BC SPIRITS IN THE NEWS
Montis Distilling will be Whistler's first local spirit producer
MAR 8th, 2019
For Kwang Chen, distillation has evolved from a personal hobby to a career passion.
"It's something I've always enjoyed doing and has always been a part of my life," says Chen. "Cooking and making consumables for people has always been interesting for me."
Chen has parlayed his pastime into Montis Distilling, which is set to open in the coming weeks at the former location of Altitude Computers in Function Junction. Largely self-taught, Chen is teaming up with his wife, Bryanna, to launch the very first distillery based in Whistler.
