Black Creek Historic Brewery has met it’s match in Still Waters Distillery! Founded in 2009 by Barry Bernstein and Barry Stein, this micro-distillery in Concord, Ontario produces hard liquors like we produce beer, one handmade batch at a time! Like Black Creek, they start from scratch with raw materials including grains, corn and fruit. Once brewed and distilled, it’s into wooden casks to age. Due to the small scale of each batch, the bottles produced are numbered and released as limited editions. Their current line up of products includes Single Malt, Rye and Corn Whiskey, Vodka, Rye, Brandy and in the near future – gin!
We are thrilled to welcome Still Waters Distillery as our whiskey supplier for A Spirited Affair, our fundraiser celebrating beer, whiskey and wine on September 27th, 2013. They will be on site providing samples and talking about the unique methods they use to create their amazing beverages. Tickets for A Spirited Affair are available through our website.
In the meantime, you can purchase Still Waters products through the LCBO, online or at the brewery at 150 Bradwick Drive, Unit #26 in Concord. They also love to do tours which you can book ahead of time by contacting the brewery.
Once you’ve got your bottle home, here’s an 1860s recipe for a summery Whiskey Cobbler from The Bon-Vivants Companion.
Whiskey Cobbler. (Use large bar glass.) 2 wine-glasses of whiskey. 1 tablespoonful of sugar. 2 or 3 slices of orange. Fill tumbler with ice, and shake well. Imbibe through a straw.
