Breaking the barrel

“Woody” Woods did the honour of busting open a barrel of whisky during the Cantilever Distillery’s launch celebration in Rainer on Friday afternoon. Those who attended the celebration heard speeches from the distillery’s founders and also enjoyed a glass of whisky straight from the freshly-opened keg. The distillery, set to open next summer, will feature a boutique hotel with 31 rooms, cocktail room, restaurant, yoga studio, and private event space, as well as offer tours.
