Distillery District, a piece of history in the middle of the city.
Gooderham & Worts used to be the largest supplier of alcohol in Canada. The company’s growth started slowing as beer and wine became more popular and when the Ontario Temperance Act was passed in 1916 (this Act banned the sale of alcohol in Ontario). The company was later sold and continued producing alcohol for the USA during Prohibition. Ultimately, in 1990, the distillery was closed and became the Distillery District.
