Overview
More
At the forefront for our visitors is our tasting room, but more importantly, our speakeasy style cocktail bar locally known as the G spot. We have proudly been awarded "Best Cocktail in Squamish" in 2017. Our lounge serves up primarily cocktails based on our spirits as we are also a craft distillery producing spirits from canadian grown grain and fruit. We offer non-alcoholic cocktail accompaniments in the way of drinking vinegars from our Boozewitch line. Our whiskey and brandy is currently aging away in barrels.

What a gem, hidden away in Squamish! Well worth seeking out. An amazing cocktail list, exceptionally well made and not what you'd expect given the location. Don't expect a run of the mill pub, it has got character and charm. Relax and enjoy it!

Gillespie's had amazing cocktails and a great atmosphere. I have never been to a place quite like it. It was very unique, with great service and drinks. I highly recommend going to Gillespie's!
