ABOUT AMPERSAND Distilling Co.


Ampersand Distilling Company launched in October 2014. We are a family run craft distillery located in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. Our 1000L mash tun, 1000L pot still, and revolutionary 500L column still were designed and built by father-son duo Stephen & Jeremy Schacht.

Ampersand Gin bridges the gap between London Dry & New Western – at once a classic, yet with a twist. The bouquet is floral, bursting with citrus & juniper. The mid-palate offers spice from cardamom and the finish gives way to earthier botanicals like angelica & orris root. These botanicals shine against a background with body, sweetness, and a creamy mouth feel from our wheat spirit.

Per Se has a creamy mouth-feel and slight sweetness thanks to the organic BC wheat base. We start from scratch, milling organic BC wheat, fermenting it on site, and distilling it with nothing other than our own spring water and ingenuity. This unfiltered vodka is perfect by itself or mixed in cocktails.
Why ampersand? Some say the ‘&’ symbol signifies a closer collaboration than the word ‘and’ – very fitting for our family venture. We are all about bringing things together. Science & art. Technology & tradition. Ingredients & techniques. Family & friends.

We make delicious spirits designed to be a staple on your bar. What will you bring together? Share your creations with #whatwillyoubringtogether and tag us @ampdistillingco. Find our spirits at Private Liquor Stores, bars, and restaurants across BC.
