Sowing the Seeds of Innovation in the Spirits Industry

Canadian Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery is a trailblazer in the world of craft distilleries. This family-owned enterprise prides itself on its pioneering and innovative distillation techniques, an assortment of top-notch spirits, and it's adherence to organic, farm-to-flask principles.

A Pioneer in the World of Craft Distilleries

In business for less than two decades, Okanagan Spirits has already redefined and set the bar high for craft distilling. The distillery was the first in Western Canada to produce a genuine, 100% BC-made Absinthe - named "TABOO", and they also have Canada's oldest Single Malt Whisky still under their roof. These milestones highlight their dedication to craftsmanship and mastering the art of distillation which – paired with their unwavering commitment to using locally sourced ingredients – sets them apart in the distillery world.

Staying True to Local Roots

One of the noteworthy elements of Okanagan Spirits is its dedication to supporting the local agriculture industry. Employing a farm-to-flask approach, the distillery sources all of its fruits and grains from local farmers. This ensures that every sip of their spirits drips with the taste of the lush Okanagan Valley – a treat for both the senses and the local economy.

A Storied Collection of Spirits

To showcase their extreme passion and skill, the distillery boasts an impressive lineup of award-winning spirits. From gin, vodka, single malt whisky, and brandies to absinthe, fruit liqueurs, bitters and aquavit, there's something exciting for every spirits connoisseur at Okanagan Spirits.

Leading Forefront in Sustainable Distilling

Okanagan Spirits doesn't just stop at premium product production. They are also playing a pivotal part in promoting sustainable distilling by operating on a waste-not model. Spent grains are returned to farmers for feed, and any fruit waste is composted or used as cattle feed, ensuring nothing goes to waste.

In Conclusion

Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery isn’t just a distillery. It’s a testimony to the art and science blend of distilling, respect for local agriculture, and an underlying commitment to sustainable business practices.
