We have a bit of a love affair for the guys at Toronto Distillery Co. Not only do they make a great product but they also fight for the rights of alcohol producers in Ontario.
Recently they began a case against the LCBO to have them stop taxing alcohol sold on their own promises. You can read about it here.
Lets focus on the product though:
Recently we did a walk of the west end with some out of town friends of ours. We did all the great places including Rainhard and Junction breweries. On the way we made the stop at Toronto Distillery Co (which is literally next door to Junction) and did some tasting. We all had different favourites but my personal one was Batch 5, a wheat based spirit. To learn a bit more about how they make their product and who they are, make sure to check out the ‘profile’ link below in the related links section.
We HAD to pick up a bottle.
You can pick up a bottle at the LCBO for $39.55 and it sits at 50% ABV. You can also get a bottle at the distillery itself.
Here are my tasting notes:
Appearance: Clear like water. Nice legs.
Aroma: Earthy at first with banana and Grapefruit.
Taste: Soft and fruity. Bit of cinnomen and berries.
Aftertaste: Slight alcohol warmth.
Overall: Pleasant and well rounded.
