Greetings Shelter Point Community
It’s officially Fawning Season in this neck of the woods, and Shelter Point Farm is teeming with new life, which includes our local Black-Tailed Deer population giving rise to a new generation. We’ve also had our first Black Bear sighting of the season at Shelter Point, always another sign of Spring in full bloom.
On the distillery front: You may have seen a post we put out on social media last week, explaining why you may notice a slightly different bottle design for our Shelter Point Whiskies popping up here and there in the near future. For those who missed it, due to an indefinitely delayed shipment of our classic Shelter Point Whisky bottles, we’ve had to make a temporary switch. These new bottles are quite similar in shape and style, but they don’t fit with our trademark glass stoppers. We’ve switched to wood-topped corks for now (the same as you’ll see on our Gin bottles), and we feel like it’s still a good look. Opinions are always appreciated however, and we’ve received a mountain of feedback on both sides. Whether you like the old style, or appreciate the new look, the consensus amongst everyone is that, “It’s the liquid inside that counts” and we couldn’t agree more!
On the tastings and tour side of things here at the Distillery: We are still closed to the public, however we have increased our volume of Virtual Tastings to accommodate the increased demand. Their are currently 2 different options for Virtual Tastings. The first being a whisky exclusive option which will include five 50ml samples of our award winning whiskies and the second being a spirit tasting which will include five 50ml samples of our spirits, Whisky and Liqueur. Both tastings kits will be delivered to your door and ready to sample along with a group of friends & new acquaintances, and are hosted by members of the Shelter Point team, including Distiller Leon Webb, Distillery Manager Jacob Wiebe, Distillery Spirit Guide Brian Ingle and Distillery Spirit Scribe Pat Dunlop.
