About
Wayward Distillery is a True Craft distillery located in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. Balancing tradition with creativity, Wayward is the first distillery in Canada using honey as the base for all of its spirits. With this as a curious starting point, the only obvious direction to take is an unpredictable one. Our signature Unruly Vodka and Unruly Gin are beautiful, hand-crafted examples of what can happen when unruly people meet unruly bees. Couple this with our seasonally changing, ultra-small batch experimental Wayward Order Line and you will truly understand our need to break moulds and blaze trails. Welcome to our Wayward life. Welcome to Wayward Distillery.

Must see!
Jul. 2021
Amazing visit. A must see if in Courtney. The staff was very friendly and informative. Such a cool concept - making spirits from honey. The raspberry gin is the most spectacular and an absolute must purchase. When COVID ends and the bar reopens, it will be even better to go have a cocktail.

This was such a cool experience in Courtenay! They produce such good gin, vodka and honey rum. It is so good and the staff are so nice. Definitely recommend a visit, it is such a cool spot in the Valley here.

What a great ,informative tour of the distillation process and a splendid tasting of the products and some creative cocktails. Ask them why they only distil 26 times. You will love the answer. The only distillery I know that starts with pure honey and creates such interesting products from it.

A great visit with enthusiastic staff and delicious drink!
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Stopped in a the Wayward Distillation House after a visit to one of the local wineries. Sam, the staff member who greeted us, was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgable. Had no idea that spirits could be made just from honey! He took us through the distillery itself, guided through the tastings and brought out all the different botanicals that are used in the gin so that we could smell them while tasting. It was all very educational. Better yet, I loved both the vodka and the gin, so we bought one of each. Apparently they also make cocktails here, so I am sure they are also delicious.

A must see if in the Comox area. It was a rainy day but our visit lifted our spirits!
All honey based products.
We were given a tour of the distillery. Very interesting and informative. Some laughs too!
The tasting room was my favourite part. Cocktails or tasters available.
You must try the Krupnik!

Follow up tasting via Laura
Oct. 2018
Laura introduced me to Waywards interesting products at Robson farmers market end October. Found the dessert liquor named Sk. Delicious. When we talked about my upcoming trip to Vancouver Island she gave me a card
Found my way to their distillery. You’ll need a gps.
Their production guy patiently helped me sample my way to their unruly vodka and it’s sweet smoothness was best for my budget.

Must stop here and taste the Krupnik!
Jul. 2018 • Friends
This is by far the best place I saw during my tour of distilleries and wineries! And who knew honey could produce such nice tasting spirits - just loved the Krupnik... And couldn’t leave without purchasing a few of their products! They are so knowledgeable and friendly - and no pressure to hurry up and go... their spirits truly are unique!
