Distillery · Food & Drink
Strathcona Spirits is born of several strokes of fortune; good timing, bad timing, faith and despair in good measure, resourcefulness, and good old fashioned hard work.

And, most importantly, the help of many good friends who have helped with their skills, trucks, connections, cool ideas, and warm bodies on construction, R & D, equipment runs to the West Coast and south across the Mississippi, from Arkansas to Kansas, to Graceland, through the Ozarks, even down to Wetaskiwin, Nisku, and the oft despised Cowtown.

This project is based on a fascination with the real alchemy of distillation, the collection of essence, purification, science, botanicals, wood, time, and the natural world. Also upon a keen desire to once again harness the sustainable traditions of the past that have been made inaccessible by archaic law and powerful corporate lobbies. Lastly we were founded on an interest in our history of spirits and Edmonton's place in it.

We are Edmonton's first distillery, not since prohibition, but ever. Our small team will develop an expanding line of fine spirits that will attempt to embody the essence of Edmonton and the land surrounding it by using locally grown and sourced ingredients and partners.

Our physical location is an important part of our history as well; as it's story continues to be written, we move from acting as a hosting space of strange, wild revelry and artistic expression, to trying to harness and bottle the expression of pure, locally grown flavour.

  • Took the tour of the smallest distillery in North America. $10.00 for the tour (refundable if you make a purchase). Well worth the money. Incredibly interesting one hour tour. Try it it is well...  more »
  • I'm a big fan of learning about the people and processes behind a brand, and was so happy Strathcona Spirits offered a tour for curious minds. We were cheerfully greeted by one of their team members.....  more »
  • Saw them at the downtown farmers market and decided to try their gin. Mix an old fashioned with their cask aged gin- you won't be disappointed.
  • Delicious Vodka and Gin! The Distiller tour was very informative and interesting. Thanks for showing us around!!
