Great place for Xmas shopping! Could use more sampler size bottles of hard liquor. Nice pre-wrapped combos. Like that there was swag and local salsa too. Seemed a bit short staffed. LOVE that local productS r the main ingredients at this distillery.

The prohibition era theme is really well done and the staff is always welcoming. This is now our favorite place to take visitors for a taste of the Okanagan. They are all impressed that our community has this facility producing such high quality liquor products.

Such a great place to learn about gin making with Apple culls. Also pick up select limited bottles of bourbon. We love Okanagan Spirits Gin and have been buying it for friends as gifts. The limited bourbon is a treat, cool bottling. My son will enjoy adding the limited edition to his home bar. Go for a tour to learn... More

This is a small distillery that has fairly recently moved to a new spacious location in Vernon. The new building is well appointed and has a great tasting bar. I find some of the liquors not of a flavour that I enjoy, but others are very good. This is apparently because of a base that they use. The staff are... More

This was my second visit. It's an interesting place. They have a video room showing a short film about the distillery. The still itself is on view, and a magnificent piece of shiny equipment it is! Take a selfie in front of their lovely old 'gangster' style car. Access is not problematical. The washroom facilities are good. There is even... More

Last Christmas our nephew gave us a bottle of Laird of Fintry I could hardly believe such an exceptional whisky could be made in the new world. This year we've journeyed to the source and found very reasonably priced gifts of the consumable variety. No one needs more junk. A thoughtful tasting is the perfect homework needed before "Christmas shopping... More

the distillery is very spacious, clean and beautifully laid out. They have a wide range of delicious spirit made with Okanagan fruits. They also make some unique spirits (like rhubarb liquer) that you wont find anywhere else. They also have the capacity to host client events. Very nice place.

We had friends over last summer and we had never been to the new distillery. We were greeted by a very knowledgeable gal (sorry forgot the name). She was pleasant, knowledgeable and very friendly. Our friends really enjoyed the tasting and the history of the distillery. Of course we all left with some goodies in hand and as locals we... More
