Craft Spirits

From grain to glass, shaken or stirred to perfection.

Craft distilleries are on the rise in the region, due to increasing interest in spirits made with local ingredients. Forty Creek Distillery has been a stand-by in Grimsby since 1992, and is still going strong!

A local staple, and considered the trendsetter for newer distilleries, is Dillon’s Small Batch Distillery in Beamsville. Best known for their gins, and unique bitters, Dillon’s hand-crafted spirits are made with produce from within the Twenty Valley, and their popularity grows with every new beverage release.

Craft Cider

An Apple a Day

From an early age many of us were served delicious chilled apple juice as a treat on a hot summer day. The sweet explosion continues in popularity featuring a more serious juice for adults. Hot on the heels of the craft beer craze, craft cider exploded into popularity as a favourite for beer lovers and a delicious option for non-beer drinkers alike. With the region’s agriculture, it’s no surprise that Niagara ciders have really taken off.

 

 

Drinks & Dining

As the craft beverage industry continues to blossom in Niagara, there are more and more collaborations between chefs, restaurants and craft beverage suppliers, featuring seasonal flavours. When the artisans come together, magic happens on the plate and in the glass. Taste the energy, pride and passion in small batch cooking, brewing, distilling and of course in winemaking too. Never forget about the grapes.
