Local spirits: "We've been rallying for more independent ‪#‎Ontario‬ distilleries for a while and have a hunch that this might be the year that some new blood joins the ranks of Still Waters Distillery, Dillon's Small Batch Distillers, and Toronto Distillery Co. We will keep our fingers crossed that the international spotlight on Canadian craft spirits helps encourage more local distillers."

Toronto Distillery Co. are fighting for our collective constitutional rights! Specifically Section 53 of the Constitution, which protects Canadians from having to pay taxes based on the whim of an official. Right now, Ontario doesn't have a spirits tax, and instead the LCBO is imposing its markup - which is designed to cover their own overhead - on our retail store. No legislators ever voted for this tax, making it unconstitutional.

🤔 The Ontario government's "prohibition" like stance on spirits is making it hard for craft distilleries to do more than scrape by despite booming sales. "This while Ontario's wineries and craft breweries get enormous breaks," said Dillon noting distillers face a 153 per cent mark up in the L.C.B.O.'s retail outlets. Distilleries have to pay a 45.9 per cent in taxes on every bottle sold out of their own retail outlets. Wine and beer producers are taxed based on their size, while microbreweries are taxed the lowest in the province.

'Backwards and outdated' liquor laws prohibit distillers from selling drinks on site. Tim Hudak, the former leader of the Progressive Conservatives wants to change Ontario's "antiquated" liquor laws so craft distillers are treated the same as craft brewers and wineries. But Ontario's "backwards and outdated" liquor laws prohibit distillers from even selling customers a drink on site. Provincial law also forces small distillers to ship their products to the Liquor Control Board of ‪#‎Ontario‬ for distribution to bars and restaurants, but wineries and breweries can deliver directly to bars without going through the LCBO.

A new initiative has been launched to support the rapidly increasing number of craft distillers across the Province of Ontario.

Bringing together new or emerging Ontario distilleries, the Ontario Craft Distillers Association (OCDA) is hoping to emulate the success that the craft distillery industry has had over the past few years around the world, and promote the new artisinal products and processes that are being developed by its members.

The guys at Toronto Distillery Co. are up to good
things. Co-owners Charles Benoit and Jesse Razaqpur are hard at work in The Junction answering for
this city’s sever lack of independently produced, local spirits.
