    We were staying out by turner valley and made a special trip to the distillery. They graciously delayed the tour to allow two of our friends to arrive (otherwise it would have be just us two). The tou...  more »

    I had written a story about this place, but this was my first time getting to go there. It's really worth the hype. They have farm to glass gin and vodka. You can do a tasting and a tour and get food ...  more »

    The Eau Claire Distillery is Alberta's first craft distillery. I had been hearing about this place for some time, and yesterday finally had the chance to visit. We were taken on a tour of their on-site production and storage facility, and learned all about the process of distillation, along with some of the area's colourful history with prohibition in the early 1900s. I had no idea that whisky had as much nuance as wine - nor that Alberta had such an intrigue filled history! This place is a true craft distillery in that they control every aspect of production - from growing their own grains to hand bottling and labeling their batches. From the time I walked through their front door my whole time there was an experience to remember - and to share... from being enveloped by the warm scents of spirit-making to finally getting to taste a "Tom & Cherry" cocktail in the tasting room following the tour (made with their own Cherry Gin). I highly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys fine spirits and local culture.

    Eau Claire is truly onto something special. I love the story behind the distillery and the continuation of distilling in Alberta. Everything is the highest quality here. Staff, spirits, and the building itself. Highly recommend the taste and tour package. Hope to see more from Eau Claire. I will be back.

    They know what they are doing. Great vodka, gin and cocktails. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Definitely do the tasting which starts at $6.50. Prickly pear is the best!

    Extremely friendly staff. Very knowledgeable on their craft and local history. Tour takes about 30mins, the guide will give you brief regional historical background followed by the explaining their distillation process. tour finishes by a short video in the barrel aging room. I recommend tasting/tour/cocktail package they offer for 20$. Cocktail recipes are also available for the taking.
