The result of this unique area in Toronto is nothing short of perfection. As the Toronto Star says: “To enter The Distillery is to step back into an era of horse-drawn carts, windmills and sailing ships”.  The restoration is to marvel upon, but it is only when you experience the inside of thebuildings that you realize the magnitude of accomplishments within the district!
