Georgian Bay Spirit Co.

Collingwood retail location and tasting room opening early 2021. Friends and business partners, Denzil Wadds and Tim Keenleyside wanted to turn their passion for spirits and their love of Georgian Bay into a full-time venture. It took 48 recipes and over a year to develop, but Georgian Bay Gin® was the first step on a long and exciting journey of growth. In 2016, Tim and Denny were joined by Mark Cohon, who has a passion for building great Canadian brands. Together, these three friends and business partners are on a mission to share their love of The Bay and great cocktails with the world. Shortly after its launch, Georgian Bay Vodka was named Best Vodka at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Freshwater Distillery

Tasting room opening in spring of 2021.
Seeing the beauty of Georgian Bay and wanting to start a business that could help grow locally while using the strengths of the area, Craig Wagner was inspired to start a spirits company that would give back to the community. Shelley Johnston was consulted to take on the challenge of starting a premium distillery with Craig. Taking her passion for high quality cocktails and being given the opportunity to share with a broader base was an offer she couldn’t possibly refuse.
