THE DISTILLERY

Located in Kelowna, BC, and founded in 2009, Urban Distilleries is the oldest and largest craft distillery in British Columbia. We are dedicated to crafting our “Spirit Bear” line of ultra premium, hand made Eaux de Vie (Okanagan Grappa, Calvados, Schnapps, kirsch), Gin, Vodka, naturally infused Vodkas, liqueurs & Single Malt Whisky. Each batch of our spirits is distilled in German made, artisan copper stills using premium Okanagan grains and fruits. All our products are gluten free and 100% natural, with no artificial colors or flavorings. Urban Distilleries is a steward of the land, we practice traditional and sustainable distillation. The energy used to heat the stills, is also used to heat the building, the hot water generated to cool the stills is resused for the next mash and the left over mash after distillation is used by farmers to either grow the next harvest or as feed for live stock.

Our German made copper stills have been crafted to exacting specifications by Arnold Holstein; a highly regarded German still manufacturer. We feature a 600 liter capacity Arnold Holstein pot still equipped with two rectification columns as well as a 300 liter Arnold Holstein pot still.
