Voted by Toronto Life as “The Best Place to Find Stuff Made by Local Designers”, the Distill Gallery is located in buidling 47, between The Boiler House and Bergo Designs.
The building’s history dates back to the mid 1880s, when it was built as extra storage facility. It was then that the Canadian Government enacted a new regulation that required whiskey producers to age their product for at least two years. This caused the need for a lot of extra storage almost overnight. Before that, the product was consumed and sold raw. Yikes!!!
If you take a walk inside the building you can still see some of the original catwalks that used to serve for the workers and supervisors to inspect the tanks. Some really amazing stuff in there.

The store itself has some neat crafty like accessories and it truly feels all Canadian!
