Experience Turner Valley!
Eau Claire Distillery is excited to partner with the Turner Valley Gas Plant this summer to offer you a one of a kind tour experience! This unique tour combination showcases the historic town of Turner Valley and the rich and interesting history between the oil boom in 1914 and prohibition in 1916.
The Discovery Well to Distillery Tour gives you a behind the scenes tour of the Turner Valley Gas Plant, Eau Claire Distillery along with a self-guided tour of the Okotoks Erratic. Time travel from 1914 and learn about Alberta’s oldest gas plant, to 2014 and beyond when Alberta’s first craft distillery opened.
With four tour times available (11am, 12:30pm, 1pm & 2pm) on Saturday, Sunday and long weekend Monday’s now until September 3rd, you will get to experience the two iconic visitor destinations in Turner Valley. Start at either the historic Turner Valley Gas Plant or Alberta’s first craft distillery, Eau Claire Distillery depending which tour time is booked. Before or after the tour we recommend stopping at the Okotoks Erratic for a self guided tour.
The guided tour of the Turner Valley Gas Plant national and Provincial Historic Site begins in the exhibit hall where you catch the significance of the site. The site tour includes a stop at Dingman Well #1 where the oil and gas story starts with the Discovery Well, then moves through the Gas Plant where you enter some of the historic buildings such as the Compressor Plan. Your tour guide will prove a detailed explanation of why and how the Turner Valley Gas Plant ignited Alberta’s petroleum industry.
At Eau Claire Distillery participate in a behind the scenes look at how spirits are made. Your tour includes a visit into our working distillery amidst our beautiful, German made copper distilling towers, a visit into our fermentation hall and a tasting of Eau Claire products, including some of which are only available at the distillery.
