The Stone Distillery is the oldest remaining building on site of the Toronto distillery district. It was constructed between 1859-1860. By 1877 The Gooderham and Worts Distillery had become the largest distillery in the world and is now the largest and best preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture in North America. After 153 years of continuous production, the Gooderham & Worts Distillery finally ceased operation during the '90s, The Distillery found a second life as the number one film location in Canada, and the second largest film location outside of Hollywood. Over the years, more than 1700 films have used the site.
