Distillerie des Marigots
Sitting atop a cliff, the artisanal Distillerie des Marigots has a stunning view over Chaleur Bay in Caplan on the Gaspé pensinsula. Entrepreneurial couple Joseph and Laurie-Anne had always dreamed of building a production facility for their delicious gin and whisky in this beautiful spot.
The distillery boasts distinctive, Scandinavian-inspired architecture. The Art Massif timber structure and its natural look is in harmony with the refined regional spirits produced there. The glued-laminated wood beams and columns form an open area with cathedral ceiling, allowing light to enter through the large windows at each end.
