Junction 56 Distillery Gin (Stratford, Ontario) 750 ml LCBO# 449181 Find Store or Order Online
Junction 56 is a craft distillery located in Stratford, Ontario, focused on creating a range of high quality products using locally grown ingredients. Owner Mike Heisz, an engineer from Stratford, opened the distillery in 2015 where, just four years earlier, he had attended a whisky tasting and his dream of opening a distillery began to take shape.
Corn and wheat are milled and distilled onsite to create unique spirits ranging in different flavour profiles that can be enjoyed in traditional or innovative cocktails. Currently, vodka, gin and moonshine (un-aged whiskey) are produced with plans of adding other products in the future.
Local heritage and history tie into the Junction 56 Distillery name: Junction was selected because of the building’s location next to the train tracks in Stratford, and 56 comes from the year (1856) when the railways first arrived in the city.
Junction 56 pure handcrafted, 100% wheat based vodka is mixed with botanicals to create Junction 56 Gin. It is a crisp and complex gin with clean and refreshing juniper flavours along with a fresh, citrus finish.
