A Tradition
of Inspiration

Pioneers in Craft Distilling in Penticton, BC since 2005, we, Jorg and Anette Engel, offer you a unique experience to enjoy while touring this world-class wine region. We are proud to offer our award winning spirits, brandies, Gin, and liqueurs, handcrafted from local Okanagan-grown fruit and wine, distilled following European techniques and tradition. In our collection, you will find classic Swiss-style Kirsch, Pear Williams, and various other complex fruit-based spirits. A variety of fruit liqueurs celebrate fresh sun ripened Okanagan cherries, apricots, peaches, or pears. .

We are home to the famous and award-winning wine brandy, "Lady of the Cask", aged in oak barrels since 2010. She won for the third time "Best in Class" at the Canadian Artisan Spirit Competition, awarded as the best brandy in Canada in 2020, 2022, and 2024.

W e, Jorg and Anette Engel, started attained our distilling license and established our Craft Distillery in Penticton in April 2004. We are now BC’s oldest distillery still owned by the founders. Jorg started distilling fruit in 2005.

We officially became a BC Craft Distillery when in 2013 the provincial government allowed for small batch distilleries to market their products as “Craft”, reflecting the existing regulations for wineries. We then moved our business to the world-renowned Naramata Bench where we pride ourselves on offering customers a unique experience while wine touring.
