Eau Claire Distillery is a farm-to-glass distillery, sourcing their grains from local Alberta farmers. The distillery is located 45 minutes southwest of Calgary in the historical town of Turney Valley. It is housed in the Turner Valley Movie Theatre and Dance Hall which was built around 1929.

Since the foundation of the distillery, the company has farmed around 20 acres of barley using traditional methods, draft horses, and antique farming equipment. The owners believe this not only keeps them close to their farm-to-glass heritage but also preserves old farming methods.

If you are visiting the area, the distillery is certainly worth a visit.
