43. Willibald Farm Distillery & Kitchen
1271 Reidsville Rd., Ayr,
Design: Stonecrest Engineering,
OPEN noon – 5 p.m.
Come for a guided tour of the distilling operation at this first generation farm distillery, producing progressive grain-to-glass spirits with bold flavours. Willibald opened in 2017 in a converted century barn with the rustic character of a seasoned agricultural space and the modern amenities required for distillation. Located just outside of Ayr on a beautiful 100-acre former dairy farm, which also grows rye grain, lavender, and produce, raises heritage cattle, and runs a 28 beehive apiary for honey and pollination. The excellent quality water that supplies the distilling operation is drawn on site from a deep aquifer, and helps create spirits unique to the region. A true farm-to-table restaurant was added in 2018 to make the most of the farm’s agricultural production, and to showcase sustainability in agriculture, seasonality in food, and the spirits they produce. Gather in the tasting room following the tour for optional sampling. The restaurant will also be open!
