HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Gillespie’s was started by John McLellan and Kelly Woods partners in business, life and parenting. Gillespie’s is a true to form family owned and operated business. Gillespie’s takes its name from a dearly loved departed inspiration – good friend Cameron Gillespie. Gillespie’s strives to embody all his spirit stood for.

Inspired by a passion for cocktails they also desired to create a greener more sustainable business model for a product they love and affinity for. As life does, a twisted road brought them to beautiful Squamish, BC’s spectacular beauty, and a wonderful community that continues to inspire them everyday. As an official BC Craft Distillery, all of our products are made with the base of 100% BC grown grains and fruit. We make everything by hand in old fashioned methods and take great care to provide our clients with an exceptional product. All of our offerings see attention to detail in their manufacturing. From our handmade equipment by the distiller himself re-purposed from other industries, to hand rasped lemons to hand labelled bottles, everything is offered to our customers with focus and love.
