On today’s episode, I welcome Brennan Colebank, co-founder and Master Distiller of Stillhead Distillery located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Today, we chat about how it all started, the story behind their name, their philosophy on product development and sustainability, of course their gins, and so much more.
About Stillhead Distillery
Founded by the Colebank family, Stillhead Distillery Inc. opened its doors in October of 2017. After working 15 years in the tech industry, Master Distiller Brennan Colebank left his job to pursue his dream career blending the two things he loved most: chemistry and spirits. Five years later, the Stillhead team has grown from a family of 4 to a team of 9, with each year introducing more internationally award-winning spirits.
Their flagship Wild Blackberry Gin uses handpicked, local berries from the Cowichan Valley. They continue to innovate with their exclusive and limited release special cask finished whiskies, utilizing barrels from Kentucky, Scotland, Spain, Portugal and Hungary. 2023 will see the release of their ongoing flagship “Double Oak Whisky”, as well as a maple syrup cask finished whisky, among others.
