About Eau Claire Distillery
In the rugged and rural landscapes of Turner Valley’s generations-old family farms is Alberta, Canada’s first craft distillery, Eau Claire Distillery. With each sip of their award-winning craft spirits, you can taste their love of the land.
Founder David Carran already had several illustrious careers behind him when he set out to found his distillery. He was dumbfounded that Alberta’s world class agricultural bounty was being shipped all over the world for the production of spirits, but there was no one producing craft spirits locally. David set up shop in the historic 1929 Turner Valley Movie Theatre and Dance Hall, and Eau Claire Distillery was born.
Eau Claire Distillery’s location in the foothills of Turner Valley allows them to draw water from the Canadian Rockies. The natural Canadian Rocky water, coupled with the finest grains from local farmers, gives their craft spirits a savory stamp of true Albertan flavors. Those flavors are forefront in their Prickly Pear EquinOx, a sweet spirit celebrating spring’s annual earthly renewal.
