Turning local spuds into spirits

It all started with a trip to Prince Edward Island. Ken Beattie, a fourth-generation potato farmer, and his wife Liz stumbled across a potato distillery and decided this could be a new venture for their own farm, located in Alliston, Ontario. Today, Beattie's Farm-Crafted Potato Vodka is crafted using potatoes and spring water from Ken's farm to create a silky smooth, slightly sweet, locally produced vodka that is naturally gluten-free with a 40 per cent alcohol content. For years, Ken has played an active role within the community, donating his time and efforts to numerous organizations and due to this giving nature, 50 cents from every bottle sold is donated to the local community.  beattiesdistillers.com
