A Turner Valley landmark got a second lease on life when local-area entrepreneur, David Farran, bought the old theatre and turned it into the new home of Eau Claire Distillery. A large project with many unique challenges.
“Major electrical, complex automation and equipment, security, interior and exterior lighting were all part of the mix. Ryan and his team worked hard to make sure each component of the project was working when we needed it,” says owner David Farran.
Eau Claire Distillery is Alberta’s original craft distillery located in Turner Valley. The distillery creates handcrafted premium spirits using locally-farmed ingredients. Summer 2014 marks their first release including their signature Three Point Vodka and Parlour Gin—available at selected retail stores and restaurants. A new tasting room and distillery tours will showcase the company’s “farm to glass” ethos later this summer.
