Who We Are - Local Awesome Booze!

Gillespie's Fine Spirits is a family owned and operated Artisan Craft Distillery on the Sea to Sky highway in Squamish BC just South of Whistler. We are proud of our hand crafted spirits, non-alcoholic Boozewitch Shrubs and Drinking Vinegars, seasonal and unique one time offerings, with everything being made from BC grown grains and fruit.

At Gillespie's everything is small batch and handmade with our mantra being 


Gillespie’s was started by John McLellan and Kelly Woods partners in business, life and parenting. Gillespie’s is a true to form family owned and operated business.

GIllespie's takes its name from a dearly loved departed inspiration - good friend Cameron Gillespie.  Gillespie’s strives to embody all his spirit stood for.

Inspired by a passion for cocktails they also desired to create a greener more sustainable business model for a product they love and affinity for.

As life does, a twisted road brought them to beautiful Squamish, BC's spectacular beauty, and a wonderful community that continues to inspire them everyday. 

The newly opened GSpot Tasting Lounge is open for seasonal tastings treats Wednesday - Friday nights 1-8 PM and Saturdays 1-12.
