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

Experts tell us that the inaugural batch of Shelter Point Single Malt Whisky has a very nice spice with good barrel sweetness, fruit and floral notes and some chocolate on the nose. It’s nicely finessed with a good balance of complexity and delicateness. Translation? It goes down very, very smoothly.

INTRODUCING SHELTER POINT
CASK STRENGTH WHISKY


Limited edition,
limitless layers.

 

It’s a marriage made in whisky heaven. To create this limited edition of only 1,200 bottles, we took five casks of single malt barley aged in American oak and combined them with one cask of single grain rye aged in the same wood. We then finished the mix in a French oak cask, creating an incredibly rich, fruity whisky with layer after layer of flavour. Decadent and smooth, this blend will surprise you with its spicy heat and sweet finish.

Tasting Notes

Shelter Point Cask Strength Whisky is doughy on the nose with a hint of orange cheddar, and creamy like clotted cream with a dab of strawberry jam. The gently toasted oak flavour is enhanced with dill and light sugars. The palate is fruity with a bit of heat, although surprisingly smooth for a whisky of this strength and age. On the back end, the spices take over: candied fennel, licorice, burnt demerara sugar and oily earthy tones. The finish is light, fresh and sweet, drying as it fades.

INTRODUCING SHELTER POINT
MONTFORT DISTRICT LOT 141 SINGLE GRAIN WHISKY


Home is where
the whisky is

 

Raised right here on our family farm on Vancouver Island, Montfort DL 141 is a truly unique field-to-flask whisky. The name itself is the very lot in which the single-grain barley was grown, and the coordinates to the exact field are included on every bottle. Distilled in our traditional copper pot stills, aged in American Oak at our oceanfront warehouses, and bottled on-site by the Shelter Point family, Monfort DL 141 is a proud product of our distillery home. This limited-edition run is only 1,400 bottles.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, Monfort DL 141 has a distinct note of quince with almonds, green citrus, and a wash of plum. On the palate is homey fruits candied in sweet syrup, leading to an herbaceous and floral note finish. Add a touch of water to pull that fresh oak into the melody of fruits, and even find a delicate hint of mint.

INTRODUCING SHELTER POINT
FRENCH OAK DOUBLE BARRELED WHISKY


Finished to
perfection

 

Our first Double Barreled Whisky is a special collaboration with Vancouver Island’s Coastal Black Estate Winery. We hand-selected two of our best Single Malt Whisky casks and finished them in two French Oak wine barrels, previously home to Coastal Black’s Blackberry Wine. Aged in our American Oak for six years, and then finished for 1126 hours in the flavourful French Oak, Shelter Point Double Barreled Whisky is a sensational marriage of spirits.

Tasting Notes

A nose of brandied bananas, sweet toffee and caramel, with a marvellous hint of lemon sherbet and tobacco leaf. Salted caramel continues to the palate alongside golden treacle and a dash of white pepper. With water you can find youth in Jolly Rancher sweets, cola, and a creamy vanilla finish.
