VANCOUVER ISLAND · COASTAL INFLUENCE
Shelter Point Single Malt Whisky is a classic expression made in small batches using traditional methods, pot distillation and water from our aquifer. Sitting on the coast of Vancouver Island the spirit benefits from the unique influence of our geography, ocean and terroir as it ages in different select casks.
The whisky shows a balanced marriage of fruits, caramel, barley, baking spices, honey, seaside whiff, hints of wine, smoke and the sweet leathery mouthfeel of a high-quality single malt.
