“First Class Experience”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

my family and I had a very pleasant experience at Mike Urban's Distillery.We arrived by chance and he dropped what he was doing and gave us a tour of his facility.Clearly passionate about his business,we were all very impressed! His product was a delight to sample,especially the naturally flavored vodkas. Well worth a visit if visiting Kelowna.We are now sold on his premium liquors!!! John Rynard and Family

Great spot and knowledgeable on vodka. Excellent service and would visit again! Mike, the owner, was fantastic and you must try the chili vodka and bacon rimmer! Delicious!

“This place will keep you in good spirits!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

A gem tucked away in the Northern part of downtown. Visit it on the way to or from Knox Mountain - it is just off Ellis. A good facility and an interesting story of single minded entrepreneurship - with fabulous results. We walked away with bottles of the medium toast whisky and the lavender gin - both were really unique, surprisingly smooth and tasted just great. We also sampled the peri peri vodka which would be fantastic for mixing Caesars or Bloody Mary's - but didn't have enough room in our suitcase for that too! Definitely worth a visit even if you are not much of a spirits drinker - you may suddenly find yourself taking a bottle home.
