An apple a day…

I moved my family to Kelowna, BC in the summer of 2010, and purchased a long producing apple orchard. Situated in a small corner of South East Kelowna, I set out to start farming fruit for the very first time.

“The spirit of Kelowna is alive on our farm”

After 5 years of cultivating, planting, fertilizing, pruning, harvesting and selling to large commercial co-ops, I felt detached and without any connection to our end customers. I realized we had to change direction, but, remain in farming and continue to produce a great tasting product.  I had to figure out a better way to add more value to our apples.

“I wanted to remain in farming and produce a great tasting product”

I stumbled upon a small distillery in upstate New York that was transforming apples into vodka, and the idea was born. I spent many months researching copper still manufactures. I traveled to Chicago, to meet the North American representative for Kothe. One of the oldest German copper still manufacturers in the world. We worked hard with Kothe, our many investors, local suppliers, contractors and service providers, to transform our property to what it is today.

A brand new 5,500 square foot state of the art Distillery and Tasting Room situated on a quiet road, in God’s country. Come see what all the excitement is about and get your “apple a day” in a whole new way!
