Located in the municipality of Saint-Alexandre, the distillery is in set in Québec's grain lands and has a private pure-water spring. Our PIGER HENRICUS gin is distilled in a German-made CARL still.

Today the practice of distillation is mainly controlled by a few foreign companies. This fact has inspired THE SUBVERSIVES DISTILLERS to work hard to revive this internationally renowned tradition.

«The distilled spirits industry has a long history in Canada, and has traditionally made a significant contribution to the nation's economy. The first distillery was established in 1769 in Québec City. By the 1840s, over 200 distilleries were in operation and Canada was earning a reputation as a producer of distinctive high quality whisky.»*
