Easy to find. A large variety of liquors and a bar to produce some amazing drinks. The flights are pretty cheap and tasted wow!

Tofino Distillery is a favorite stop of ours! We love their drinks, especially the Whiskey, Absinthe & Jalapeno Vodka. Kat makes some DELICIOUS cocktails & it's a lot of fun to go there! We went 4 times during our trip because there's so much to try. (& we ordered some for delivery, can't wait!)

It was a cold evening this January with the daily temperatures dipping above & below zero when I entered the wonderful Black Rock Oceanfront Resort's Big Beach Bar & Lounge for a bite & something interesting to sip.
As I stepped in this popular Ucluelet eatery, I was hailed by a friend who was sitting at the bar with someone he had just met, with both calling me over & asking me to join them, which I happily did,
The person who was chatting with my friend asked me as I sat down if I liked cinnamon & when I nodded he ordered us three Tofino Distillery’s handcrafted organic Beach Fire Liquor shooters.
What a delight.
It more than hit the spot with its complexity of flavors & its breath warming aromas.
It was perfect. Smooth but robust enough to live up to its name of Beach Fire.
It is bourbon based so it had both the structure & sweetness needed for such a cold night.
I was happy to have been treated and introduced to this new drink made in the nearby ocean village of
Tofino, just 26 miles north of its non identical ocean village twin of Ucluelet.
Tofino Distillery, which is open from 12 to 7 pm & also offers cocktails in its tasting room. Its products are served in many a bar & restaurant which offers a number of the organic spirits it makes.
Next time out I will try other of its craft spirits.
Maybe it’s jalapeño gin?
Or its absinthe?
There is a good few options which the Tofino Distillery
produces.
I plan to try the entire range which all appear to be as equally delicious as its Beach Fire, which is crated to be drank around a fire but also perfect in a hip flask when skiing & certainly when chatting at a bar on a cool evening.

Tasty unusual flavours- definitely worth a visit and try out some cool drinks.

Nice rustic spot, with good atmosphere.

Flights of 3 tasters available which was perfect for our visit. We also purchased a big bottle of one of our tasters.

Would recommend a visit- they have outdoor seating I assume opens in the Summer when the weather is a bit better.

This distillery uses only organic ingredients and has so many items to try. We decided on the Mini Cocktail Flight. We each chose 3 different cocktails. This was so fun! The staff was very friendly and this is a nice casual spot. My favorite cocktail was the Lion's Mane

It was a rainy day and we decided to go and purchase a bottle of the lavender and mint gin featured in our hotel room and available at the Tofino Distillery. When we arrived, much to our surprise, we were able to get a flight of cocktails to sample many of the other liquors, etc. that they distill. The service was wonderful, the cocktails were interesting and it turned into an afternoon we won't forget soon!

This was a fun find for us. We were actually looking for the brewery which was closed so we went to the Distillery instead and were so glad we did. We had both a flight of shots and a flight of cocktails and enjoyed trying new spirit flavours. We ended up buying the Cedar Gin and the Espresso Vodka. The atmosphere was good, the server was friendly and the nautical decor is interesting and perfect for the space.

I was extremely disappointed with the rude staff. I went fully intending to purchase some jalapeño vodka but after being served the 3 tasting cocktails I was completely turned off. I left without even finishing my drinks. I would not go back.

Hi there! We truly appreciate you providing a review of the establishment, however we do continue to support our staff when they are enforcing any provincially mandated rules, both for the Covid-19 pandemic and any of the other regulations in place for that matter. We did try to contact you to discuss your visit and pinpoint the events that led to this experience, however without any response, we can assume our staff did the right thing in enforcing policies that keep everyone safe, and our doors open. We sincerely hope that you enjoyed the rest of your visit to Tofino, and trust that the other establishments you visited also followed any and all of these same regulations that are set out by the government during this very confusing and difficult time for the hospitality industry in BC and across Canada. Additionally, if you'd still like to try the Jalapeño Vodka at any point, it is available at a number of private liquor stores throughout BC, which you can find listed on our website. Thanks
