Shelter Point spirits are distilled in small batches right here on the idyllic shores of Vancouver Island. What makes our whisky and vodka so bold and distinctive? Well, for one, we only use a single grain: barley. We do no blending: all of our grain is grown right here on the farm or purchased from other BC farmers. The other unique ingredient is the pure spring water which comes from a mountain-fed aquifer located directly beneath our land.
If you think we’d go to all the trouble of building what is only the second single malt distillery in Canada without showing it off, you’d clearly be mistaken. We’re extremely proud of what we’ve achieved and are eager to have you see and taste the fruits of our labour.Tours and tastings are free (yes, free). Tours happen Wednesday to Sunday from 12 noon to 5pm. Tastings are available 7 days a week from 12 noon to 5pm. Private tours are available too – please contact us for more information. Once you’ve been here and done that, of course, you’ll need to get the t-shirt… or the hat or the glass. For that, you’re welcome to visit our fully stocked gift shop. Our gift shop is also open 7 days a week from 12 noon to 5pm.
