267 Bernard Avenue
Take a stroll downtown Bernard Avenue in Kelowna, and pay us a visit at our Prohibition Edition boutique craft distillery and cocktail lounge.
With the introduction of prohibition in the 1920’s, a shadowy, underground distilling industry sprang into existence. One hundred years later, that prohibition spirit lives on at BC’s Original Craft Distillery. Let our “Prohibition Edition” distillery take you back to where the western frontier’s small-batch farm-to-flask spirit production all began, while you savour the spirits that ignited BC’s authentic distilling renaissance.
With a desire to pay homage to our use of local fruit and its history in Kelowna, our distillery was constructed using reclaimed wood from the Laurel and Gellatly Bay fruit packing houses. Being “your” local distillery, we take our historical stewardship seriously, and we believe it shows in how the local terroir, our passion, and our family’s Okanagan heritage are expressed in our alcohols. Also, reflecting our vision of reducing our carbon footprint, the whole distillery was crafted to tread softly on the environment, right down to our environmentally friendly, recycled glass, sparkling spirits countertop.
Our distillery opens its doors daily to locals and tourists alike, with an opportunity to taste and learn about the production of our award winning spirits. Throughout the year we also offer the Barrel Room Patio and Lounge where you can enjoy our premium 100% BC handcrafted spirits in cocktail form (please visit Barrel Room Patio and Lounge to see hours and menu).
A unique and eye-catching 3,000 sq ft location, our craft distillery is also available for private functions. To book us for an event, please email email@example.com.

In early 2015, we relocated and redesigned our original flagship Vernon Distillery, which is now home to North America’s tallest copper pot still, towering over a 1930’s style production facility that allows us to keep up to growing demand, and to vastly expand our Whisky production capabilities. Both of our distillery locations also have an onsite Barrel Room distillery lounge and patio, allowing patrons the ability to taste handcrafted cocktails and learn some new recipes from Canada’s craft distilling pioneer.
