We found this place on google and boy has it become our favorite reason to visit Vernon. We did a great tasting with some unexpected but wonderful spirits. We even had an impromptu tour. Try the blackcurrent or rhubarb liqueurs, yummy. Well worth a visit.

This distillery makes excellent spirits using unique and local products. I won't tell you what they are, do a tasting tour to find out. Great Okanagan products.

We were greeted by John and he was fantastic. He knows his products and the way they are produced and he has a knack for dumbing it down for the less knowledgeable consumer. The set up of the distillery is quite pleasing and makes you...More

The storefront has a terrific setup, very interesting, spread out and comfortable. No pressure sales but the staff were all really helpful Sampled their gins and liquers and ended up buying some of each. Their gin is really good

This place is awesome! Loved the tasting and will definitely be buying some of the blackcurrant liqueur. Really cool place to stop in at if you are in Vernon. The staff is so friendly, especially Craig who helped my husband and I. Thank you!
