Classic German and eastern Europena spirits. Great experience
Oct. 2019
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.

Superb spirits and fruit liqueurs
Dec. 2019
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.

Delicious spirits and fruit liqueurs
Aug. 2019 • Couples
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.

The best of the bunch
Jul. 2019 • Friends
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.

Great host and unique tasting experience.
Jul. 2019 • Couples
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.

Amazing!
May 2019 • Friends
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!

Lovely experience
Jul. 2018 • Friends
I was on a wine tour at the end of July with about 30 or so people to celebrate a wedding we had all been at a few days prior, we made 7 stops at winery’s and then on way home we stopped in at maple leaf spirits. The owners were on their way out for the day when we asked if we could come in for some tastings they didn’t hesitate and even with us being a huge group they made it work half the group inside half out on their beautiful patio that over looks the lake. The owners are very friendly and knowledgable! The spirits were also very very good! I would highly recommend to everyone!

Thank you very much for taking the time to recommend us on TripAdvisor! Thank you for visiting our tasting room with your group in July. We had fun when you shared your joy about the wedding with us. Thank you for this lively experience! Did the photos turn out well that you took here from your group? The view in the background was stunning that day, overlooking Naramata Bench. We wish you great memories when you enjoy the liqueurs you bought here that day. Hopefully we will see some of you again in fall or next year! All the best for the new wife and husband!

Grappa!
Jul. 2018 • Friends
Had a great time here. It's not often that you find distillers with grappa! Anette was very knowledgeable and was an awesome host.

Thank you very much for taking the time to recommend us on TripAdvisor! It was great meeting you and to learn from you about how people enjoy real Grappa, (Marc, Tresterbrand or Raki ....) in Italy, and other Mediterranean countries. We hope you will visit us again next time you come to our area. By then we hope to have another European style grape based spirit ready for you to taste. Have a great time in Beautiful British Columbia!
