Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery is Western Canada’s oldest craft distillery, dating back to 2004. The distillery sprung from the idea of using 100% locally grown fruits and grains to make premium, world-class spirits just a tractor-ride away from the orchards and fields where the base ingredients were grown. BC’s original harvest-to-flask distillery now offers a selection of more than 25 internationally awarded spirits ranging from BC’s first Single Malt Whisky to Gins, Vodkas, Liqueurs, Fruit Brandies and even Aquavit and Absinthe.
Okanagan Spirits is family owned and operated Distillery with two locations: one in Kelowna and one in Vernon. Both offer tours and tastings, and a chance to witness first-hand the magic of craft distilling at its best. And they’re not the only ones who think so! Okanagan Spirits was awarded “Distillery of the Year” at the 2013 and 2015 World Spirits Awards (Klagenfurt, Austria in 2013, and Køge, Denmark in 2015). In 2013, they also became North America’s only World Class rated distillery, a distinction they still hold proudly today.
