Dillon's, Ontario, CAN

Recommended Posts

I live relatively close to the Dillon's distillery and visited the shop recently to pick up their new rose gin (delicious) and the wormwood bitters. The absinthe won't be available until the spring/summer season, they are still waiting for some of the ingredients to arrive.

Dillon's offers an interesting new make rye. It's cool to taste what 100% rye tastes like off the still (although it is watered to 40%). Can't wait to try their absinthe.

 

There might be another absinthe coming out of Quebec in the future. The guys who make this: http://www.pigerhenricus.com/en/, are planning to make an absinthe as well.

I had a bottle of the piger henricus gin in my hand last time I went to Ottawa (I always pop into the SAQ when I can) but I decided on Ungava gin instead.

 

Dillon's White Rye is decent, I can't wait to try the first batch of rye whiskey is set to come out in 2015

From the looks of it, this should be a good absinthe. Kudos to them for growing their own herbs when they couldn't source what they wanted. With the big producers finally transitioning to natural it may be harder for small batch producers not to grow their own soon.

 

Wormwood will grow like a beast too. It's easy to end up with more than you know what to do with.

Interesting. Hope it becomes available soon, since Niagara is just down the road (or river) from me...Be nice to add a regionally-produced absinthe to the collection, eh!

It's available at the LCBO right now .. I saw 12 bottles at mine and had to grab one just because .. being 67.5% I find it a nice absinthe .. pretty straight forward and very overly complex .. kindof on the citrus side with the grapefruit peel added in it
