This was the final surprise stop on our MJO wine tour today and it was worth it! Excellent tour and tasting of all the spirits and I especially loved the Taboo absinthe.

Really! This distillery has won top honours as the best in the world. And they have moved to a larger, brighter, more accessible location. Hint, try the Absinthe, it will astound you. Actually, they make everything well. I was definitely curious when they released a Single Malt Scotch whiskey, as I am a self confessed snob of Single Malts. Well,... More

The new Okanagan Spirits Distillery is as good as the product. Enter a prohibition era speakeasy atmosphere complete with a gangster car and moonshiners shack. The outdoor lounge and whiskey tasting area only add to the comfort. The distillery itself is impressive with one of the tallest stills in North America gleaming copper stretching beyond the roof of the building.... More

We decided to stop in on this newer attraction in Vernon, not expecting much. Were we ever wrong... The distillery was beautiful and amazingly built and the service by the Dycks' was fantastic. You could tell how passionate they are in making their own spirits just from how they tell you their story. Most importantly though, that same passion and... More

We got there late in the afternoon, but Tom the owner gave us a great tour, and description of the distillery equipment and history of the company and area. This is described as a craft distillery, and it shows in their bright copper equipment. We had a great tasting experience and bought several of their fruit based liquors, and a... More

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.
