The Spirit of Christmas, aka… The Spirit of York
The Toronto Christmas Market is one of Toronto’s favourite holiday traditions and a throwback to a simpler time. One where carolers were the norm, not the exception. The Market takes you back, allowing you to relive Christmas just the way you envisioned it as a child. An idyllic “Christmas town”… it’s a magical place that attracts people for the day, a weekend, even filling them with a magical feeling that lasts a lifetime.
But at the 2017 Toronto Christmas Market, as thousands descend to rediscover the magic and romance of Christmas, they will find that The Spirit Of Christmas has a new address… the Spirit of York, 12 Trinity Street. That’s right, the Spirit of York is the only distillery in Toronto’s historic 180-year old Distillery District. New to the neighbourhood, Spirit of York marries time-honoured distillation techniques with state-of-the-art equipment to produce some of the finest, most premium spirits you will ever taste. And just in time for Christmas.
Spirit of York – part art, part science and all they want for Christmas
The Spirit of York exquisitely captures the spirit of Christmas. With all the charm and character one would expect, it warms the soul. As Gerry Guitor, co-owner of Spirit of York, so elegantly puts it, “Christmas isn’t a date on the calendar it’s a feeling. A time when the stresses of the year magically melt away and we’re left with nothing but feelings of joy.”
But how does one answer the age-old question, what do you get the person who has everything? The one thing they’ve yet to discover they even wanted, of course. As Edward Lees, Creative Director of Audacity Advertising & Design; the agency that created “The Spirit of Christmas” campaign say’s, “The best gifts don’t satisfy a need. They simultaneously create and satisfy a want.” One thing is for sure, Spirit of York has gone to great lengths to ensure the stress that typically accompanies searching for that perfect gift, is non-existent.
