North of 7 Distillery 1733 St. Laurent Blvd., Ottawa
Not your grandpa’s hootch!
Vodka, rum, whisky, and gin … Did you know that these were being distilled right here in Ottawa? And no, I’m not talking about your grandpa’s secret backyard still and the ole family “recipe”!
It’s amazing that we have a small craft distillery right here in Ottawa producing exceptional spirits! North of 7 Distillery, located in the east end of Ottawa, includes a small urban equivalent of a ‘rickhouse’ where they store their rum and whiskey barrels, the production area with four stills, a bottling line, an excise warehouse where their spirits are stored before they are made available for purchase, and a storefront with a tasting area.
The Guild has arranged a unique opportunity for it’s members and guests to visit and tour the Distillery and followed by an intimate tasting with Greg Lipin, the man behind the project and the distiller of North of 7’s lineup of spirits.
After the educational tour, Greg will introduce you to North of 7’s carefully handcrafted spirits through a guided tasting of his White Dog unaged four grain whisky, Triple Beam Gin, Illuminati Vodka, Leatherback Rum, and if we are lucky, his Canadian Whisky which is still aging in the barrel.
The price includes a tour plus six or seven tasting, and a North of 7 shot glass.
