La Cachette du Bootlegger is your specialized wine making and beer making store. Located in the West Island of Montreal, the store has been supplying wine and beer making enthusiasts in Greater Montreal and elsewhere for over 25 years.

Owners Claude and Anik Vigneault, father and daughter team, first opened shop in 1993 in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue. In 2004, they moved to a larger location in Baie-D’Urfe in order to also open a wine making centre (or BOP – Brew On Premises) called Centre Bootlegger where you can make your own wine on the premises. La Cachette du Bootlegger offers wine kits, beer kits, all-grain beer ingredients, kegging systems (or draught systems) and all equipment and ingredients needed for brewing beer and making wine. It is also where you can find their own, very popular, beer making kits called “SuperBatch” – a Bootlegger’s exclusive!

Dropped in today to get a starters kit, box of beer, and a super interesting and informative lesson on making our own beer. Customer services was top notch even though they were short staffed and the store was fairly busy. Can't wait to go back for our next batch. Great place. Fantastic and knowledgeable staff.

Very nice place. They have everything you need for beer and wine. The owners are super friendly and will do everything in their power to help you. Great selection of product, kit or otherwise. I also like the fact that you can order online, and pick up your order the next day.

Wanted to give brewing beer a go so I went into Bootleggers to see about their beer kits. The service was fantastic and the guy we spoke with was super helpful, spending about 20 minutes taking us through all of the options as far as the supplies needed and giving us the rundown on how to get started. Just went in yersterday to buy bottles to start bottling my first batch and again the same great service. I definitely recommend this place if you're looking to try and brew your own beer or wine.

Anyone who wants to brew his own beer and/or wine should visit this place. The beer kits are made so idiot proof, that you can't go wrong with it, if you just follow the simple instructions. It's been a bit over 5 years, since I started making my own beer...The guys there are very knowledgeable people and answer all questions that you might have. They simply make you feel that you can rely on them. You can start brewing at home and simply call them to ask a question, if you have any. Bootlegger supplies you with A to Z,...

Everything you need if you are a homebrewer can be purchased here. The staff know what they have and they know exactly how to help you produce the beer you want. I bought a suction siphon for $10 along with grain and hops for my next beer. Prices are reasonable. If you live in the West Island, this is the only place you need to go to for homebrewing.

Went there today after years of saying I was going to start home brewing. We walked in and were greeted quickly and was we described that were are new brewers. We then got a tour around the store and how they get their supplies along with a 30 minute demo of how to brew. They clearly know their stuff and we will be back.

Great service and great prices. The staff was really friendly and the cost of bottles and additives (oak chips, cardamom, lingonberry etc...) is cheaper than other stores in the west island. Plus there's a nifty loyalty card for an additional 2%. Good selection of wine kits as well.

Great shop to be well informed to make this beer and its house wine. They also have their famous superbatch which makes their shop unique and unavoidable.
