Owners of SRCVinyl, prominent independent vinyl record retailer, to open world’s first “Craft Distillery Record Shop”
SRCVinyl founders Jenna Miles and Danny Keyes have launched a small batch distillery – Limited Distilling, which will share its tasting room with SRCVinyl creating a unique indie record shop and craft spirits experience in the heart of Niagara, Canada’s wine region.
Grand opening celebrations will commence October 18th – 20th with free tours & tastings, meet and greet with the distillery owners, a limited whisky release and a complimentary grand opening gift.
Free tours can be booked HERE: http://www.distillery.ltd.
Spirits available at the grand opening will include a Rye and Corn “Sour Mash” Moonshine, Jalapeno Moonshine, Mint Elixir and a single cask Pumpkin Spiced Rum. Additionally, Limited Distilling will be releasing a very small batch of aged, single malt whisky, exclusively for the Grand Opening.
Located at 14 Henegan Road, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Limited Distillery is centrally located within Niagara’s famous brewery, winery and distillery trail. The 9,000 square foot industrial space will provide spirit and vinyl record enthusiasts the ability to tour and experience a true craft distillery, sample and purchase seasonal, small-batch spirits while shopping for vinyl records.
Limited Distilling was built as a place to explore, create and experiment with recipe ideas and curiosities. The distillery is furnished with a variety of equipment that will run it as a full-on 'spirit' laboratory. Many spirit companies focus on producing a few or even a single type of alcohol that is often ‘neutral’ tasting. Limited Distilling will place emphasis on exploring a variety of products while embracing the uniqueness and characteristics of each batch. Spirit runs will often be small allowing the opportunity to explore the use of different ingredients and spirit productions methods, both local and from around the world.

Official Charts data for 2016 shows that LP's are on track to smash through the three million unit mark for the first time in more than 20 years.
Gennaro Castaldo, Director of Communications at BPI, said:
“Sales of vinyl have risen dramatically since their low point in 2007, with over 2 million LPs purchased last year for the first time in more than two decades. With no let-up in sight, the BPI has every expectation this trend will continue, and estimates that up to 3.5 million LPs or more could be purchased during the course of 2016”. The major investment we are seeing in vinyl from HMV and other retailers alongside the commitment of labels and the artists themselves, can only add further impetus to this remarkable growth.”
Ian Topping, Chief Executive of HMV said:
“As the UK's largest vinyl retailer, HMV has expanded its offer considerably in 2016 due to the ever-growing demand from our customers. The strong resurgence of vinyl is set to continue as the highlight of the UK entertainment industry - expect vinyl to be top of the Father's Day gift list this year”
Adam Teskey, Manufacturing Director of The Vinyl Factory commented:
"The demand for vinyl has been booming over the past few years and show no sign of slowing down. Our pressing plant is running 50% more records now than in 2014 and our projected forecasts allow for this very positive trend to continue.”
