  • Having visited 3 years ago when this distillery wasn't even producing whisky, we were desperate to go back and travelled the length of the island to see how they were doing. What a lovely lovely place...  more »

  • Great spot for locals and visitors. Tours are well worthwhile and products are world renowned.
  • very fun place. super knowledgeable staff. good selection for this size distillery.
  • Ok, clearly the people before me, (who have given this such a high rating) have absolutely NO experience with whisk(e)y whatsoever. I gave this a shot since I am from Campbell River and felt nostalgic when I saw the physical location. Sadly, this dram is an insult (and should be considered fraud) at the price-point. At $70.00 per bottle, you can spend $40 less and would still be hard pressed to find something worse. Any (and I mean ANY) 10 or 12 yr old scotch at 15, 20$ less is far better. To it's credit, the nose is clean. (beautiful actually) I can actually smell some of the sea air they speak of in the write-up. But that is where the beauty ends. It is a (VERY) young whisky. It may be a good whisky 10 years from now, hoping the folks at Shelter Point have the good sense to let it age some. As it stands now however, it is extremely harsh, (being so young I'm curious as to why it was bottled at 46% abv instead of 40% as it would likely have been better, or at least less offensive).
  • Nice free tours, very informative and well described process. Shop staff was less than professional, but would return here. Looks like a lovely place to get hitched!
  • We enjoyed our tour immensely! What a beautiful treasure in the Comox Valley area‚̧

Where to stay in Campbell River

If you choose to stay in Campbell River itself, you'll likely find yourself in a friendly inn or guesthouse overlooking the estuary, where the river meets Discovery Passage. You can get a clearer view of the strait by staying on the coast, on the eastern side of town, where motels look across the water to Yaculta on the other side. Head farther south along Island Highway for even quieter coastal accommodations only a few minutes' drive from the local airport.
