December 16, 2013, Toronto, ON – Right in time for the holidays, Toronto Distillery Co. is thrilled to announce the release of Batch #1 of their Ontario Organic Wheat, Canada’s first and only certified organic white whisky. Available at LCBO stores across the province, this unaged moonshine whisky is distilled entirely from organic soft white winter wheat harvested in Schomberg, Ontario and milled in nearby Beeton.  It is mashed, fermented, and distilled entirely at Toronto Distillery Co.’s facility in the Junction.

Listed in Whisky Advocate’s 2013 Winter Buying Guide, it was awarded the highest score for an unaged whisky. Bottled at a flavourful 50% a.b.v., this 100% soft wheat spirit gives off a smooth huge cereal taste with hints of violet and pepper. Batch #1 represents an historical rebirth for the city, as it is the first whisky to be distilled in Toronto in generations. Get it while supplies last!

About Toronto Distillery Co. 
The Toronto Distillery Company was founded in 2012 by two high school* friends intent on distilling Ontario's agricultural bounty. We believe that what's harvested for the spirit is as important as how it's distilled, and we're committed to sharing the whole story of our spirits, from field to glass. All our spirits are produced entirely on site from the harvests' of Ontario's organic farmers. By operating within organic channels, we can distill spirits free of synthetic pesticides and chemicals, exploring the province's geography as naturally as possible. We also benefit from the traceability standards inherent in organic production, meaning we can link each bottle to a specific harvest, and share that information with our customers. All of our spirits are mashed, fermented, and distilled on site - we do not and will never purchase bulk spirits. The distillery is located in the Junction neighbourhood of Toronto, and is the first new distillery to be licensed in Toronto since 1933. For more information, please contact us at or 90 Cawthra Ave., Unit 100, Toronto, ON M6N 3C7, T: 416-558-5523.
