Whisky made in
Bear Country

Our home is on the edge of the inspiring Canadian wilderness.

This is the gateway to Bear Country with miles of unexplored forests, mountains, lakes and rivers on our doorstep.

In the Canadian North, living in harmony with nature is part of our way of life. We work with the wilderness and the powerful natural elements to transform our whisky, and our world, into something more wild and adventurous.

Up here boundaries don’t apply. We challenge out-of-date rules and traditions, exposing ourselves to new elements, new ideas and new experiences.

The unique Canadian rules about whisky making, mean there is no better place on earth to innovate, experiment and create the unexpected.

The freedom
to innovate

Proudly Canadian

Our bold ambition.

Our ambition is simple. We plan to make BEARFACE an iconic world whisky, an aspirational symbol of the wild Canadian North. Our brand is proudly Canadian, but we go beyond borders, we even go beyond the world of whisky, to find people with unique skills, endless energy and bold ideas we are looking for.

Our unstoppable
master blender

Andres Faustinelli

We are a collective tribe of like-minded people who inspire each other and share a passion for adventurous whisky. Our group of collaborators includes seekers, makers, coopers, blenders, mixologists and even oak scientists, but it’s our inspirational master blender Andres who leads the team.

Elementally Aged
by the Canadian wilderness for a
bolder, smoother flavour

Whisky transformed by the North

Elemental Ageing is our unique process where we mature our whisky in barrels stored in repurposed shipping containers and expose them to the extreme elements of the wild North. This transforms the liquid inside each cask, giving BEARFACE Whisky its unique colour, aroma and taste.

From freezing -10°C cold to searing 40°C heat, the temperatures can fluctuate wildly in a single day under steel.

Whisky transformed by the wild

Using different types of oak casks and harnessing the rhythm of the seasons, our whisky is transformed by its time in the wild. When nature has done its work, our Master Blender selects the best barrels and blends them to create each unique batch of BEARFACE.

Elemental Ageing is a core philosophy that drives us in everything we do. We are constantly seeking new and better ways to work with the power of the natural elements to untame our whisky, create amazing new flavours and rewild our world.
