Grain to Glass

We perform every step step in-house, from selecting local grains to roasting and grinding to mashing, distilling, barreling and, lastly, bottling — for a difference you can taste.

Our philosophy is that to make a great spirit, you've got to start with great ingredients. We source our grains from Against the Grain, a family owned farm in nearby Winchester, Ontario. All of Against the Grain's produce is non-GMO, and the company is dedicated to renewing the production and use of locally grown heritage grains.

When you're sipping a North of 7 spirit, rest assured it was crafted by us in a small batch using traditional distilling methods. We most definitely do not buy neutral-grain spirits from bulk manufacturers, glue on a label and act as if we distilled it ourselves by hand.

Our whiskies and rums are aged until the taste and smoothness meets our exacting standards. Independent Stave Company of Kentucky, barrel-maker for most of the top bourbon distilleries, supplies our barrels. One of the things that sets our whisky apart is that our barrels are heavily toasted and lightly charred; most bourbon distillers do the opposite. The extra toasting imparts the distinctive vanilla flavouring and spicy accents for which our whiskies are known.

The final step is bottling. We carefully fill and hand-label each bottle that bears our name. It's the rewarding end of a long process, and we're proud to be a true craft distillery, producing premium spirits at competitive prices. We invite you to pick up a bottle, pour a glass — and savour the grain-to-glass difference.
