Maple Leaf Spirits
A Tradition of Inspiration
Pioneers in Craft Distilling in Penticton, BC since 2005, Jorg and Anette Engel are proud to offer award-winning wine brandy, fruit spirits and liqueurs handcrafted from local Okanagan-grown fruit, and wine. Master Distiller Jorg crafts following European techniques and tradition. You find classic Swiss-style Kirsch, Pear Williams, “Skinny” Pommes Brandy, and various other complex fruit-based spirits. We are home to the famous and award-winning wine brandy, “Lady of the Cask”, aged in oak barrels since 2010; she won for the second time “Best in Class” at the Canadian Artisan Spirit Competition 2022, awarded as the best brandy in Canada.
A variety of fruit liqueurs celebrate fresh sun-ripened Okanagan cherries, apricots, peaches or pears. The popular Maple Liqueur is great neat, on ice, or to enhance your dessert or cocktail. We invite you to visit our tasting room and enjoy samples on our patio overlooking the Naramata Bench.
