A journey you’ll never forget

Located in Gatineau, Quebec, the distillery sets itself apart with its non conventional and audacious spirit.

The Artist in Residence Distillerie beginnings

The idea of the distillery emerged in 2016, at a time when Pierre Mantha was thirsty for a new challenge. Entrepreneur and free thinker, he discovers a new passion that allows him to surpass himself and to evolve in a completely new industry. It’s the beginning of a big adventure.
