Shelter Point Artisanal Single Malt, 46%

Price: $66 Issue: Summer 2018 Reviewer: Davin de Kergommeaux

Distillery owner Patrick Evans grows much of the distillery's barley on his 380-acre farm on the shores of British Columbia's Straits of Georgia. In 2011 Evans and distiller James Marinus fired up the distillery's two Forsyths copper pot stills. The resulting single malt is creamy, malty, and slightly minty. Citrus fruits, peach pits, and stimulating white pepper slowly fade into gentle barrel notes. (Canada only) $85 CAD
