    The Liberty Distillery established in 2010 on BC’s historic Granville Island is a true artisanal distillery. Selecting only the best BC organic grains, The Liberty Distillery carefully ferments, then triple-distills in their traditional hand-crafted copper pot stills configured with two sequential rectification columns, to produce premium quality spirits with true character and distinction.

    A family business, the Distillery is the realization of a long-held dream of Liberty Wine Merchants founder Robert Simpson and wife Lisa Simpson. Inspired by 35-plus years in the wine and spirit industry, Robert is legendary for his discerning tasting palate, presentations at the Annual Aspen Food and Wine Conference for more than 20 years, participating in tasting panels domestically and internationally, and is a well sought-after wine tasting expert. Lisa is a former international trade consultant/finance guru, culinary/pastry chef, business coach turned spiritpreneur.

    People often ask “why Liberty”? The answer is simple. The meaning of Liberty embodies and articulates the very foundation on which The Liberty Distillery was built. Life and liberty…it is about creating, sharing, learning, educating, and inspiring.

    Authenticity, quality, and heritage are the heart of The Liberty Distillery’s philosophy. “We’re passionate about our craft and are inspired by the exacting art of distillation” shares Lisa Simpson. The Liberty Distillery’s Mission is dedicated to… ‘hand craft the finest innovative and unique spirits from quality BC ingredients using traditional artisan distillation methods that inspire and contribute to the world of spirits’. We distill with one thought…”Make the best spirits we possibly can”.
