Feel as if you were in the Roaring 20’s as you taste spirits and swill cocktails on ‘Lift Your Spirits!’ Learn of Toronto’s distillation industry both past and present in the Distillery District.

Begin by learning about the historic Gooderham and Worts Distillery in Toronto. One of the oldest companies in Canada and one with an interesting past as a large producer of whisky being sold into the United States during Prohibition. Enjoy the charming cobblestone streets and patios as we walk around the area. Next, visit the first distillery in the area since the closure of Gooderham and Worts and get a behind the scenes look at how an active distillery operates. Learn the origins of Vodka, Whisky, and Gin, and how to properly taste them. Enjoy a tasting flight of spirits paired with local cheeses and charcuterie.  Finish up with a cocktail made from your favourite spirit. (cocktails not included)
