Description

Sheringham Distillery is nestled in the heart of Shirley, B.C. overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca on Southern Vancouver Island. To the East is Sheringham Pt. Lighthouse, built in 1912 to protect sailors from the treacherous waters of the Graveyard of the Pacific. To the West is French Beach Provincial Park. Sheringham Distillery is an homage to the name given to the area in 1846. In 1893, after the first post office was built, Sheringham was shortened to Shirley so the name would fit on the postage stamp.

In becoming a successful chef, Jason MacIsaac experienced the importance of strong ties with local producers in order to obtain the best quality ingredients and outcome. Applying these same principals, Sheringham Distillery sources local agricultural products from B.C. & Vancouver Island. The by-product of our spent grains is distributed to local farmers as a healthy source of high protein livestock feed.

We believe a large part of sustainability is keeping a local footprint. As our ingredients are 100% from B.C., we strive to keep all our other needs sourced from B.C. as well. The boxes our bottles arrive in are re-used for our distribution boxes. We re-use, recycle and compost all that we can.
