Directory of Micro-Distillers in Canada


Microdistilling is growing in leaps and bounds here in Canada. Three or four times each month we learn of someone who is intent on starting a new distillery. How encouraging for a lover of fine spirits. If only it was as simple as having a dream. Of all the nascent micro-distillers we've heard of over the years, only a few have made any significant progress. And there is one simple reason for this. Before they start looking at stills, before they design their logos or launch their websites, they need to prepare a detailed business plan, a REAL business plan. Most people just have no idea how to do that.Two primary things lead to failure in launching and operating a new micro-distillery: Lack of detailed, long-range business planning, and under-capitalization - not enough money. If you are planning to become a distiller, do your homework and prepare a detailed plan. If necessary, hire a professional to help you, but do your own research. Despite the odds, the distilleries listed below have succeeded in getting launched. Each has an operating still and each has spirit for sale to the public. And each of them is run by people who know it takes long hours to make a dream come alive. You will be tempted to ask them to help you with your business plan, but remember, the hard questions, the technical questions, the legal questions have to be answered by you, the person who will be investing their time and money in the new distillery. If you are one of the many hopeful new distillers, good luck.  Once you are operational, or close, let us know and we'll do our best to get the word out about your distillery.  In the mean time, follow your plan!Bloomfield Ontario Prince Edward County66 Gilead Distillery (now called Kinsip)Bloomfield, OntarioK0K 1G0 Vodka, gin, rum, whisky, shochu.
