The Distillery District is comprised of over 40 heritage buildings and is the largest collection of Victorian-era industrial architecture in North America.
The Gooderham and Worts Distillery was the largest distillery in the world by the 1860s and used to sit on the waterfront before the water edge was extended by a kilometer south.
Distillery operations slowed during the de-industrialization period and slowly became more and more derelict. After it’s revitalization, the Distillery District has become well known for its galleries, restaurants, coffee houses, shops and microbreweries.
