Situated 45 minutes southwest of downtown Calgary in the historic town of Turner Valley, Eau Claire Distillery is housed in the circa-1929 Turner Valley Movie Theatre and Dance Hall that in early days served as town hall, political rally centre, dance hall and community gathering spot.
Welcome to Eau Claire,
Canada’s Most Awarded Craft Distillery
A Gem in the Foothills
Step Into History
Located in a place of storied history, our distillery can speak to Turner Valley’s chequered and illustrious past. Today, Turner Valley is an idyllic town nestled in the most stunning foothills scenery in Alberta. Surrounded by huge ranches and farms, it has the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop and the beautiful Sheep River winding its way past the town from the mountains.
We chose Turner Valley as our home to be close to our ingredients, harvested from Alberta homestead farms. Our foothills location means drawing water from the Canadian Rockies to influence flavours. Its location on the “cowboy trail”- a highway route full of Albertan historical and visitor attractions – led us to an ideal and idyllic place for a distillery.
Our venues offer a trip back in time to the 1920's, when Prohibition was in full swing in Turner Valley. Book our 1920's-themed Speakeasy for your special event, or join us every Saturday and Sunday for our Prohibition Experience. Step back in time and be transported to the days of Prohibition, and learn about Turner Valley's role in illicit rum-running operations in the 1920's.
