Spread the word
We’re always flattered when someone decides to write an article about us. Which is why we’d like to thank Mike Di Caro of spotlighttoronto.com for spreading the Dillon’s love.
“Never stop experimenting.” It’s Peter Dillon’s personal philosophy and it’s at the heart of what they do at the newly opened Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers in Beamsville.
It’s also a very fitting ethos because if there’s one place in the world of alcoholic beverages where experimentation and alchemy come together it’s distillation. Naturally, the best way to get a feel for what Dillon’s is all about is to experience it through a visit to distillery.
The distillery sits just above the QEW on the north side in a building wrapped in utilitarian corrugated metal siding. The words grain, fruit and oak mark the three truck bays and give you a hint what what is held dear inside the building. Inside Dillon’s has done a wonderful job transforming what is essentially a warehouse into a warm environment you want to spend time in. Dubbed the “sipping room,” it’s filled with plenty of natural light, wood, exposed copper pipes and subtle clues of what they’re all about like: barrels, lemons, limes and juniper branches. It all works nicely with the hand-drawn look of the branding, which is reminiscent of an old apothecary. But what really stands apart about a visit is Dillon’s genuine hospitality and enthusiasm to share.
