The Distillery District: Rich Toronto History

Like 69 Google +1 74 Retweet 43 Pin it 25 StumbleUpon 51 3 9

The Distillery District is a national Historic Site with an incredibly rich history. The site was once The Gooderham and Worts Distillery, and represents the largest and best preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture in North America.

In its time, The Gooderham and Worts Distillery played an important role in the growth and wealth of both the city and nation. In addition to various involvements in real estate and banking, the company at one time contributed more to Federal coffers than any other enterprise in the country.

SOMA CHOCOLATE provides exceptional and unique products in an engaging atmosphere. Having the process on display and providing "tasting notes" adds to the feeling that the chocolatemakers of SOMA are true artists and the shop should be seen as another of the Distillery's many galleries.
