Explore the history of the world’s largest distillery, Gooderham and Worts, and how they rose to power directly along side the rise of temperance leagues in the 1800's and early 1900's and supplied two countries during their respective prohibitions.
Delve into North America’s wild prohibition past.

Discover the colorful past as you walk through the 14 acres of cobblestone streets and 19th-century architecture of the Distillery Historic District. Your charming and knowledgeable Prohibition and Whiskey tour guide will entertain you with tales of rumrunners, gun-toting preachers and boozy veterinarians in what was truly the last wild-west era of North America.
