It's like having your own distillery, only with better equipment, and without the worry of the police knocking down your door. Here's how it works:

  • You pay up front for distilling services, to cover the cost of making the spirit.

  • Choose your mash bill, cask, barrel char, and cask strength - which we're happy to help with

  • You can make the spirit yourself with our guidance, you can help us make the spirit, or we can make it for you - for any or all of the steps of mashing, stripping, finishing, diluting, and casking

  • We store and age the spirit, and you pay an annual fee for storage.

  • Each year on the anniversary of casking, we check on how it's progressing by doing a barrel pull and comparing it to last year's. You can be there, or we can mail it to you within Canada.
