Realizing the red-tape nightmare ahead of them in opening a distillery in Ontario, they knew a team was necessary to get this project off the ground. Knowing Mike's love of whisky and entrepreneurial spirit, he was the natural choice to join the team. That's when the real fun - and hard work - began. Experimenting, studying and McGyvering. Each setback became a lesson. The team has grown, with Brandon, Shawn and Fred adding their talent and energy to the team. We have a new facility and bottle shop. And we've honed our distilling processes with upgraded equipment and more experience.
