BLUE GROUSE DISTILLERY
DUNCAN, VANCOUVER ISLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA
After recently completing a new state of the art winery, Blue Grouse is expanding again. Nestled in the vineyard adjacent to the recently completed winery, a new distillery was designed through adaptive reuse of two existing barns. This approach preserves the character of the valley and saves building material. The smaller of the two buildings is tucked into the other, creating a new production, storage, and tasting facility. The distillery will produce grappa and vodkas from winery byproducts. The tasting space opens into a courtyard for guests to enjoy the spirits and valley view.
