Explore Historic Collingwood.
Nestled between Georgian Bay and the Blue Mountains, Collingwood is a quaint outpost of Canadian small-town tradition on the edge of a vast territory.
Named in honour of Royal Navy Vice Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood, The Village became a town in 1858.
Not surprisingly, it has long been a prominent harbour with a once-proud shipbuilding industry and landmark grain terminals.
The contrast between wilderness and town is much like Collingwood Whisky itself – big and bold, yet nuanced, with complex subtleties.
Rich in architectural treasures from its 19th-century origins, Collingwood is a microcosm of artisanal details.
Since 1967, the town has been inspiration for and home to Canada’s longest continuously owned and operated distillery, the source of Collingwood Whisky.
