St-Rémy wants to send you and friends on an adventure of a lifetime

Showing crew love could win you and three friends an unforgettable experience from St-Rémy.

The holidays are a time spent with loved ones, family and friends to show them how much we care. But in this digital age where times moves expeditiously, it’s easy for days and months to pass without realizing we’ve lost touch with the important people in our lives.

But for true friendships, time is a construct that doesn’t exist. Whether a week, month, or year has passed, good friends have a way of making it feel like it was just yesterday you were together.

When asked what makes a good friend, answers normally have one reoccurring trend; presence. Whether it’s a pick-me up after a break-up, dancing and laughing till the sun rises, celebrating new milestones, or simply listening after a long day — good friends are there for when you need them for moments big or small.

The qualities valued in friends — authentic, reliable, and memorable — can also be found in the world’s favourite brandy.

St-Rémy, the icon of Brandy, is bringing back crew love and reconnecting friends as they reminisce about the past while creating new memories together with it’s new What Good Friends Are Made Of contest. Canadians can share their friendship origin stories and celebrate what makes their friendships so special to win a weekend adventure with their wolf-pack.

Created in 1886, the “Oh-so French!” brandy is made exclusively from elegant varietal wines harvested from the most prestigious wine-growing regions in France such as Burgundy, and Champagne. Aged in small French barrels, with a smooth, complex and delicate flavour, St-Rémy Brandy is everything you want in a quality brandy. With more than a century behind the historical brand, St-Rémy understands loyalty, creating memorable moments, and knows what it takes to survive the test of time.

How to enter:


St-Rémy welcomes Canadians, 19+, to visit www.whatgoodfriendsaremadeof.com and share the stories, photos and videos of their crew love. Tell the story of how you met, what your friendships mean to you or how you define a good friend. Five groups of four friends will be selected as finalists. Submissions end on Dec. 12, 2018.

Finalists will win a trip to Toronto in January 2019 to attend an on-camera casting session. With a glass of St-Rémy in hand, friends will take a walk down memory lane sharing their most prized memories and what makes them squad goals.

Stories from the five finalist teams will be shared cross-platform on St-Rémy’s media channels. From January 21 to February 8, 2019, voting will be open to the public to vote for their favourite crew.

The grand-prize winning team will be whisked away on an unforgettable weekend. Winners will get to choose from an array of exciting adventures like dogsledding along Quebec’s Saguenay Fjord, getting up close and personal with polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba or have some fun in the sun with a beach vacation in Miami — just to name a few.

For more information visit whatgoodfriendsaremadeof.com and share stories before Dec. 12, 2018. The grand-prize-winning team will be announced once public voting closes in February.

Cheers to a life full of making memories with the people you won’t forget.
