About Us

The Country Garden Liquor Store has always been about variety and one of the best collections of rums in Canada. Serving Camrose since 2000, it initially provided product to the Pair-a-dice Rum Lounge located next door as well as to the public. In 2000, Daniel Van Kesterern became the sole proprietor and the obsession for rums began in earnest.

From its inception the Country Garden Liquor Store has recognized the importance of giving back to their community. As such they have been a proud sponsor of the following organizations, among others:

Staff Recommending Rum


“What can one say about a liquor store? Great selection? Check. Quick and efficient service? Check. Friendly staff? Check. Convenient hours? Check. All benefits of the Country Garden Liquor Store.

But passion and knowledge is what sets the Country Garden Liquor Store apart. On numerous occasions I have bumbled into the Country Garden Liquor Store with a half-baked plan looking for advice. I ask Dan and his staff questions like:

‘I’m going to a fancy do and I need a gift for someone I barely know’ or

‘My wife likes birthday cake and musicals, what kind of wine should I get her?’ or

‘I need a bottle of rum for a rum guy’

And every time, no exception, Dan and his team, without hesitation, start walking me directly to the spot on the shelf where the perfect piece to my puzzle is sitting. It’s like having my very own concierge for all things drinkable.”

On behalf of the Camrose Fish & Game Association, thank you for your wine donation. WE auctioned off the 2 bottles for the first two tables and raised $700.

I had the privilege of referring Dan Van Kesteren form the Country Garden Liquor Store to my father-in-law Gord In July 2019. Upon arrival at the store we were greeted by staff and Dan personally. Dan dropped everything he was working on to make time for our needs.

Dan behaved with the utmost professionalism and knowledge. He brought his vast experience with supplying liquor for weddings, all while catering to individual wants and needs.

His suggestions were with complete certainty in my mind that a client first approach was his main priority. In a time where there are far too many high pressure and volume sales tactics, Dan’s main priority was to ensure we had enough liquor but not too much while also having items that would be specific to our likings.

I would highly recommend Dan Van Kesteren form the Country Garden Liquor Store for any of your special events or individual needs.

Thank you for your generous sponsorship towards the Nordlys Film and Arts Society. The beer was a special treat that we offered to our attendees and it made our event that much more festive. We are grateful  to have you share in our success and are looking forward to working with you next year.

“I am proud to say Country Garden is Masterpiece Event’s liquor store of choice. I have placed many event orders with Dan and even on short notice he is able to fill my order. Dan keeps up with new trends and always has something different for you to try. Country Garden also supports local and has very friendly staff. These are just a few of the reasons why we love The Country Garden Liquor Store. Stop in, see Dan and try something different tonight.
