Church Spirits & Ales may be the investment opportunity of a lifetime. An opportunity clearly defined in light of the current C-19 pandemic. Distilled spirits are a growing industry, and sales have only increased in this time of uncertainty. A product that’s leading the pack, rye whisky is set for long-term growth. The guidance of world-renowned specialists. The freshest, most natural ingredients BC offers. Expertise in unique technologies that are delivering old world quality. And founders moving through milestones to bring a beautiful vision to life.
Catherine Church and Michael Rosser are living their dream. Selling out of Vancouver’s high-priced real estate market afforded them the opportunity to follow their passion into the world of craft distilleries and craft breweries. Five years ago, they left their high-paying film and television careers and settled on Vancouver Island to be closer to the super, natural ingredients needed for their next pursuit.
The right kind of mad science
Michael, who describes himself as living where science and art intersect, has been a discerning connoisseur of ales and fine spirits since his chemical engineering days in college some 25 years ago.
Raised in Boulder Colorado, the “Napa Valley” of craft breweries, Michael was introduced to the industry’s early experimentation in college, later developing his own recipes and using his college crowd to do his market research. They encouraged him to continue to work on his craft. Curiosity, tenacity, and obsession for finding perfect flavour balances honed Michael’s skills as a superb brewer.
The right kind of business head
A costume designer par excellence, Catherine earned a reputation in the film industry as someone who could identify what is needed, and deliver the goods. She is the proverbial “orchestra leader” – holding the vision and directing the expertise needed to produce outstanding quality. Always bringing her “A-game”, Catherine brings her specialized skills to her role as CEO of Church Spirits & Ales.
The Church team has detailed plans for the distillery’s location, facility and specialized technology to make it a model of efficient and sustainable operation. The development permits are in process. The architectural plans are in the works. Top industry experts have signed on to design the facility and create world-class recipes using the best of BC’s natural ingredients. The time is right to look closely at this opportunity.
