West Coast in a bottle

We are a small distillery with big dreams and have been on a wild ride since winning the world’s biggest gin competition. With our grandest adventure yet to come, we invite you to join us on this journey.

Inspiration and Creative Innovation
Our story began when two people, inspired by the land and one another, took the first steps to realize their vision: creating and sharing finely crafted spirits that evoke a strong sense of place and embody bold culinary artistry. Starting from scratch, Jason and Alayne MacIsaac gradually built their first distillery in their garage at home in Shirley, B.C., a humble Southern Vancouver Island town whose original name was Sheringham.

The glass bottles we use today are equally inspired by local history, recollecting the prohibition-era moonshine bottles Jason stumbled upon years ago near the site of a local historical still. Embossed in every bottle is our signature sailboat, reminiscent of “Favorite,” a resident schooner that once sailed the wild Salish Sea. As Sheringham grows, we stay true to our West Coast roots and culinary storytelling, sharing with the world a piece of our paradise.

Our Seaside Gin

Inspired by the Vancouver Island coast, with its clean surf and appealing fragrance of wild roses, evergreen forests, and ocean air, our flagship spirit has a deliciously complex yet impeccably balanced botanical profile. Made from botanicals such as juniper, rose, lavender, citrus, coriander, cardamom, and—most notably—local, sustainably harvested winged kelp, which gives it a subtle taste of the ocean, Seaside Gin is an elegant choice on its own and a winning ingredient in your favorite cocktail.
