We stopped in after seeing a documentary at the Paramount and found it to be a refreshing change from the usual 'nightcap' spot. The spirit drinks were original and refreshing and had us trying something a little different outside of our comfort zone. Service was topnotch and we even ended up doing a taste test of some absinthe - fabulous!

Although I do not consume alcohol; I came in to buy a gift for a friend who heard that this local gem had impressive reviews from around the world. The moment I walked through the door I was treated like a long loyal customer! The service was amazingly friendly and the knowledge of their product line was great. I also... More

If you are in the area it is well worth you time to stop by and sample their spirits. Best cassis liqueur and Aquavit ever. Good gin. Nothing was bad. If you like spirits these guys are the tops.

There is a walking route of craft distillers/brewers etc and it starts with Okanagan Spirits. We sort of stumbled upon it. The lady working in this store was very knowledgeable about their products & we enjoyed trying some different spirits made from locally sourced ingredients, not the least of which was our fave, Absinthe. We enjoyed some samples before deciding... More

Great, short distillery tour...very informal, informative and FREE! The sampling was delicious! Their fruit liqueurs were lovely...super fruit & sweet. Try their Taboo absynth, if you enjoy licorice flavors.

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
