We'll be closed July 1, 2022. We will, as always, be taking time to think about Canada's history as a colonizer, a refuge, a country proud of its diversity yet intolerant in so many ways.

We have been aging our Pictish Pride Wee Heavy (a Scottish Ale) in a Laird of Fintry whisky barrel, and we'll be pouring samples alongside samples of the Laird itself. The Laird of Fintry is Okanagan Spirits' signature single malt, much sought-after and available only in limited quantities. It's got all the subtlety and sophistication of a whisky from Scotland, bred right here in the North Okanagan! We are privileged to have access to their...
