All of our products are developed from start-to-finish at our distillery in Toronto. We do not buy "neutral" spirit and flavour it (as many distilleries do) - that's just not what we believe in. By controlling the entire process through agricultural input, yeast, fermentation and distillation, we ensure all of our small batch products are worth taking home to share with friends and family.

As a result of our limited fermentation capacity and dedication to the full life-cycle of our spirits, we will occasionally sell out of products or limit availability. We will do our best to update the status of our products below; Please feel free to drop us a line by email or social media for up-to-the-minute availability.

  • Harbour Rum

    An unfiltered and unsugared rum, made from organic molasses fermented with wild yeast, cultivated right here in Ontario. Harbour Rum is distilled and proofed to 44% ABV, touting a full-bodied earthy, fruity spirit that rum experts are raving about. Harbour Rum scored a 90 from, ranking it one of their best white rums in the world.

    Status: Available (375ml)

  • Lost Rivers Triple Sec

    Vapour infused with hops, cardamom, coriander and loads of orange peels (both fresh and roasted), Lost Rivers Triple Sec is a compliment to any classic cocktail that calls for Triple Sec, Cointreau or Caraçao. Only lightly sweetened, it’s smooth, but still holds its own at 40% ABV.

The Libation Lab

  • This series of spirits is our sipping playground; An opportunity to experiment with a variety of ingredients and flavour profiles right here in our workshop. These limited small-batch releases are often only available seasonally or as a one-off. Some releases will return, others will not, but we always promise you a unique hand crafted spirit with every batch.

    Below are a few of our recent and upcoming releases.

    • Grappa (Acquavite di Vinaccia)

      What better way to explore our family heritage than distill the spirit so abundant in our hopes growing up? Using Niagara Lakeshore appellation grapes used to make wine at Adamo Estate Winery, this unaged "grape brandy" is perfect on ice after dinner.

      Status: Now available!

    • Vodka, Input #1 (Potato)

      This vodka is part of our experimental series that focuses on a variety of local agricultural inputs to produce a clean drinking vodka. The first in this series is Canadian grown potatoes, one of the limited number of potato-based vodkas in the world (despite the belief that vodka is mostly made from potato!).

      Status: Now available!

    • Kasutori Shochu

      What happens to pressed rice and koji after it's been fermented into sake? We set out to give the kasu from Izumi (right here in Toronto!) a second life by distilling it into a kasutori shochu using a traditional single distillation. A North American take on one of Asia's most popular spirits.

      Status: Coming Summer 2017

    • Barrel Aged Gin

      A juniper-forward dry gin that we let rest in a Canadian Oak barrel we recently used to age a small batch of Apple Brandy. Using locally foraged juniper and angelica, this gin is light in colour, but huge in flavour - a gin lovers dream.

      Status: Sold out

    • Elderflower Gin

      We start with a dry gin, full of fresh organic juniper berries and locally foraged angelica root, then infuse it with fresh foraged Ontario Elderflowers. We slightly sweeten this one so it's great in a cocktail or just on ice.

      Status: Batch #2 coming Fall 2017

    • Limoncello

      It went from "Hey, my dad has a lemon tree...", to releasing a rich, semi-sweet dessert liqueur in no time flat. At 33% ABV, our Limoncello is the best lemon liqueur this side of Sorrento.

      Status: Sold out

    • Harvest Spiced Rum

      As the growing season came to an end, so many of our garden botanicals and spices needed a home. We vapour infused the botanicals (like a gin) with our Harbour Rum and finished this off with some toasted sugar and a touch of fresh vanilla bean.

      Status: Sold out

    • Milk Whey Vodka

      Lactose is largely considered an unfermentable sugar; Until you find the right strain of yeast, that is. We used excess milk whey from Monforte Diary as part of an event raising awareness about food waste, fermented it, and distilled it into a unique vodka. It's the first of its kind in North America and one of only a few available in the world.

      Status: Available for limited tasting only, Summer 2017

Yongehurst Logo

As two long-time friends with a passion for spirits, history and hand-crafting everything, we set out to explore our families' proud traditions, while looking to develop a few traditions of our own.

As the culture of whisky and cocktails continues to grow in Ontario, the selection of interesting and available spirits isn't keeping up with the demand. As big supporters of independent craftspeople, from brewers to bartenders to baristas, we saw an opportunity to fill a void and share some of our knowledge and skill.

Makers by nature and by nurture, our desire to experiment and balance flavour and science will bring a series of unique spirits to the people and place we call home.

After years of planning and experimenting, Yongehurst Distillery Company is finally here in Toronto and we hope you're as excited as we are.
