Collection: Newfoundland Distillery

The Newfoundland Distillery Company was founded in 2016 by William Carter and Peter Wilkins with the aim to celebrate the terroir of Newfoundland and create distinctive spirits using local ingredients. It is the first craft distillery in Newfoundland and Labrador.

William Carter, a Cordon Bleu trained chef cooked for a wide range of guests in Ottawa for over 20 years, including 3 former US Presidents. He specialized in localised Canadian cuisine and began distilling to preserve fresh local botanicals for use all year long. Peter Wilkins travelled the world investigating different cultural approaches to alcohol for British TV and is an internationally exhibited artist. 

The Newfoundland Distillery is the first craft distillery in Newfoundland which uses locally grown barley as the base spirit for many products. All of our spirits celebrate and focus on the purity of ingredients from the shores of Newfoundland. Juniper and other ingredients are all picked locally, on land or from the sea

In the summer of 2020 we expanded the distillery to meet increased demand. We produce a range of gins, rums, aquavit and vodkas, and in the fall of 2020 we laid down Newfoundland's first barrels of whisky.

Our spirits are available across Newfoundland & Labrador, as well as in Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, and Alberta. Our Gunpowder & Rose Rum and Seaweed Gin are also available in the UK.
