See Where Our Spirit Begins

Best. Enjoyed. Just. Like. This.

Reassuringly premium, Spirit of York begs to be savoured. We meticulously produce our spirits from grain-to-glass, so that you may enjoy just one glorious moment in your glass. Committed to crafting Canada’s best tasting spirits, we marry time-honoured distillation techniques with state-of-the-art equipment to produce some of the very finest, premium spirits you will ever taste.

By controlling the entire process on-site, from grain-to-glass, we’re able to uphold our high-standards throughout. And by distilling only once, we’re able to ensure impurities are removed leaving only the purest, highest concentration - for spirits infused with flavour.

For too long, the prevailing belief was that vodka should be odourless and tasteless. But we’re not interested in the status quo, we’re interested in raising expectations. So, the next time you raise a glass and say cheers, let Spirit of York help you to raise your glass a little higher.

View Our Story


  • Mashing

    Local Canadian Rye from the farming communities of Ontario
    combined with water from the township of Springwater, recognized as the purest
    water in Canada, are carefully cooked together in the Mash Tank.

    Tour & Taste

  • Fermentation

    We add selected strains of Distillers Yeast into the Mash.
    The Yeast converts the sugars into alcohol. We help the Yeast work even harder,
    by carefully adjusting and controlling the fermentation temperature.

    Tour & Taste

  • Distillation

    Distillation in our state of the art Copper Pot Stills
    allows us to carefully extract the “Soft Hearts” of the liquid
    and remove the volatile “Heads” and oily “Tails”.

    Tour & Taste

  • Finishing

    Our Vodka is ready right off the Stills, but we let it rest in order to aerate.
    For our Gin, we take our soft slightly spicy rye vodka and let it
    soak overnight with a selection of the finest local and exotic botanicals.

    Tour & Taste

  • Blending and Bottling

    All our Spirits are cut to bottle strength with our pure Canadian Water.
    Nothing is bottled until it is worthy of the Spirit of York name.
