Our process

We’re past the hobby stage. For us, craft spirits are journeys and discoveries that we want to share with the world.  Learn more about how and why we do what we do.

Craft spirits of the world now in Ontario.

How does this all work?

At the risk of putting too fine a point on it, your Specialty Spirits Memberships work simply and easily. You and the new spirits you want to discover and try shouldn’t be watered down and diluted by a big chunk of bureaucracy. That’s Specialty Spirits distilled: people who enjoy and explore spirits who want to share with like-minded people – just like you.


Free Membership (LCBO Recommendations)

Consider this the ground floor. Actually, it’s more like a first date. We just met and we’re hitting it off but you want to see where this takes you before you’re ready to commit.  We get it. This membership allows you to explore what we’re all about as well as peruse what’s in stock through our monthly newsletter. You also get access to our “quarterly selections”, a nod to our past as Whisky Quarterly Ontario. This is the ideal way to get acquainted with Specialty Spirits.  No pressure. Take it at your own pace.  Of course, if you’re ready to take this to the next level, read on.

Standard Membership

The reason we exist and work as tirelessly as we do is the Membership itself.  We want to reach above the “usual” store shelf experience.

Not only do you get the same benefits as the free membership, you’ll be enjoying your newly found spirits in a Specialty Spirits Glencairn glass etched with your membership number on it. You’ll also receive discounts to our upcoming online or in-person tasting events.

Cost to you – just $100 a year. We don’t make anything complicated. 

And, as for pricing, our policy is figuratively shrink-wrapped in clear plastic – it’s fully transparent.

  • This isn’t a car.  We don’t jack up prices on the spirits. When we want a bottle for ourselves, we pay the same price as you do.
  • We also display the estimated price per bottle on our site. These estimates are determined via the tools from the LCBO itself.

The prices are set, by law, and to our best estimate as if you were buying it at the LCBO. We are not a reseller and we are not doing this for cash in a parking lot. Everything we do meets every legal requirement for operating Specialty Spirits here in Ontario.
