Craig was genuine, fun and educational on our tour. Amazing to hear how this distillery started, has grown, sets itself apart and is 100% local. New appreciation for what it means to have the craft label in BC. Very cool distillation column, only 2 in the world.

We asked several questions and all... More

After a day of golfing and before dinner we stopped in for a tour and tasting. Peter gave us the royal treatment, his knowledge and willingness to share made for a great experience. This will definitely be in the "Must Do" list for family and friends that come to visit!

Throughly enjoyed the special 'Sweet Sips' Valentine's Day event they hosted. From the welcome cocktail featuring their Cherry Liqueur through all 5 tastings, everything was top notch! Lovely to have a chance to taste some of their newer 'sips' paired with beautiful handcrafted chocolates from Chocoliro Finest Chocolate - artisan chocolate for artisan spirits! We will be watching for other... More

Great place for Xmas shopping! Could use more sampler size bottles of hard liquor. Nice pre-wrapped combos. Like that there was swag and local salsa too. Seemed a bit short staffed. LOVE that local productS r the main ingredients at this distillery.
