My husband and I encountered this place on our wine tour and can honestly say it was one of the best parts of our trip to B.C. We were served by the owner and master distiller, Mike and he was patient, informative and honestly quite proud of his product and he should be. I am not a heavy drinker, neither... More

Read about Urban Distilleries on line and decided to drop in. We were met by Mike the owner, master distiller, bottler, cleaner, chief tour guide & tasting host. He was very friendly, showed us about the operation and then led us through the tasting. Enjoyed the whole experience! The modest fee for the tour and tasting was well worth it.... More

Our company did a tasting of the various products that urban distilleries has to offer back in mid July 2013. Everybody had their favorite take home spirit. Mine was the single malt whiskey that had a chunk of the french oak barrel in the bottle (instead of aging the whiskey in the barrel). Also the son was the master distiller... More

Was just there. Best of the tours/tastings in the interior of BC. The time spent here is great.Nice people to talk to and informative. The gin is to die for and the whisky is very tasty. Dont miss this, I know that we will return soon.

I've been to kelowna many times and it was my first time to this distillery. I wish I had found this place earlier. Randy gave us a tour and tastings. You can see the passion he has towards the distillery. It was all about quality not quantity. The tour was so informative and the gin tasted amazing. I've had many... More

A must see if you come to Kelowna!! I am usually doing wine tastings and this was my first spirits tastings. It was a great place and both of the owners were very nice. The tastings were not full shots, the alcohol is not harsh and very easy to sip. They do give you mixes to taste the spirits with... More

OK. Well that makes it sound like a seance - but it was great. Dropped in during the week and went through the tasting list with Mike Urban. The location is just a few blocks from downtown Kelowna - a few minutes drive - well worth it for a tiny tasting fee ($2 from memory) we tried lavender infused gin... More

The tour is an absolute must. The place is a micro brew family owned distillery, and the tour was supposed to be for 20 min (but we spent an hour). The owner (the dad) brought us around and gave us a great tour of the facilities. He very patiently answered ALL of our questions. We had an enjoyable time tasting... More

After wine tasting, we went to this distillery as our last stop, & it was definitely worth it. We were given a personal tour by the proprietor Mike who showed us the custom copper still and the process he used to make the fabulous spirits. The expresso & lavender spirits were out of this world, the aromas filled every olfactory... More
