Canadian-owned distillery wins tax break for Wheatfield location

Sanborn Distillery Corp., the newly created U.S. arm of a Toronto liquor distillery, gained approval Wednesday for a 15-year package of tax incentives for its new plant in Wheatfield.

The company, owned by Anat Inc., a maker of whiskey, vodka and gin, will erect a $1.1 million building in Vantage International Pointe, the industrial park controlled by the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency.

The IDA board, which earlier this year approved the sale of the last available parcel in the park to Sanborn Distillery for $41,000, approved a package of reduced property taxes and exemptions from sales tax on building materials and equipment for the distillery.

The company expects to create seven jobs at the plant.

The company anticipates $229,000 through the incentives, according to the NCIDA.

The products are expected to include kalvados, a vodka which would be made with Niagara County apples, owner Leon Safir said last month.
