Distinctly Vancouver Island.
Uniquely Shelter Point.

Shelter Point Distillery
Pure water, Canadian grain and sea air.


Welcome to Shelter Point Distillery. Located in Campbell River on Vancouver Island, we are proud to craft some of the highest-quality single malt and single grain whiskies in North America.

Situated along the oceanside and surrounded by 380 acres of farmland, our selection of uniquely Canadian premium whiskies are made with traditional methods that allow our Vancouver Island coastal terroir to shine – including 200 tonnes of estate grown barley, naturally glacier-fed filtered water from our large aquifer, and salty sea air imparted on our whisky as it ages. At Shelter Point, we only use a single grain: barley. We do no blending: all of our grain is grown right here on the farm or purchased from other BC farmers and malted within the province.

Join us for a tasting and take a seat on our outdoor patio in spring and summer, or relax in our tasting room and cozy up by the fireplace during cooler months. 

We can’t wait to share our award-winning Vancouver Island Coastal Whiskies with you.

Vancouver Island | Coastal Influence 

Shelter Point Single Malt Whisky is a classic expression made in small batches using traditional methods, pot distillation and glacier fed aquifer water. Sitting on the coast of Vancouver Island the spirit benefits from the unique influence of our geography, ocean and terroir as it ages in different select casks. The whisky shows a balanced marriage of fruits, caramel, barley, baking spices, honey, seaside whiff, hints of wine, smoke and the sweet leathery mouthfeel of a high-quality single malt.

Oh Canada! If you haven't cottoned on to what's happening here, now is the time.

-- Rob Allanson, Whisky Magazine

It's a delight to drink and makes you want more.

-- Rob Allanson, Whisky Magazine

If we tasted this without knowing it was a Canadian single malt, we’d likely guess it was a Highland Scotch. Very nice malt.

-- Toronto Whisky Society

It is one of those whiskies that just got better and better the more you sipped.

-- Carissa Hickling, Whisky Lady

Defies my expectations for a newer craft single malt distiller out of Canada.

-- Josh Peters, The Whisky Jug

Frankly I was blown away that I was about to give such a young whisky such a great note... you should be watching Shelter Point like a hawk.

-- TOModera, Toronto Whisky Society

A profile all its own, one you wouldn't mistake for Scotch or American single malt, but recalling good things from both, and very tasty in its own right.

-- Axis of Whiskey

Another world-class single malt made right here in Canada.

-- Canadian Whiskey News

It may in fact be my favourite whisky of the whole calendar so far.  Shelter Point, I’m coming over.

-- Peter Vetsch, Pop and Pour

More than a nice discovery, I think I found a new regular bottle in my collection!

-- Dominic Drapeau, Facebook

I believe that this is the best single malt whisky in Canada!

-- J Han, Facebook

Beautiful and amazing both the Distillery and the product.

-- Adrian King, Facebook

Great product, great flavour whisky. Field to flask all ingredients off the farm, 100 mile diet just got better.

-- Norm McGregor, Facebook

Is there a higher rating than excellent? ... The place is beautiful and you will learn so much about the art of whisky making and the influence nature has on the product.

Shelter Point Farm:
the lay of our land.

Established in 2011, Shelter Point Distillery is located on 380 acres in Oyster River, BC, about halfway up the eastern side of Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada. The land encompasses 2,000 metres of spectacular oceanfront, a natural mosaic of streams, a salmon-bearing river, wetlands, forests and fields — all shared with native wildlife, from bald eagles and great blue herons to blacktail deer and black bears. Farmed for generations, Shelter Point remains one of the last seaside farms on the Island.
