding of Calgary, Alberta.
