Mark Townsend is the Master Distiller.
While sitting around a fire Mark and Lisa discussed their future and retirement. Having always lived an active lifestyle it was not long before the conversation turned to making spirits and whisky. Having spent a youth in Cape Breton Mark had the base knowledge to start this couple upon their journey to opening one of Ontario's largest craft distilleries, Silver Fox Distillery. After many courses and certificates they started on the discovery of flavor profiles for Liqueurs. Knowing there Whisky would take 3 years to be available it was an easy decision to bring some of the most unique Liqueurs to there customers as well as Vodka and Gins.
The name Silver Fox Distillery came from long discussions on road trips, it was desired to have a name that reflected nature and both Mark and Lisa. ( Lisa would not allow Mark to call the distillery " Old as Shit") so thus Silver Fox Distillery was born.
One of the requirements discussed was to be as local as possible and all grains and all possible botanicals to be within a 50km radius.
