Experience the explosive history of the world’s once largest Distillery – and find out how the Gooderham and Worts Distillery transformed into the modern day Distillery District.

Toronto’s history is far more fascinating than many give credit.  Our expert guides will interpret this rich history through the lens of Gooderham and Worts – and how they became the world’s largest distillery.

Just what is Toronto’s Prohibition history? We answer this question on our Prohibition and Spirits Tour.

While the American Prohibition era was dominated by names like Al Capone and the Real McCoy – they had to get their booze from somewhere. Enter the Gooderham and Worts Distillery.

Our Toronto Whisky and Spirits History tour fills in the gaps of how Gooderham and Worts rose to become the world’s largest distillery while Temperance Leagues were running rampant.

Discover how the Gooderham and Worts Distillery supplied millions of gallons of booze to both countries even it was technically illegal to drink.

Our expert Toronto Tour Guide will also tell you about the legal loopholes that allowed Canada’s alcohol industry to flourish – and regular folks to whet their whistles after a long day of work.

Your tour concludes with a beginner level spirits tasting for everyone to enjoy!
