LUCKY BASTARD DISTILLERS
LB’s journey began where most great ideas do…over drinks! Our founders finally had an opportunity to catch up with each other after a holiday. Maybe it was the cocktails or just the intrigue of a new adventure, but the three friends decided to take a leap and so began our vision to craft the worlds finest spirits and liqueurs using locally sourced fruit and grains.
Building the first distillery to operate in Saskatoon since prohibition presented itself with many challenges and roadblocks but we have simple and straightforward values: Create outstanding products that showcase Saskatchewan’s amazing grains and fruit, create outstanding experiences for our customers by having them become a part of our passion, create outstanding communities by supporting charities.
Our doors were first opened in May 2012 and quickly outgrowing the meager 3000 square foot distillery, in 2015 we made the move to a larger building to grow into. Along the way receiving accolades and awards around the world for our amazing products, branding and customer service.
Our founders are surrounded by a dedicated and talented team of production, sales, event, and retail staff. The idea that arose over drinks has grown from a family of 3 to a family of 30, from 5 products to more than 30, from 3,000 square feet to almost 15,000 square feet and in 2018 we opened a retail store in the Saskatoon Airport, the first of its kind in Canada.
Cheers to great memories and brilliant ideas born over drinks…you never know where they will take you!
