Great spot to sample some local spirits. The bourbon and vodka was great. The liquors were outstanding.

Recently went to Urban Distilleries for a tasting, very nice. We tried 5 or 6 different spirits, even the gin, of which I am generally not a fan was quite nice. The Raspberry liquor was excellent. Great stop along the way.

Went there yesterday, it was Monday of the BC long weekend, so the owner was very busy, so I could not tour the Distillery itself. I tasted the Bear Spirit Gin and it had overtones of lavender and was nice, but the John's Tomb Gin which has only been out for two weeks was awesome. Very complex flavours that appealed... More

Calling all you gin lovers out there, you have not tasted anything as good as the two gins made here. The lavender flavoured one was my favorite one by far. And, the yummy continued with the whiskey and the liqueurs. Very happy to have searched this place out in the industrial part of Kelowna.

Had visitors from out of town and have had so many winery tours I just couldn't take another one, so we decided to try this out. The tour was extremely informative. I am still amazed by the process. The owner's story is so interesting - I admire his entrepreneurial spirit! The tasting area was very busy as there was a... More

Urban Distilleries is a small, one man-show tucked away in an industrial area of Kelowna. Thanks to Siri, we had no problems finding the place. The first thing we noticed when walking through the door was the wonderful, unique smell of the place. When we arrived the owner, Mike, who does the tours, was in the middle of one so... More

So between here & Okanagan Spirits, you will get a far better tasting experience at this spot, with better customer attention. There is a tasting fee of $5, which is waived with a purchase, but for the fee you will be able to try the full selection made here (not just 3 options as offered elsewhere). The flavour infused vodkas,... More
