It’s no secret that I love the Okanagan.In fact, it’s my favorite place in the whole world and I can’t wait until the day we can move down there (it’s on my list of things to accomplish before 30). What’s not to love? The Okanagan offers so much: beautiful summers, fresh fruit, must visit wineries, and a world class liqour distillery called Okanagan Spirits.

Okanagan Spirits is a world class distillery located in the heart of The Okanagan.

Okanagan Spirits: Who are they?

Okanagan Sparkler cocktail recipe from Okanagan Spirits and The Bewitchin' KitchenOkanagan Spirits is a family owned and operated craft distillery located (in both) Kelowna and Vernon, British Columbia. Not only are they Western Canada’s first and oldest craft distillery they are also North America’s first and only recognized World Class Distillery.

I can’t forget to mention that Okanagan Spirits is the only distillery in North America to win Distillery of the Year at the World Spirits Awards.

The British Columbia company stays true to their roots and is 100% BC, meaning their award winning liquor is made from 100% BC fruit. There are no additives, chemicals or artificial flavors in Okanagan Spirits – just 100% British Columbia.

There are over 25 varieties of liquor produced in traditional copper-pot Stills, including: fruit brandies, liqueurs, marc (grappa), aquavit, gin, vodka, whisky and Taboo genuine absinthe.
