Calling all you gin lovers out there, you have not tasted anything as good as the two gins made here. The lavender flavoured one was my favorite one by far. And, the yummy continued with the whiskey and the liqueurs. Very happy to have searched this place out in the industrial part of Kelowna.

Had visitors from out of town and have had so many winery tours I just couldn't take another one, so we decided to try this out. The tour was extremely informative. I am still amazed by the process. The owner's story is so interesting - I admire his entrepreneurial spirit! The tasting area was very busy as there was a... More

Urban Distilleries is a small, one man-show tucked away in an industrial area of Kelowna. Thanks to Siri, we had no problems finding the place. The first thing we noticed when walking through the door was the wonderful, unique smell of the place. When we arrived the owner, Mike, who does the tours, was in the middle of one so... More

So between here & Okanagan Spirits, you will get a far better tasting experience at this spot, with better customer attention. There is a tasting fee of $5, which is waived with a purchase, but for the fee you will be able to try the full selection made here (not just 3 options as offered elsewhere). The flavour infused vodkas,... More

This place is tucked away in the industrial area of downtown Kelowna reasonably near the river. You definitely need to have good directions or gps to find your way here. It's not the prettiest building to look at, but pretty much what you'd expect in the industrial area. Inside it's very small and there isn't much to see. The service... More

We arrived before noon & Mike, the owner, gave us the story and showed us the process. Then we had tastings of most of the different products and sat at the bar and talked to him for awhile. He then had other people come in to taste & gave us the ok to take pictures. It was a fun experience... More

I was not really a gin drinker, until........Spirit Bear Gin from Urban Distilleries! I now make a cucumber gin martini with this gin, and it is amazing! Everyone loves it! This gin has such a nice smooth taste. Give it a try and I am sure you will love it too!
