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.
Our third Double Barreled whisky is a special collaboration with BC’s renowned Quails’ Gate Estate Winery. We hand selected 5 of our finest Single Malt whisky casks and finished them in French oak wine barrels, previously home to Quails’ Gate Pinot Noir. Aged in our American oak for 5 ½ years, and then finished for 335 days in the flavourful French oak. Shelter Point Double Barreled Whisky is a sensational marriage of spirits.
