Shelter Point

Shelter Point Distillery was founded in 2011, on a 380 acre farm in Oyster River, British Columbia, on Vancouver Island. Shelter Point is a true “estate” operation in that they grow their own barley on-site.

All of their products are made from this grain, and the water for distillation and dilution comes from a river that crosses their land. Founder Patrick Evans purchased the farm in 2005, from the local university which used it as an experimental farm.

But a portion of that land block was part of the historical Evan’s estate from way back. So the land has come back full circle. He runs the farm and distillery as an “artisanal” operation, controlling every aspect of production to craft his vision of a Canadian single malt Whiskey.

Since inception, they have expanded operations to produce a Vodka and the unique Sunshine Liqueur — a combination of their barley spirit, maple syrup, and botanicals.
