No. It’s 100% illegal. It is illegal to distill at home and that will not likely change in the near future. Mainly for two main reasons. Firstly, safety. Unlike beer and wine, it’s possible to make poison if you don’t know what you’re doing. Methyl alcohol poisoning kills people every year in North America. Not to mention you’ll have high proof alcohol in vapor form in a pressurized vessel (AKA a bomb), again, not very safe if you don’t know what you’re doing. Secondly, taxes. If the CRA find that you have been distilling illegally it could ruin your chances of getting approved to produce spirits legally.
The CRA investigates anyone that applies for a license to distill. If they find any public evidence that you have been operating a still illegally, kiss your chances of getting that license good bye. They keep track of purchases of home distilling equipment online.
I can proudly say that I am a distilling virgin for another month until I start apprenticing under the supervision of a Distiller with 7 years of experience.
