It’s a marriage made in whisky heaven. To create this limited edition of only 1,200 bottles, we took five casks of single malt barley aged in American oak and combined them with one cask of single grain rye aged in the same wood. We then finished the mix in a French oak cask, creating an incredibly rich, fruity whisky with layer after layer of flavour. Decadent and smooth, this blend will surprise you with its spicy heat and sweet finish.
Tasting Notes: Shelter Point Cask Strength Whisky is doughy on the nose with a hint of orange cheddar, and creamy like clotted cream with a dab of strawberry jam. The gently toasted oak flavour is enhanced with dill and light sugars.
The palate is fruity with a bit of heat, although surprisingly smooth for a whisky of this strength and age. On the back end, the spices take over: candied fennel, licorice, burnt demerara sugar and oily earthy tones.
The finish is light, fresh and sweet, drying as it fades. Cask Strength Whisky

Shelter Point Farm and Distillery 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 black tailed deer and black bears. Farmed for generations, Shelter Point remains one of the last seaside farms on the Island.
