Distinctive artisanal spirits, handcrafted on the edge of paradise.

Shelter Point Distillery
Pure water and single grain
from the west coast of Canada.

Shelter Point spirits are distilled in small batches on the idyllic shores of Vancouver Island. But it’s not just our spectacular location that sets us apart. We’ve adopted a single grain approach, whereby Canadian barley is grown right on our waterfront family farm and never blended. Our other unique ingredient is pure spring water that comes from the mountain-fed aquifer directly beneath our land. When you add our exhilarating sea air into the mix, you have spirits that are distinctly Western Canadian.

INTRODUCING SHELTER POINT
SINGLE MALT ARTISANAL WHISKY

Sunsets and sea air:
unofficial ingredients
in every bottle.

Paradise isn’t necessarily a geographical requirement for making great whisky, but we managed to find it at Shelter Point. It’s here that we handcraft our 100% Single Malt Whisky, distilled batch-by-batch in traditional copper pot stills from two-row barley, and aged in white oak barrels in our oceanfront warehouse. When it comes to artisanal whisky, every element matters—and in our unique, temperate rainforest climate, even the sunsets and sea air become integral.

Shelter Point barley vodka distilled to the peak of perfection

INTRODUCING SHELTER POINT
CANADA ONE ARTISANAL VODKA

Canada’s finest handcrafted vodka:
there can be only One.

CanadaOne is named after the distiller’s cut—the purest one percent of a spirit that is achieved for a brief moment at the peak of distillation. To get to that one percent, we use one grain, from one farm, at one distillery. While seemingly simple, our vodka is unconventional, distilled in the same copper pot stills we use for our whisky, and from barley instead of wheat. Once it’s in a glass, there’s no mistaking it. CanadaOne vodka is as pure as the barley and spring water it’s made from—an unmistakably Canadian vodka.

SUNSHINE LIQUEUR

The impossible
made possible:
Sunshine in a bottle.

Perhaps if you saw the sunlight dance on the ocean waves near our farm, you’d wonder too: if you could bottle sunshine, what would it taste like? We thought about it and were determined to find out. Our answer: Sunshine Liqueur. Created in 2015, Sunshine is a small-batch, specialty blend of Canadian spirits and pure maple syrup coupled with a selection of natural extracts. Sunshine is available in two varieties, both bursting with flavour: Orange Spice Maple and Cocoa Maple Liquorice.

Shelter Point Distillery:
Come and witness the method to our magic.

It’s fitting that people who make their pilgrimage to Shelter Point Distillery discover a facility that’s undeniably cathedral-like. Locally sourced stone and lumber support a soaring, timber-trussed roof, while rows of windows cast beams of natural light onto the floor below. In keeping with Scottish tradition are the 18’ high, copper stills that dominate the space. Imported from northern Scotland, they are a quarter inch thick and unlike stills made of other metals, they are best at extracting sulphur, which invariably enhances smoothness. Our whisky, which is just making its debut, has been lovingly preserved for the last half-decade in very experienced American bourbon barrels. Are you ready for your pilgrimage? Tastings and tours are free, so please make plans to visit us soon.

Shelter Point Farm:
the lay of our land.

Established in 2011, Shelter Point Distillery is located on 380 acres in Oyster River, BC, about halfway up the eastern side of Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada. The land encompasses 2,000 metres of spectacular oceanfront, a natural mosaic of streams, a salmon-bearing river, wetlands, forests and fields — all shared with native wildlife, from bald eagles and great blue herons to blacktail deer and black bears. Farmed for generations, Shelter Point remains one of the last seaside farms on the Island.
