Did you know that the Toronto Distillery District was once home of the largest distillery in the British Empire?  Gooderham & Worts had that distinction and sports the largest collection of industrial Victorian buildings in Canada.

Imagine yourself immersed where Toronto's tallest building once stood, where the infamous Al Capone was spotted and where many Hollywood films were shot.  You'll learn about the exciting history behind the Distillery District as well as its significance to Toronto's past and present.  You will also visit Mill Street, where the area's first brewery to open in 100 years is located.

Your guide will take you for a small complimentary tasting of 1 chocolate and up to 3 beer samples at the end of your tour (legal drinking age in Ontario is 19).  History, chocolate and beer?  Heck yes, you need to take this tour!
