OLD PRAIRIE SENTINEL DISTILLERY Lacombe, Alberta
In every small Albertan town there once stood a grain elevator, steadfast in its purpose to provide identity and gainful services to the community. Not too many of these "prairie sentinels" remain,
but their spirit lives on...
Owner and head distiller, Rob Gugin, is deeply committed to supporting local industry. He selects only the finest locally sourced barley to craft their spirits – sewn, grown, and harvested in central Alberta, using horse-drawn equipment and traditional methods. They employ these traditional methods in appreciation of the hard-working generations of men and women who built this great province. Rob’s hand-crafted artisanal approach is reflected in the unique taste of his spirits. While his distilling methods are traditional, Rob is not afraid to innovate, bring new and exciting variations to the local spirits scene.
Old Prairie Sentinel is located just outside of Lacombe, in central Alberta, just 25 minutes north of Red Deer. The fertile lands around the Red Deer River makes it a productive area for farmers and ranchers. Rolling parklands extend to the Rocky Mountains to the west and the flatter Alberta prairie to the east.
