Craft distilling is a rich Steinhart family tradition over 300 years in the making. Thomas Steinhart still remembers coming of age in rural Germany, where he spent many happy hours helping his grandfather stoke the woodfired still. Though the fire has long since extinguished and the family farm has been sold, the joy of using natural ingredients to craft superb spirits is still ablaze in Thomas’ memory.
Thomas Steinhart is a bold personality, with a flair for rebellion and living life on his own terms. Now, after travelling the world for work, Thomas is ready to settle down on his farm in Antigonish, NS, and revive his family’s heritage by launching Steinhart Distillery.
Already renowned for its maple vodka, Steinhart Distillery is making new waves with the release of several other high-quality spirits, including organic vodka, haskap vodka and gin. Following many high-profile awards in 2017, Steinhart was most recently shortlisted for the 2018 Icon of Gin Awards. In late 2017, The Fifty Best hosted a wines and spirits tasting, and Steinhart won a medal for every product submitted, including a gold medal for “Best Gin” and a double gold medal for the maple vodka and organic vodka. The Steinhart habanero vodka and haskap vodka also won gold and silver, respectively, for “Best Flavoured Vodka” in the competition.
