Rheault Distillery
Rheault Distillery is a small, artisan distillery located in Hearst, Northern Ontario, which prides itself for creating hand crafted, small batch spirits for connoisseurs. Each product is created individually, from grain to glass, to meet the highest standards set in Ontario and to attract a palate that is both mature and unadulterated.

We understand that the most important feature of anything is what’s inside and that’s why we use homegrown grain and give each batch the personal Rheault-touch it commands.  And while you’ll notice we spared nothing when it comes to taste, we also package all of our products in glass bottles to preserve the flavor and to ensure your batch is given the respect it deserves. |Website | Facebook

Rock Museum in Val-Côté
Located at 128 Brisson Street in Val-Côté, Dollard Brisson worked over 20 years to implement this project. Today, his daughter Thérèse and his son-in-law Romeo Talbot continue his dream.

Initially, only the walls of the basement of the main residence were covered with stones from the region, Canada, the United States and even South America. Stones worked by Dollard Brisson were polished, cut and placed in a mold to produce tiles. These tiles or blocks of stone were assembled to cover the walls. The effect created by the shape and color of the stones is remarkable.

Today, the collection of stones from l’Avenue des pins grew. Rocks show cases were installed. According to the technique established by Dollard Brisson, beautiful stone walkways ornate the poperty. The collection now includes stones from around the world. This museum, considered a jewel by many geologists who have visited the region, is not funded by the province.
