Went there for a tasting, with a voucher a friend bought from an auction. There were 6 of us in total and we all had an amazing time! They even accommodated the pairings with vegan options for me. So friendly and professional. The view was beautiful too. And ooooh that maple liqueur! 😍👌Will definitely be back!

We had a good experience but there was pressure to donate to a not for profit organization for the samples. In addition, the staff were much more aggressive in selling the product than I normally encounter. The spirits did seem to be of high quality though. Just a little aggressive in the money collection area.

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor! I’m happy that you enjoyed the experience at our tasting room and that you liked our spirits. I’m sorry that you felt that I pressured you to donate to a local non-profit organization. I feel passionate not only about our products, but also about our area as a tourist destination year round. You indicated that you liked the outdoors, and our fundraiser in August was for a nature festival in May of every year that attracts lots of outdoor and adventure enthusiasts to the South Okanagan. We have posters displayed that we don’t charge a tasting fee in our distillery (as is usual in the wine industry), but ask for a free will donation to support a local non-profit organization. We don’t remind guests if they only try 1 or 2 samples and then find that this is not for them. We only ask for a donation if a guest tried 3 or 4 samples and enjoyed our hospitality but decided not to make a purchase. I hope you can come back and enjoy the experience.

What a wonderful ending to our wine tour. Annette was an absolute delight and obviously passionate about the amazing spirits and liqueurs that the company has produced. It was lovely to hear the the stories about how the grape and fruit spirits came about and after sampling several it is clear to see why they have won such prestigious award. I would urge anyone to stop by for a tasting - you won't be disappointed.

On our recent visit we entered a tasting room full of very beautiful and happy women. When they completed their purchases we had the chance to taste some product and have an excellent chat with the very personable Jorg. Attention to detail is a must for a distiller and Jorg is a master. We were disappointed only by the fact that the grappas were sold out, but that only means we are sure to return when we next visit the area. Maple Leaf Spirits is a wonderful addition to one of our favourite vacation spots in the world!

I studied wine making and distillation (along with a lot of chemistry) in college. I take this stuff very seriously. I have tasted some of 'the best' fruit based distilled products in the world. It is with these qualifications that I say what Jorg is doing at Maple Leaf has just raised the bar for the whole world. Those medals he has won at competitions are very well deserved. This place should be on everyone's list of where to visit in the Okanagen Valley. Well done, Maple Leaf!

We had a great time tasting and chatting with Jorg and Annette who emigrated to Canada from German around a decade or so ago. We have tasted kirschwasser and birnenschnapps in Germany and based on what we tried at their shop they have taken the art to the okanagan valley. They also treated us like we were family even though I was butchering the german language. It will be part of our annual pilgrimage to interior BC.

Vielen dank für alles Jorg und Anette!

This tasting experience was a delight. Anette, owner with husband Jorge, indicated that her goal was that people from all over might take their spirits home and wherever they open a bottle of Maple Leaf Spirits and enjoy them, that the customer would enjoy the smells and flavours of the Okanagan.

I tasted the Kirsch, Williams Pear, Aged Italian Prune brandies, Quince liqueur, and Gewurztraminer and PInot Noir grappa style "skinnies." All were delightful, particularly the surprising and novel Quince liqueur. These are artisinal products of the highest quality made from carefully sourced ingredients.

Discussion their spirits, Anette was generous with time and information, friendly and smiling. I imagine that many people open a bottle of their spirits, even long after having purchased it, and linger in the memory of aromatic Okanagan summers filled with cherries, pears, and other fruit, but almost equally much remember a warm, friendly, and open tasting experience.

I brought a group of 15 to this unique artisan distillery for a tour & tasting. Everyone loved not only the outstanding products but the warm hospitality. The only difficulty I had was deciding what to purchase!
