OU R STORY If you’ve come to visit - well, you know we make spirits – in fact, some of the best spirits in the world.

If you are sitting down for a cocktail, we want you to know that our mixologists have created some of the most fun and most unique cocktails anywhere – all with our own handcrafted product. Creativity on tap. If you are thinking about a bite to eat, we wanted you to taste the best of local growers and producers – all to show you what us Albertan’s can do. We’re very proud of our beverage and culinary fare, but nothing happens without Alberta farmers. They are the heroes of this story. We’re not a restaurant; nor are we a bar. We’re a distillery with a tasting room, so I hope you will taste away with impunity. Little bites. Big taste. Welcome to Eau Claire Distillery – an artisanal home for wayward spirits – our secret to share with you!

Yours truly, David Farran A free spirit, ploughman and bottlewasher

NOTES FOR THE UNINITIATED • Wherever possible we use gluten friendly or dairy free options. Because we use farm barley on site, we can’t guarantee it’s absolutely gluten free, but we try (because selfishly, a bunch of us are dietary nerds!) • SUSTAINABILITY & SERVING WARE What’s with the paper plates? Eau Claire is committed to sustainability and the environment. We have chosen to serve with compostable plates and cutlery wherever possible – made from sugar cane and corn – it decomposes 3 weeks after use. • GF – Gluten Friendly • DF – Dairy Free • Spent Grain (Spéntus Grano) /Spent/ /Grān/ After the barley grain is mashed and the distillery has extracted the flavours and sugar for fermentation the remaining grain is used for high protein animal feed or, we make delicious crackers!
