ONE OF ONTARIO'S TOP CO-PACKERS

We have worked with dozens of Ontario spirits and ready-to-drink spirits beverage brands. We can provide turnkey access to online, direct delivery, and direct-to-licensee sales. Our contract distilling services allow you to dip your toes into the marketplace, and focus entirely on building your brand and sales networks, while avoiding the cost and red-tape of starting a full-fledged distillery. 

 

We work with our contract bottlers on a batch-by-batch basis, which minimizes your downside business risk.

"At Farmhouse Spirits, we were looking for a contract distiller to  develop our unique carrot-based spirits. Don and team partnered with us and brought his expertise and innovation to help us bring our concept to reality." 

- Jennifer Quick, Founder

RECIPE & PROCESS DEVELOPMENT

We can make spirits from anything with sugar in it. We have significant experience working with non-traditional spirits inputs. Each recipe and product is unique, and we will work with you one-on-one to develop yours. We can work with very small batch sizes, suitable for LCBO product submissions. We offer flexible pricing models.

 

Most often used by:
 

  • Spirits or ready-to-drink beverage brands with a product idea, but needing the technical expertise to get it right

  • Farmers looking to turn excess/waste produce into an alternative revenue stream

  • New entrants to the Ontario market, to make test batches for LCBO sample submission or tasting panels

  • International spirits brands looking for a Canadian producer to avoid the complications of shipping and importing spirits to Canada
