Interested in realizing your dream of a craft distillery in the mountains of BC? Talk to us

Recommended Posts

We have spent the last 2 years working towards our dream of opening a craft distillery in Golden, BC.  Suddenly life is taking us in a new direction.  We have the perfect building ready to go and to help you realize your dreams.  We completely remodelled an existing commercial space to create a fully compliant mixed use commercial/residential space.  All the architectural and engineering is complete.

The building is approximately 6500ft2 total, including a leased space to a Cannabis retailer and a 1500ft2 bedroom/2 bath Airbnb upstairs.  Fully zoned, everything in place in the new upcoming downtown area of Golden - one of the last mountain towns without a distillery in BC.  Right across from the award-winning Whitetooth Brewery.  We are the perfect hub for adult fun and the area of significant new growth in Golden

The distillery area itself includes nearly 1500ft2 tasting room, allowable seating of nearly 100, fully finished except for the bar, 4 bathrooms (includes an accessible washroom), 225ft2 office, a 600ft2 outdoor patio, 2500ft2 distillery operating area with blending and storage areas.  Another 1100ft2 mezzanine area inside the distillery area for additional seating and private functions overlooking the future stills.  400 AMP service, floor drains, settlement tank and town-approved discharge plan.  Fire walls, pre-plumbed sprinkler system.  The perfect building in the perfect location for a distillery.  Additional space on the lot with plans for the construction of a 1500ft2 cafe to share the distillery patio and residential space above.  


We have the business plan, including the AIP, ethanol use licenses for hand sanitizer project, branding and marketing plans in place, plus the initial small equipment.  We were waiting for the change in COVID before moving ahead with the stills and boiler, but have all the details.  The entire process was planned to be a perfect multi-functional building.  Buy the building outright or lease the space for your future distillery.  We have people interested in it as a commercial space, but really want to see the space realized as a distillery.  Building is valued at $1.3M or just lease the space as a distillery

Golden is 10 hours from Vancouver and just 3 hours from Calgary and 90 minutes to Banfd. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains surrounded by 6 National Parks it is a tourism mecca for outdoor enthusiasts.  Google Golden or google map it to know more

Golden is a great mountain town and this would be a great opportunity to really go after the tourism market. My sister lives there and has been catering to that market for years with her lodge. I would definitely give this a run if I didn't already have my own place.
