I stopped in with a Japanese student today to do some sampling. We tried Sea Buckthorn (very unique) and their award winning Black Current liqueur as well as Taboo Absinthe. all were excellent. I can imagine the black currant liqueur with your favorite sparkling water or dry sparkling wine as an awesome summer cocktail. I was convinced by their staff... More

We sampled some brandy and liquor yesterday with my parents and really enjoyed ourselves. This is a quick little stop and prepare to drop some $$ because after you taste the quality of the product you will be coming home with a variety of bottles. I love the Gin and the pear brandy was well received. The staff was friendly,... More

Had a great visit with my wife to these guys Beautiful Kelowna Distillery but then found out that the original distillery (BC's first craft distillery apparently) was in downtown Vernon, so we just had to visit on our way through to Banff. This location is less posh than the Kelowna distillery but we were able to have a great visit... More

We had heard that our local Vernon distillery was producing some really interesting products but were surprised and delighted with the quality of both the wine based "liquers" and the distilled spirits, in particular, the gin. We were welcomed by Tony, given a tour of the premises and an explanation of the processes they use. Very knowledgeable people, friendly, helpful,... More

If you have an absence of Absinthe or enjoy drinking your seven daily fruits in a glass, go to Okanagan Spirits and try everything they make! You won't be disappointed!

I hate wine, so finding this place was great because I could do a tasting of Liqueurs and other fun things! So tasty and ended up buying a bottle of Blueberry Liqueur to take home with me. Tasting prices are very reasonable $5 for three tastings and if you end up buying a bottle they waive the charge. Awesome place,... More

This was a lot of fun. We were surprised when they were actually distilling the spirits right out where you could see it. The facility is incredible clean, and their spirits were fantastic to try. You can try them all for free, but they are so good you will likely end up buying something.

No visit to the Okanagan is complete without going here! Their fruit wines are to die for...and they do mail order too! You won't regret it!
