Calgary’s Craft Distillery
We’re proud to bring our heritage of craft distilling to Alberta, showcasing local ingredients in every product we offer.
The Burwood Story
Take everything that makes Alberta unique. A history rich with farming, hard work and growth, then combine it with our love for traditional distillation techniques and an old-world attention to detail. Backdrop it with our pristine prairies, offering some of the finest ingredients in the world, and you have a recipe for some of the best spirits around.
The distillery got its start as an idea among friends, growing into something incredible along the way. Burwood Distillery is a celebration of Alberta’s agriculture and a nod to the generations of distillers that came before us. We love every single product we produce, and our intention is to get you just as excited about craft spirits as we are.
Built With Our Own Hands
The distillery and lounge itself is of our own creation. From the dirt floor up, Burwood Distillery is hand built and truly unique — a testament to our passion and desire to bring something different to Calgary. Everything you see inside serves a purpose, creating a certain charm. We intentionally styled our interior after old-world Eastern European and Scottish farm distilleries.
Our community is part of who we are. For us, local is a way of life. The barley, the honey — it’s all local. We like to know where our ingredients come from, and we know you’ll be excited to discover the story in each and every one of our spirits. We hand-crush every grain, scoop every ounce of honey, distill every drop and bottle it all right here in Calgary.
Our goal is to minimize the risk to employees and guests and help lower the probability of the spread of the virus to our employees, their families, and the communities where we operate in, therefore we are not currently booking times to tour the public through the distillery at this time.
Keep checking back as we look forward to the day we can have you back touring through our home.
The Cocktail Lounge
Ready to sit back, relax and discover your own moments worth drinking to? Then join us in our cocktail lounge. We offer a full dining experience with farm to table style dishes that highlight local ingredients whenever possible. Dive into a fresh salad, share a board, or enjoy one of our sandwiches.
Like our spirits and beverages, our menu is both inspired by what’s available locally and our heritage. Chef Tyler Forsyth brings exceptional originality and flavour combinations to the Burwood experience, making for a selection of dishes you’ll keep thinking about long after your last bite.
Our focus on supporting local producers is reflected in our menu, using fresh, local and sustainable ingredients whenever possible.
