Shelter Point Distillery
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.

“As a young company in an industry where time is of the greatest importance, we can afford to be patient.”
Founded in 2010, the origins of the company are rooted in the decades we have spent growing up in and around the Scotch whisky industry, and our respect and passion for the spirit this history has instilled. With a label inspired by the classic elegance of an antique manuscript, the First Editions brand is the mark of quality which appears across our core range of single-cask bottlings of malt whisky.
We review our maturing stocks on a monthly basis, drawing samples from casks we believe may be ready for bottling. Always mindful of the benefits of a whisky being from just one cask, we will bottle it when we feel it is at its best for drinking rather than being influenced by “round” ages such as 18, or 25 years old.

With George Stephen and Associates
Edradour is a unique, single Highland malt whisky, to be enjoyed in recognition of those small, significant moments that make up the ebb and flow of life. Edradour is produced in Scotland’s smallest distillery – and is hand made today as it was over 150 years ago by just three men who are devoted to the time-honoured methods of whisky making. Indeed equipment used at the distillery has remained unchanged since the day the distillery opened and is only just capable of producing commercial quantities. Only 12 casks of whisky are produced a week, making Edradour single malt a rare pleasure for a fortunate few.
If you manage to find it, you will be one of the few people lucky enough to experience its charm – golden in the glass, smooth and creamy with a nutty, honeyed finish.
