The name of our com­pany is derived from naut­ical ter­min­o­logy and cus­tom. A main­brace is the line with pul­ley used to hoist the main­sail of the sort of wooden sail­ing ship tra­di­tional to Atlantic Canadian waters.

The term “spli­cing the main­brace” refers to the Royal Navy cus­tom of reward­ing a ship’s crew for a job par­tic­u­larly well done by serving every­one an extra tot of rum. To do this, the Captain gave the order, “Splice the Mainbrace!”

As a bever­age alco­hol agency in Atlantic Canada which is com­mit­ted to doing the job par­tic­u­larly well for our cli­ents around the world, what could be more nat­ural than to asso­ci­ate ourselves with the notion of Splicing the Mainbrace?

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
