20 VPC members attended this very educational and enjoyable outing to the Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery in Vernon on Sunday, January 14, 2024.
At this outing we had a chance to get up close and capture images of the copper-pot stills, condensing still, numerous dials and gauges, fermentation vessels and the mash cooker.
We also enjoyed a curated tour encompassing how craft spirits are made at this award-winning distillery.
Thank you to our tour guide Andrew for a wealth of information.
After which we enjoyed a include sampling of three different spirits categories for those that wanted to sample the wares.
There was also alternative non-alchol samplings for those that wanted them.
