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 hand craft our 100% Single Malt Whisky, distilled batch-by-batch in traditional copper pot stills from two-row barley, and aged in American 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.

Tasting Notes

An enticing nose of vanilla, coconut, caramel and tropical fruits. The palate provides a delectable melody of juicy fruits and candied sweets, leading to a tantalising finish of spice, malt chocolate and a hint of salt.

SHELTER POINT
SINGLE CASK EDITION 5

Taste the Grainbow

 

Single cask edition 5. Whisky is poetry, but it’s also alchemy. Here at Shelter Point we’re always in search of the perfect elixir. This whisky journey began when we married together a blend of malted barley, unmalted barley and rye whisky. Aged in an ex-bourbon cask, then finished in French oak, this seven-year-old whisky is a bottle of gold at the end of the grainbow.

Tasting Notes
On the nose you get a slight spice and vanilla note. The palate if filled with caramel and honey. The satisfying finish is a delicious combination of a slight spiciness, chocolate and salted caramel.

SHELTER POINT
DOUBLE BARREL #5

A coastal whisky.

 

Our fifth Double Barreled whisky is a special collaboration with Vancouver Island’s renowned Coastal Black Winery. We hand-selected six of our finest Single Malt & Single Grain whisky casks and finished them in French oak wine barrels, previously home to Coastal Black’s Blackberry Wine. Aged in our American oak for 6 years, and then finished for 75 days in flavourful French oak, Shelter Point Double Barreled Whisky is a sensational marriage of spirits.

Tasting Notes
The nose reveals a deep, rich plum preserve with dark cherries, chocolate covered toffee and treacle. On the palate we found black forest cake, hazelnut and juicy wine gums with oak and forest berries. The long finish is warm and peppery with cherry pie and salted caramel.

SHELTER POINT
SMOKE POINT

A fireside dram.

 

Batch 2 of Shelter Point’s only peat influenced whisky. This single grain smoky delight has been aged in American oak ex-bourbon casks for 5 years and finished in casks previously used by a famous Islay distillery for over a year and a half. This special bottling is also only the second Shelter Point Whisky available in the 375ml format. The whisky is made from malted and unmalted barley and picks up influences of bourbon from the American oak cask and peated whisky from the ex-Islay casks. Sweet, smoky and complex, this whisky is perfect for a dram by the fire.

Tasting Notes

Smoke Point whisky is sweet, medicinal and smoky on the nose with barley sugars, iodine and campfire. The palate is sweet caramel, vanilla and sea salt, with peated warmth comforting the soul. The satisfying finish is a delicious combination of creamy pudding and a brand new first aid kit.

SHELTER POINT
MONTFORT 151

Home is where
the whisky is.

 

Montfort 151 is a truly unique field-to flask whisky. The name itself is the very lot in which the single-grain barley was grown, as well the coordinates to the exact field are included on every bottle. The Montfort series has literal grass root beginnings, each field that we farm has a distinctive district lot number, as well as site specific soil classification, and a proximity to the ocean and forested land. These collective characteristics grow barley in distinctive and unique ways resulting in unique flavor profiles from these micro regions on our farm. Montfort 151 is distinctively different than the Montfort DL 141, and Montfort 151 is a proud product of our distillery home.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, Montfort DL 151 has distinct notes of vanilla fudge, dried fruits and hazelnut. The palate is honed and herbaceous with a luxurious assortment of dark chocolate cherries, leading to a warming spicy finish, with lingering oak and almond nougat.

SHELTER POINT
THE FORBIDDEN


The whisky no one knew they needed

 

Shelter Point’s first Single Malt Wheat Whisky release has finally arrived. This whisky is the third different grain whisky that we have bottled. Named after our local landmark “Forbidden Plateau”, this small mountain and our whisky are similar as both shrouded in mystery. By using wheat as the base this whisky is truly unique and unlike anything we have ever produced. This whisky was double distilled and aged exclusively in American oak ex-bourbon barrels for 5 and a half years. The Forbidden was a small batch (only 667 Bottles) so get yours while you can.

Tasting Notes
The Forbidden whisky is sweet, medicinal and subtle on the nose. The palate is sweet caramel, vanilla and slightly honeyed. The satisfying finish is a delicious combination of a slight spiciness and almonds nougat.
