Pioneers in Craft Distilling since 2005 in British Columbia, we produce fine European style spirits, fruit brandies and liqueurs. A true family business, we at Maple Leaf Spirits Inc offer award winning spirits and liqueurs in our boutique style tasting room in Penticton on the beautiful Naramata Bench. Master Distiller Jorg Engel uses sun-ripened locally grown fruit, grapes and wine. In March 2013 we won the Gold medal for our Aged Italian Prune spirit at the Destillata, International Competition for Spirits and Liqueurs in Vienna, Austria. In 2008 we won prestigious awards at the Destillata, including Spirit of the Year for our Skinny Pinot Noir spirit as well as Gold Medals for Maple Liqueur. Please visit us for a truly unique experience!

DO NOT PASS THIS GEM BY..... We attended the Penticton Farmers & flea market where they had a booth set up to sample. VERY impressed and we took the time to visit them at their location across from Red Rooster and Ruby Blues Winery. Came out with Maple Syrup Liquor, Cherry drink made locally in the Okanagan. Also sampled some... More

Jorg and Anette donated a package to a high school fundraiser that included 6 of their spirits paired with appetizers, and we were the winning bid. The pairings were well thought out, and were all very high quality products, but the highlight of the evening was listening to Jorg tell their story. The journey they took from the original idea,...

It was a pleasure to meet Jorg and see his passion for his fruit brandies first hand. The distillery was a little hard to find, but well worth the search.

We stopped by here unexpectedly, but it definitely turned out to be a fantastic experience! One of the best views of any stop along the bend, and the staff (Jorg, Anete, Sascha and Anika) were incredibly polite, personable, friendly and knowledgeable! We were fortunate enough to sample quite the variety of spirits! I would definitely recommend trying their Maple Liquer... More

Decided to stop by this place as a break from all of the wine tasting we had incurred. Very good decision! We were greeted by Marley (see pictures) and one of the owners. He instantly grabbed him for a picture and welcomed us to their distillery. Well worth the stop! The men enjoyed all 4 of the 40% alcohol. And... More

We stopped by the distillery and visited for quite a while with the owner and distiller. They make fruit liquors and spirits here. And they are YUMMY!! I highly recommend the pear. They are both friendly and informative. It is a small, family owned operation. They have been in business since 2005.

We had a good experience but there was pressure to donate to a not for profit organization for the samples. In addition, the staff were much more aggressive in selling the product than I normally encounter. The spirits did seem to be of high quality though. Just a little aggressive in the money collection area.
