Colin and Meredith began their journey on starting Saskatchewan’s first micro distillery in August of 2010. After searching for a unique Saskatchewan spirit and finding none, creating a micro distillery in Saskatchewan seemed like an obvious business choice for the heart of the prairies. Colin Schmidt was raised in Regina, SK. He attended Colorado College on a hockey scholarship and was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers. After a short hockey career, Colin met Meredith while living in the US and they decided to return to Saskatchewan in 2008.
Although Colin and Meredith’s professional backgrounds were in banking and finance, they had been hobby craftsmen since they returning to Saskatchewan. After receiving encouragement and advice from one of Colin’s friends who had successfully opened one of the first micro distilleries in the United States, they were inspired to start Saskatchewan’s first micro distillery out of their home garage. After only a year and a half in business, Last Mountain Distillery expanded and opened up at its current location on Highway 20 in Lumsden, SK.
