  • 16 times distilled liquor of verious flavors. Check them out make sure you go latest 4:30 to do the tour. Taste tests and complementary drink are offered after the tour. You will not be disappointed. They definitely have a great little store. Shop for a perfect gift for the "drink connoisseur" in your family. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU VISIT TODAY!
  • 5 of us went today for a free tasting and tour. It was super interesting to see how they make over 50 products using locally sourced ingredients like fresh raspberries , garlic, etc. and how they're able to make it soooo ridiculously smooth compared to the big brands. The Caesars that you can make with their garlic or haberno lime vodka is off the charts. Of course we brought home a couple bottles that were too good to pass . We got to try a variety of their products and at the end they make you a complimentary cocktail of your choice. Such a fun Saturday afternoon date idea !!
  • Highest quality products made locally with pride! Thourghly enjoyed a whiskey tasting hosted by Geoff at Chartier. We loved hearing the stories behind the labels and the process of crafting each liquor...what an art! I highly recommend bringing your out of town guests to a Rig Hand event or tour of the distillery. Our whiskey experts from Ireland were delighted with the experience. Thank you!!
  • Local, and they support local! Enjoy a distillery tour, mingle with the team of great people there. Try a couple drinks. The garlic vodka is amazing and when they say double double is better than baileys it is true! You can buy in local liquor stores but you will get a better price going direct!
  • Took a tour of the distillery with the Leduc Chamer of Commerce last month. Very impressed with the operation and with the people working there. I love the fact everything is locally purchased and the distillery supports local businesses. Purchased a bottle of Rig Hand Coffee Cream Double Double last week. The bottle cost $38.00 which is not cheap. I am sipping a glass as I write this review, I must say it is the finest alcoholic beverage I have ever tasted in my life. Worth every penny and this business has definitely earned my patronage.
