Urban Distilleries is a small, one man-show tucked away in an industrial area of Kelowna. Thanks to Siri, we had no problems finding the place. The first thing we noticed when walking through the door was the wonderful, unique smell of the place. When we arrived the owner, Mike, who does the tours, was in the middle of one so... More

So between here & Okanagan Spirits, you will get a far better tasting experience at this spot, with better customer attention. There is a tasting fee of $5, which is waived with a purchase, but for the fee you will be able to try the full selection made here (not just 3 options as offered elsewhere). The flavour infused vodkas,... More

This place is tucked away in the industrial area of downtown Kelowna reasonably near the river. You definitely need to have good directions or gps to find your way here. It's not the prettiest building to look at, but pretty much what you'd expect in the industrial area. Inside it's very small and there isn't much to see. The service... More

We arrived before noon & Mike, the owner, gave us the story and showed us the process. Then we had tastings of most of the different products and sat at the bar and talked to him for awhile. He then had other people come in to taste & gave us the ok to take pictures. It was a fun experience... More

I was not really a gin drinker, until........Spirit Bear Gin from Urban Distilleries! I now make a cucumber gin martini with this gin, and it is amazing! Everyone loves it! This gin has such a nice smooth taste. Give it a try and I am sure you will love it too!

Urban Distilleries in Kelowna is a nice place to sample some very well-made spirits and get a stiff mixed drink. Although I'm not a Gin drinker, I must say the flavour of their Gin was really an eye opener. I sincerely wish I had more money left over from wine-touring at this point to splurge on one of their excellent... More

We visited Urban Distilleries while visiting Kelowna at the end of June because we heard some great things from friends and read great reviews. We did a tasting flight and the spirits were awesome (especially the peri peri and vanilla vodkas). However, the person who was working there was not very welcoming and slightly standoffish which was disappointing. We left... More

Urban Distilleries is owned and operated by a young man whose last name is Urban. While vodkas are his specialties there are other whiskies just as wonderful. There is a small fee for a tasting "flight" but worth more than the cost. If it is available try the rum! We purchased the vanilla vodka to take to a family reunion... More

Mike is an excellent host. His products? They are definitely part of the high quality gems from The Okanagan Valley.

Owner was kind and unprentious. It was refreshing after touring some snooty wineries. The Whisky makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Its a little out of the way but worth the detour.
