Shelter Point Distillery
Shelter Point spirits are distilled in small batches right here on the idyllic shores of Vancouver Island. What makes our whisky and vodka so bold and distinctive? Well, for one, 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. The other unique ingredient is the pure spring water which comes from a mountain-fed aquifer located directly beneath our land.

COVID-19 Response Update: A week in numbers
What a week! Over the last four days we manufactured 7,650 litres of medical grade sanitizer which equates to 10,200 750 ml bottles! We have prioritised distribution to hospitals, health authorities, medical centres, nurses, firefighters, RCMP, residential care homes and to as many municipal and provincial services as possible. We have also supplied thousands of bottles to our local communities in Campbell River and the Comox Valley.
The need is extraordinary, and we are doing the best we can to produce as much as possible. We have ordered thousands of litres of grain neutral alcohol, containers and ingredients that will allow us to continue to manufacture sanitizer to an approved World Health Organisation formulation. We even emptied recently filled barrels of our precious whisky in order to supplement alcohol for sanitizer. Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we work as quickly as we can to replenish our stock. Thanks are also due to ABC Printing & Signs and Maestro Printing for expediting and supplying labels. We expect the next batch of sanitizer to be available toward the end of next week.
Our friends at Wayward Distillery in Courtenay are also making sanitizer and can contacted on 250-871-0424.

Here is an updated list of all the craft distilleries producing sanitizer all over BC. Support your local distillery. #buybc #buylocal Thanks to the Craft Distillers Guild of BC for putting this list together.In an effort to protect our communities and our front line medical and essential services workers during this crisis, many of BC’s True Craft Distilleries have voluntarily converted their entire operations over to turning their would-be craft whisky and gin into hand sanitizer to keep us all safe!
There is a nation wide shortage of hand sanitizer and BC’s Craft Distilleries in the Craft Distiller’s Guild of B.C. were some of the first to jump into action to help flatten the curve.
If you are inspired by their efforts and want to help them continue in this battle, please consider showing them your support by purchasing some of their tastier non virus-busting 100% Craft BC whiskies, gins and vodkas!
