    The drinks at La Distillerie have a reputation for being really strong, and really big. Where else can you order booze by the liter and have it served to you in a mason jar? Read more

    Choose among a variety of colourful and delicious concoctions served in a full or half-liter mason jar. Arrive early for happy hour and obtain $3.00 off a 1-liter jar. Read more

    Great cocktail bar with huge mason-jarred drinks. Think Jargaritas meets Brooklyn meets Montreal. To top it off, go ahead and ask for a full jar of Goldfish for free.

    Happy hour special on Saturday before 7pm is the way to go: $1.50 off regular sized cocktails and $3 off large cocktails. All were delicious and want to go back to try more of the menu.

    Amy and Fred are some of best bartenders. Get here early though, space is limited and you could end up waiting outside in the cold for a long time. But if you do wait, it will be well worth it.

    The best place to take a drink. Original drinks ( vodka gin whisky ) served in jars. Very nice atmosphere. Excellent service. Kind of places that you said come back next time. Try Kremlin Pepper

    La Distillerie: Where else can you order booze by the liter and have it served to you in a mason jar? And ou get jars of goldfish crackers to snack on while you drink. This place gets packed, hurry!

    The cocktails at La Distillerie No.1 are strong, powerful and GOOD. I ordered the Mad Man (if you're into bourbon, I highly recommend it) and a shot of Fernet.

    Friendly staff and easy selection of drinks. Good place to start the night and/or to go with a date.

    Loud but very diverse list of originals and classics. Some are shaken and served in mason jars, which is gimmicky but fun. Their bourbon drinks are quite good, esp. the Old Fashioned-based "Mad Man."

    We remember large mason jars, creative not-quite-mojitos and a crisp, conservative (if a little dirty) martini for... a friend of ours. Read more

    Great drinks and great place to be Friday nights. They had snack to go with your drinks and also games to play with others.

    Best place ever. You almost always have to wait because they only let in 56 people at a time, but that's what makes the atmosphere so amazing... Crazy good drinks.

    A quaint little place to enjoy wonderful cocktails, most served in mason jars. There could be a wait outside as it is seating only.

    Giant mason jars of delicious cocktail. I see why this model is so popular. I'm not sure why I don't see it in more cities.

    If the Rum Runner is available, make sure you get it. Not only does it taste like lime mixed with bubble gum, it is also served on fire!

    If you're big on old fashions, they have quite a variety. Ask your bartender for a recommendation

    Had to wait outside for half an hour just to get in on a Monday night. Small but nice inside, however our cocktails weren't very good. Mojitos were bitter, not enough (or any?) sugar in them.
