Neighbourhood Guide: Toronto’s Distillery District

One of Toronto’s most well known neighbourhoods is the Distillery District, a historic area located east of the city’s downtown. This neighbourhood, now known as the Distillery District, was once a distillery facility owned by Canada’s largest distiller, Gooderham and Worts.
