Since 2014 Top Shelf Distillers has worked tirelessly to produce small crafted artisanal spirits. In 2015 we started our journey to revive a 100 year drought of Perth Ontario barrelled and bottled Canadian Whisky.

What had started as an idea has developed into great success, taking home gold in the young whisky category of the 2020 Canadian Artisanal Spirit Competition. In 2020, we launched a sherry cask finished product that immediately excited whisky fans, and received prestige amongst our customers and connoisseurs alike.

Top Shelf Single Barrel Select

This one-of-a-kind program offers you the chance to be Master Distiller of your own whisky.

It starts with meeting our Single Barrel Ambassador, who will give you a tour of the distillery, sampling some options and working on the ideal flavour profile, which our distillers will handle on site.

Our barrels all start in Kentucky, using time honoured methods and the finest American Oak at the Kelvin Cooperage to develop a bourbon-like flavour in the finished product. Once the whisky has come to age completely on site, our in-house creative director will work with you to create the perfect label that will go on approximately 300 750ml bottles (due to the nature of whisky and aging, exact numbers are only predictions until we start the bottling process and determine proof).

This exciting and engaging experience is extremely limited. We are currently accepting offers on barrels of whisky that will reach maturity in 2022 and 2023.

What is Single Barrel Select?

A program aimed for businesses or private customers who are looking for a unique experience and personalized product. With the guidance of our Head Distiller and a brand ambassador you will have the opportunity to purchase an entire barrel of our bourbon style Canadian Whisky and customize the final product to your discretion.

The deep complexities of whisky are showcased best with single barrel picks -- the reason why they are highly sought after -- and with this program you can explore the characteristics and flavour profiles of whisky while choosing a product for personal consumption or resale value.

Cask strength whisky is another highly valued item- and with this program you are capable of choosing the ABV of your whisky, as well as a custom label before we bottle everything up for you and ship directly to your door.

Pricing, yield, and options:

Pricing starts at around $19,000. Each barrel yield is slightly different, but typically around 200-300 750ml bottles. Single Barrel Selections are extremely limited and based on what is available.

Options to invest in a barrel to age further are also available.

Our brand ambassadors are here to aid you in this exploratory journey from grain to glass. Further customizations are possible.
