-FROM DREAMS TO FRUITION-

LMD’S TEAM

THEY MAKE EVERYTHING POSSIBLe


 

We pride ourselves on having an incredible group of people working at Last Mountain Distillery. Every member of our team plays an important role in providing YOU with the best products and experiences. While making every customer experience with us a great one is our top priority, we make sure we have plenty of fun here as well. After all, if your job is to make booze shouldn’t every day be a great day? If you stop by on a Friday and find the bottling line empty and the whole staff is in the tasting room that’s normal, we call it cocktail hour!

We encourage you to come out to Lumsden and meet this incredible group. Whether it be on a tour getting to know them a little more intimately or just popping in to buy a bottle of your favourite beverage, we hope this group helps to make every experience with us an excellent one!
