Welcome to Almonte, the friendly town. Almonte is a small 19th century mill town situated along the scenic Canadian Mississippi river, a short drive from Ottawa. Its limestone mill buildings have been lovingly preserved and now house an eclectic mix of boutiques, craft shops and galleries. Almonte has become a foodie destination of note. Surrounding the Dairy Distillery, you’ll find award winning food and drink makers including Equator Coffee, Hummingbird Chocolate, Crooked Mile brewery and HFC donuts. Come enjoy the charm of Almonte and return home with fine food and spirits.
Dairy Distillery has built a state-of-the-art micro distillery in Almonte. A reflection of our dairy heritage and modern outlook, our distillery building is a perfect union of agricultural and contemporary design. A 30 foot pitched roof supported by gorgeous Douglas Fir timbers creates a stunning workspace for the crafting of fine spirits. Our German made copper Christian Carl stills are proudly displayed in our all glass front facade. Consistent with environmental mission, the distillery uses the latest conservation technology including radiant floors, heat exchangers and water reclamation.
