Local Distilleries & Cideries Windsor-Essex-Pelee Island


Written by The Editors

Inspired by the history of rumrunning in the local area, owners Tom and Sue Manherz and Larry Girard turned that interest into a premium craft distillery.A craftsman operation, Wolfhead Distillery produces unique flavours of Whisky, Vodka and Gin that push the boundaries of Canadian Spirits.

The Scene

Wolfhead Distillery is a hidden gem in Essex County. Surrounded by barrels, you’ll be invited into a cozy industrial restaurant, featuring a wildly delicious roadhouse menu with locally sourced ingredients and infused spirits. Recommendations include the Garlic Fried Linguini — fresh mushrooms, green olives, banana peppers, garlic, Vodka, parmesan, feta and green olives (gluten free available). Or try the Maple Bacon Burger — an 8 oz handmade burger topped with cheddar & bacon and finished with Giffin’s Whisky Barrel Aged Maple Syrup and Wolfhead Whisky BBQ Sauce. 

Good Things Come In Small Batches

Wolfhead Distillery features small batch, double barrel Premium Craft Whisky, VodkaRiver’s End Gin and Kavi. Popular flavoured spirits include Coffee Whisky Liqueur, Grapefruit Vodka and Banana Caramel Vodka. A must try is the Wolfhead Whisky Caesar. Wolfhead Premium Spirits can be found in select LCBO stores in Ontario or at the Distillery.
