    Classic German and eastern Europena spirits. Great experience
    We weren't sure the distillery was open as it was a cool and rainy day but we were greeted warmly by Anette Engel. Anette explained their interest in classic German and eastern European spirits that make use of the bounty of fruits from the local area. All based on what they knew from Germany and other countries. We enjoyed a quite lengthy tasting and pleasant conversation with Anette. Each spirit we tried was an excellent example of the style and showed lovely fruit. Their sprits show the quality of the local fruits and the skill of Jorg and Anette Engel as distillers. Sadly we were unable to take more than one bottle ( and it was difficult to pick) as we were flying and limited to weight. While we didn't see all, they Engels also keep exotic birds. Very interesting. The view from the property is lovely, even on a gray, rainy day.
    Hi Dave, thank you very much for taking the time to write this very nice review for us and our products! We enjoyed meeting you and hope that you can come back for more enjoyable experiences in Penticton when travel restrictions ease. All the best and stay healthy!

    Yummy Tasting Experience
    While touring wine country around Osoyoos we traveled the Naramata wine bench. I was thrilled to notice a craft distillery called Maple Leaf Spirits. Years ago we had found this place right in Penticton and it was awesome to see it had been moved out onto the bench with all the other fine establishments there. Our host and creator of the fine liqueurs and spirits there sat us down on his inviting patio with stupendous views of the valley overlooking the lake. We were served a wide selection of fine spirits that he makes on the premises. He also shared his personal journey in creating his business as we sat and sipped. My all time favourite was the maple liqueur. You absolutely have to try it!

    Distillery with a Taste of the Okanagan Valley
    We throughly enjoyed our time with Anette Engel. She was friendly and knowledgeable. Took a lot of time explaining their processes and making us feel welcomed. The added bonus was the variety of pheasants they have on their premises

With a small group we sampled 4 fruit liqueurs and a 9 year old cognac. Also a maple flavoured liqueur. All were excellent examples of what they produce. My favourite was the pear liqueur. Definitely return for another spirit adventure.

What a great alternative to all the wine tastings in the area! The spirits and especially the fruit liqueurs taste amazing. The owner Jorg and his wife explain everything about their passion and are so welcoming and kind. We enjoyed our visit a lot and would highly recommend it. Also, if you are not so much into high-proof drinks, take a look at their colourful pheasants or just enjoy the view over the vineyards on one of the comfortable benches.

We took some friends on a distillery tour of the South Okanagan and Maple Lead Spirits was by far the best experience. Barbara made all the difference, even though there was another couple sampling with us she made everyone feel like it was a personal experience. Her knowledge and general passion for the spirits she is presenting to us made for a very memorable experience. And I haven’t even mentioned the spirits. A good variety distilled in the German tradition made us feel like we were back in Bavaria.
Just a note, the Maple Liqueur makes an excellent martini when chilled and paired with some Okangan Vodka.

I didn't expect to enjoy this tasting as much, but I was pleasantly surprised. The location is superb with a great view of the Naramata bench and the lake. The spirits were a new expereince for me and I walked out with two bottles of cherry kirsch, one for a friend and one for myself.
The host was knowledgeable, and conversational.

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!
