Went here back in September with my sister and loved this place. Loved the liqueurs, one that was my favourite was the huckleberry. I even tried the bourbon as I love whiskey and is really smooth and goes down nice. Highly recommended to go to

I just don't like this place. I know it's the brewing process but it stinks. Yes it's very "cool and trendy" but the smell makes for a horrible visit. The whole place is an oxymoron. It sells hard liquor with fancy flavours but you have...More

Hello Exploration701795, Our family is sorry that your experience at BC’s Original Farm-to-Flask distillery was offensive to your nose. Unfortunately, with traditional craft spirits production, the only way to make alcohol is to first ferment the fruits and/or grains and then, in order to liberate...More

I took friends to taste and tour, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Very knowledgeable staff, and very interesting. I was gifted with a bottle of apple based vodka by the friends - the upside of taking friends to see attractions! Great place to visit!
