Their spirits are fermented and distilled on-site, following strict formulas, in order to honor and appreciate the venerable traditions of distilling.
Every stage of the triple distillation process in its bespoke handcrafted copper stills, built by German Master Christian Carl, is painstakingly controlled, from the fermentation of their organic grains to physically ‘making the cuts’ during the triple distillation process.

“Top notch professional and fun experience with these folks! They hosted a gin tasting webinar for my friends and I, and I’m so glad I picked this outfit to lead our evening. It was so inspiring to watch such wonderful and knowledgeable people pour their energy into something they are obviously passionate about. We had a great time and learned a ton! I would recommend working with them for any personal or professional event. Also their gin is delicious :)” – Christina Godlewska

Each batch is made with 100% Canadian grain-based alcohol and a variety of organic and natural ingredients, including foraged botanicals from the area. The distillery’s reputation for producing international award-winning spirits has grown thanks to its West Coast-inspired formulas.

“What a cute place. I spent way too long deciding on a drink because everything looked so delicious. The bartender offered some recommendations to end my indecision. The cocktails here are expertly crafted- always the right amount of sour, spicy, bitter, salty, and sweet to enhance what what needs to be enhanced and balance what needs be balanced. Went in for one cocktail, left after three, and for a moment, with the mind unburdened from pandemic pressures, life felt completely normal in the most dazzling way.” – Dania Clarke
Resurrection Spirits is reviving the heritage of making Straight Rye Whisky, White Rye Whisky, and Gin using 100 percent BC Rye Grain. Bitters, Fruit Brandies, and other excellent spirits will be added to their collection as they increase their understanding of the rye grain and their investigation of this magnificent component. Small distilleries used local produce ingredients to create high quality products with distinct essence and appeal before the amalgamation of spirit production in Canada. Before the amalgamation, small distilleries produced distinct rye grain based spirits that became famous across North America and the World.
