Taste the Quebec North-Shore

In spring 2018, we decide to start a new adventure, distillation. Proud of our region, the Mingan Archipelago, our first product, Betchwan, very well reflects the richness of this environment brimming with aromas, flavors, characters and splendours.

The distillery takes its name from the archipelago's first lighthouse keeper, Count Henry de Puyjalon, who kept the lantern lit from 1888 to 1894. Geologist by training and naturalist by passion, he died in 1905 on the Island à la Chasse opposite the old village of Betchewan located 45 kilometers east of Pointe-aux-Esquimaux (today Havre-Saint-Pierre).

Brands: Distillerie Puyjalon Betchwan Gin and Eskimo Vodka



  • Made from ingredients mostly from the Quebec North Shore and Minganie. Distilled with distinction in the first micro distillery of the region. Inspired by the sea, the land and the surrounding forest, giving it salty, floral and fruity notes, thus combining the flavours and aromas of the local terroir.

    Scottish lovage - Peppery green alder - Myrica gale

    Labrador tea – Chaga – Cloudberry - Lingonberry


  • Proudly produced from Canadian grains with pure and clear water from the Havre-Saint-Pierre region. Once named Eskimo-Point in the middle of the 19th century, cradle of the Mingan Islands, where limestone dominates and at times shows its subtle forms. Filtered to perfection and leaving a pleasant taste of grains and a freshness that reminds us of a coastal region with a seemingly polar climate.
