An Improbable Story
Some corporative descriptions will put you right to sleep — but then there is the improbable story of Distillerie du St. Laurent. Unfortunately we are not able to spill the full bib of our adventure’s real origins, since we insist on keeping a clean criminal record. We will simply say that it all began with some "tests" in a Rimouski basement, where two pigheaded friends disregarded conventions and were inspired by their own terroir to create whimsical and distinctive spirits.
From a ridiculously small distillery was born a seaweed infused gin ridiculously good and unique. Today, in addition to St. Laurent Gin, the distillery proudly produces small batches of rum and whisky made from Bas-Saint-Laurent harvested grain.
We are Proud to be amongst Quebec’s micro-distillation pioneers, Stubborn to produce spirits in a traditional way with our region’s raw resources while remaining Independent facing large corporations that are flooding the shelves with cheap generic products.
