Junction 56 Distillery Vodka (Stratford, Ontario) 750 ml LCBO# 449173 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 Vodka is distilled in small batches with purity being the constant focus. The use of modern distilling techniques, along with 100% Canadian wheat, result in a pure and smooth vodka. The wheat base provides a small amount of sweetness and wheat flavour.
