This is a small distillery that has fairly recently moved to a new spacious location in Vernon. The new building is well appointed and has a great tasting bar. I find some of the liquors not of a flavour that I enjoy, but others are very good. This is apparently because of a base that they use. The staff are... More

This was my second visit. It's an interesting place. They have a video room showing a short film about the distillery. The still itself is on view, and a magnificent piece of shiny equipment it is! Take a selfie in front of their lovely old 'gangster' style car. Access is not problematical. The washroom facilities are good. There is even... More

Last Christmas our nephew gave us a bottle of Laird of Fintry I could hardly believe such an exceptional whisky could be made in the new world. This year we've journeyed to the source and found very reasonably priced gifts of the consumable variety. No one needs more junk. A thoughtful tasting is the perfect homework needed before "Christmas shopping... More

the distillery is very spacious, clean and beautifully laid out. They have a wide range of delicious spirit made with Okanagan fruits. They also make some unique spirits (like rhubarb liquer) that you wont find anywhere else. They also have the capacity to host client events. Very nice place.

We had friends over last summer and we had never been to the new distillery. We were greeted by a very knowledgeable gal (sorry forgot the name). She was pleasant, knowledgeable and very friendly. Our friends really enjoyed the tasting and the history of the distillery. Of course we all left with some goodies in hand and as locals we... More

I take all out of town visitors here and without fail there are purchases made. The liqueurs are so tasty. I also enjoy visiting their booth at our local farmers market where you can also do some tasting. OH and let's not forget the drunken cherries,......yummm

This is one of the best tasting facilities I have ever been to. Their quality products and their attention to detail recognizing the history of fruit growing is just great. Their use of local fruit and grain in their production of award winning fruit liquers, malt whiskeys and other beverages makes us very lucky to be living here in Vernon.

This is a great spot to take visitors to Vernon or if your in visiting and want something different than wine tasting. They make fantastic products and the staff and owners are a ton of fun. They take great pride in their product and their fantastic new facility. As a result of their suggestion to taste new products there we've... More

Fantastic place to visit full of tradition and professionalism. The guide (Simmy) was very informative and friendly. Great tasting fruit liquors and grain spirits. Pricing is good with most liquors starting at $30. Pity no malt whiskey was available during our visit.
