At Gillespie’s our mantra is LOCAL AWESOME BOOZE! We handcraft our artisan spirits and cocktail accompaniments from BC grown grains and fruit. Everything is small batch and handmade.
Gillespie’s was started by John McLellan and Kelly Woods partners in business, life and parenting. Gillespie’s is a true to form family owned and operated business.
Inspired by a passion for cocktails and desire to create a greener, more sustainable business model for a product that we have a great love and affinity for.
John and Kelly’s meeting of the minds was the spark of creation that set Gillespie’s on its journey, and what a journey it has been so far and promises to be in the future.
As life does, a twisted road brought us to beautiful Squamish, BC. We are proud to be part of a wonderful community and are inspired everyday by the beauty and ople around us.
We take our name from a dearly loved but sadly departed inspiration: our good friend, Cameron Gillespie. A huge fan and motivator in the inception of what has become his namesake. At Gillespie’s, we strive to embody all his spirit stood for in ours.
Our well-respected flagship vodka distilled from 100% BC grown wheat. Triple distilled. Not carbon filtered. Clean and fresh with great mouthfeel.
Made with the zest of 7-8 organic lemons per bottle. Slightly sweetened to balance the flavor but light in comparison to other commercial varieties.
