W e, Jorg and Anette Engel, started our Craft Distillery in Penticton and got our first distilling license in April 2004. We are the oldest BC distillery in the first owners’ hands. Jorg started distilling fruit in 2005.

We became a BC Craft Distillery when in 2013 the BC government allowed for small batch distilleries to market their products as “Craft”, adhering to regulations like local wineries. We then moved our business to the Naramata Bench where we offer customers a new experience while wine touring.
