About Our Campaign

After a century-long whisky drought in Perth, we started making whisky in 2016. 

Over the years, we’ve been able to put our stamp on contemporary Canadian whisky with innovative small-batch whisky releases. This is what we’re all about: a blend of the traditional with something entirely new and different that breaks the classic Canadian rye whisky mould. Our award-winning whisky speaks for itself.

We’ve built a cult following amongst Canadian craft whisky lovers. 

Our latest is called Lanark Highlands Rideau Whisky, named after the Rideau Trail. We start with first-use barrels from the best cooperages in Kentucky. We use high quality local grains from local businesses. And we use fresh spring water from Lanark County. The end result is a smooth, complex, distinctive flavour that leaves a lasting impression.

And we sold out almost instantly. This is where you come in... we need your help. 

We simply cannot keep up with the demand for our small-batch whisky and need to expand our distillery and production equipment to 5x our whisky production. 

We have applied and qualified for some grants that will let us get the new equipment we need. But we need to raise some funds and cash so we can spend it before our window for the grants closes in a few weeks. With this campaign, we are pre-selling vouchers for our future whisky releases. You can snag a bottle of our Rideau Whisky at a great price while supporting an Ontario small business.

We want to give the people what they want - MORE WHISKY.  Help us continue putting Ontario craft distilling on the map!

Have Questions?

This is expected to mature and deliver in December 2024. A voucher will be delivered immediately when the campaign ends in December 2023.

We have recently been approved for a few grants that will help us make a lot more whisky. But we need the funds to buy equipment before we are eligible for them. "It takes money to make money" kind of thing. So we are selling whisky at a reduced price!

Each voucher can be redeemed for one bottle of Lanark Highlands Rideau Whisky after the maturation date. You can redeem online or in-store at our storefront in Perth, ON.
