Distillery

A Tradition of
Inspiration

Pioneers in Craft Distilling in Penticton, BC since 2005, Jorg and Anette Engel from Maple Leaf Spirits are proud to offer award winning spirits and liqueurs handcrafted from Okanagan grown fruit, grapes and wine. We distill fine spirits from wine and lees following the European tradition of making grappa, tresterbrand and marc.
Our newest product is a fine V.S.O.P. brandy, the "Lady of the Cask", reminiscent of Cognac.
Our fruit liqueurs celebrate fresh sun ripened Okanagan fruit, and are great as a lovely sweet treat or to enhance your dessert or cocktail. We invite you to visit our tasting room on the Naramata Bench and look forward to welcoming you.

 

Our tasting room is open Friday – Saturday 1 – 5pm and
 daily by chance or by appointment.
We will be open this summer daily 1pm – 6pm beginning April 17, 2017

Taste some of the finest European style fruit brandies, spirits and liqueurs.
We offer tours in English, German or French.
