“Worthwhile Tour of a Potato Vodka Distillery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Tyler, one of the owners, spent time in Scotland working at a scotch distillery and now has come back to B.C. to start his own Pemberton Potato vodka distillery. The pretty, windy road to the distillery, takes approximate 35 minutes from Whistler Village. We thoroughly enjoyed Tyler's tour of his distillery. He is very personable and we just enjoyed learning the process of how they make their vodka and gin. The tasting was a good too. We tasted 4 different spirits: the potato vodka; Absinthe, Gin and Organic Costa Rican Vanilla Vodka, (this was my favourite) - all made here. We purchased the vanilla vodka and the Cherry & Vanilla cocktail mix. I would definitely recommend this mini excursion to Pemberton, very worthwhile tour!!

“Local Fan of Potato Vodka & New Gin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Their Potato Vodak is amazing. Made out of our famous Pemberton Valleys Organic Potatos. Mycelia disolve all the cell membranes & convert the potato's starch to fuctose, leaving the faintest subtle fruit bouquet that lingers even through distilation. Admire the Vodka's legs, then try it chilled & neat over ice. Next ry it with unsweetened blueberry juice- really brings out the fruitiness. They recently started making a gin.when I attend this Years Cornicopia in Whistler it was a big success with the crowd & myself.
After outdoor sports the Distillery's Tour is the 1st thing I suggest & a very big hit with every Hotel guest thats taken the Tour. Check out the VIctorian Copper Steam Punk Kettles, Vats & Stills.

“Great stop between Sun Peaks and Whistler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We frequently drive the scenic Duffy Lake highway between Sun Peaks and Whistler and on a recent trip discovered the new Pemberton Distillery. Located just north of Pemberton in the industrial park, the immediate surroundings are modest while located in one of the most beautiful valley's I know. We met the owner Tyler that was preparing for the huge Whistler Cornucopia. The fact he was working with the Fairmont and a Sunshine Coast caviare producer endorsed its credibility. The fact the distillery was 9 months away from releasing its first whisky excited me further. And the reason for stopping in the first place - vodka and gin was wonderful. The distillery is open Thurs - Saturday through the winter and offers tastings and tours. The grounds are modest, but the high rating is due to the personality of the owner, the initiative and vision of the owner to place a distillery in this spectacular valley, and the beauty of the bicycle ride between the distillery and the potato farm. I would suggest riding from the farm to the distillery, rather than visa versa for obvious reasons.

“A hidden gem outside of Whistler”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We just spent a week in Whistler, BC and the concierge suggested the distillery as "something to do that's a little bit different". The distillery is a little bit north of Pemberton itself, but is pretty easy to find (look for the sign that says Distillery) and go to the end of the road. We tasted their vodka, gin and several liqueurs. I, personally, preferred the vodka as I am not much of a gin person, but the liqueurs were very nice too. The flavor of the vodka is subtle but distinctive (I really liked it!) while the flavors of the liqueurs are robust. The distillery has just started making single malt scotch whiskey, but we weren't able to do a tasting as it was only about 5 months old. They've done such a nice job with the rest of their liquors, that I'm going to make sure I return in a few years so I can sample their single malt!

The owners are very pleasant, patient and welcoming and make you feel like answering your questions are their only focus in life. Go here, it is really a nice experience!
