SHELTER POINT HAND
FORAGED BOTANICAL GIN
Crafted to perfection
Our hand-crafted botanical gin is distilled in small batches on our family owned distillery in Oyster River, Vancouver Island. What makes our spirit so bold and distinctive? Well for one, we use hand foraged local ingredients. The few ingredients we can’t find on our own farm are sourced from only the finest locations. We also use pure spring water that comes from a glacier-fed aquifer located directly beneath our land.
Nose: Juniper, zesty citrus and aromatic floral notes.
Palate: A balanced body of citrus, then a beautiful marriage of delicate spices.
Finish: A warming spicy finish.

Shelter Point Farm and Distillery
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 black tailed deer and black bears. Farmed for generations, Shelter Point remains one of the last seaside farms on the Island.
