Distillery Profile: Legend Distilling
Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 4, 2016
A distilling revolution is underway as small craft distilleries are beginning to make an impact on the landscape of Canadian spirits. About a month ago I profiled the Big Rig Craft Distillery, in Nisku, Alberta, and today I am hopping (in a virtual way) across the Rocky Mountains to Naramata, British Columbia to profile one of the Pacific Province’s newest Craft Distilleries, Legend Distilling.
Legend Distilling is a small craft distillery in the heart of B.C. Okanagan Wine Country. Owner’s Dawn and Doug Lennie moved to Naramanta 11 years ago and witnessed the progression of the wine business happening all around them. They were already running their own businesses, but had a dream of working together to build a new company they could share. Whiskey had always been a passion of Doug’s, and he had also been watching what was going on with craft distilling in the US. Both Dawn and he decided that spirits would be a great business to bring to the community as a compliment to all the great wines available around them. For Dawn and Doug, offering something new in the area was key. This included their unique location along the Naramata Bench, as other distilleries were being located in more industrial areas.
My complete virtual tour of Legend Distilling which includes profiles of their locally produced Vodka, Gin and Specialty Liqueurs can be found by clicking on the following link:
Note: I have received samples of most of the product line-up, and my review of their unique smokey rosemary flavoured gin, Defender Island will in a couple of days as my Gin Binge continues.
