Niagara Falls Craft Distillers
Posted by March 20th, 2020
Did you know that the Niagara Falls community began as a result of settlers escaping the American Revolution? At Niagara Falls Craft Distillers, we make high-quality spirits that tie together hand-crafted products and community legacy. With each batch, we capture both exceptional flavours and historical experiences, taking great care and effort to ensure that you can enjoy our small-batch whisky to the fullest.
When you visit Niagara Falls, you may be mystified by the falls, but the most exciting part is learning about the rich history of this area. With each of our products, we take historical moments in time, incorporate mist from the falls, and deliver small-batch whisky that captures the essence of what it means to be a part of Niagara Falls — past, present, and future. Get your taste of the falls!
The first bridge across the Niagara River was constructed in 1848. At Niagara Falls Craft Distillers, we bridge the gap between history and whisky with our state-of-the-art eco distillery, including a 1,000-litre copper kettle with stainless steel fermenters. The column still has 21 plates to distill all our clear spirits, providing a finished product that is remarkably clean and pure. The still is fully automated to control temperature and pressure for better consistency and quality. We distill to a very high proof before cutting our products with water filtered through our own RO (Reverse Osmosis) system. We use the same water that creates the roar and mist of the Falls, which originates from the largest freshwater ecosystem on earth.
At the heart of our small-batch whisky production, however, there is one additional thing that makes us unique: telling a great story. With every bottle that we make, we want to bring to life the historical and cultural events that make Niagara Falls a destination to appreciate and enjoy. As you walk the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge to pick up your next bottle of small batch whisky, know that you are tracing the footsteps of the first people to cross the mighty Niagara. Ready to add to the story? Schedule a tour or whisky tasting with us or shop our online store to experience a taste of the falls for yourself.
Over a century in the making, our small-batch vodka was inspired by the year the falls of Niagara froze. Centuries-old water, filtered through limestone, carbon and 100% grain, yields a five times distilled spirit. Distinctively Canadian, our vodka is a natural wonder. Enjoy ice cold!
Raise a glass of Barreling Annie Premium Canadian Whisky to toast Annie Edson Taylor’s feat of being the first person to survive riding over the Horseshoe Falls in a barrel! Her fortune may have been scammed away, but her fame endures.
Lundy’s Lane 1814 Small-Batch London Dry Gin is our commemorative nod to one of the most important battles ever fought on Canadian soil. Made from premium, locally sourced botanicals at our micro distillery on the battlegrounds, our handcrafted approach is our way to honour the brave soldiers.
This whisky will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the finest Speyside Single Malts from Scotland.
