Dubh Glas (dugh-luhs) in Gaelic means “from the dark water” and is reflective of the source water used in the making of our feature spirits. A well on the property is where we source our pure ‘dark’ water, which is fed by an underground aquifer. That source water from the ‘dark depths’ has been filtered through the Okanagan Valley, free of pollutants and surface contamination.  It is also reflective of Grant Stevely, the artisan distiller, who has shared the name in his family for generations.

It’s not just about the whisky at the Dubh Glas Distillery – although it is our first priority. It’s about a passion to create a distillery from the ground up that uses the finest raw products and materials available. From the Canadian barley and select botanicals in Noteworthy Gin, to the cooperage making our whisky barrels, every step of the process has been thoroughly researched before it is used in crafting our spirits.

We want to showcase our Dubh Glas products however, we also want to educate our customers about our distilling process and highlight everything the world of whisky, gin and spirits have to offer in the emerging Craft Distilling industry.

We think you’ll agree that you will be able to taste our passion in every bottle we produce.

Stevely’s love of single malt whisky and complex quality spirits has grown to an appreciation where he has offered whisky tastings corporately, privately and at the international destination Resort where he worked before moving to the Okanagan Valley. He has increased his knowledge and experience by visiting multiple artisan distillers from the west coast and across Canada to the popular distilling regions in Scotland. Meeting and discussing distilling with craft distillers across Canada, attending whisky events, and his love of whisky and spirits brought him to experiment in small batches at home before making the leap to become a true Craft Distillery in the heart of the wine region of BC. He has travelled to the United States to attend workshops on both distilling and distillery operations that gave him the experience and education to help him now produce some of the highest quality spirits you will ever get a chance to taste from a micro distillery.

Enthusiasm coupled with passion for quality spirits and ingredients has given him a distinct advantage in running a distillery producing artisanal spirits that consumers will taste in every bottle he produces. More >

Our award winning (Gold Medal with Distinction – Canadian Artisan Spirit Competition 2020) Noteworthy Gin is our flagship gin which is a hand-crafted, small batch gin made from 100% British Columbian grown barley, carefully fermented in stainless steel and then transferred to our German copper pot still. After three precision distillations – two to clean the spirit and one to infuse our botanicals, it is then both hand bottled and labeled allowing constant monitoring of the quality control process.

Ceres, the Roman Goddess of agriculture and grain crops, inspired this exquisite gin recipe. Our careful, meticulous process contributes to the smoothness of this refreshing and carefully balanced gin making it ideal for cocktails, the classic G&T or your favorite martini. It’s an incredibly balanced and refreshing gin.

Everything about Noteworthy, from the premium packaging to the raw ingredients is about quality and craftsmanship.  Our attention to detail and passion for high quality spirits is in every bottle.

Other distillers make perfectly good gin. Ours is Noteworthy.

Our Virgin Spirits Barley is double-distilled in a copper pot still using 100% British Columbia malted barley. It is a reflection of the premium single-malt currently being produced and aged in oak barrels at the distillery in the heart of the Okanagan Valley.

When a new oak barrel is used in the production of whisky, it’s called virgin oak as it has not yet been touched by the spirit. Our name, Virgin, in much the same way, is echoed as it has yet to be touched by the maturity of an oak barrel. It is a very polished new-make spirit that has been meticulously fermented, diligently distilled and remains un-filtered to retain the character of what only our Virgin Spirits have to offer

Enjoy rich notes of vanilla, caramel and banana with fresh tropical fruit. With just a hint of the grain itself on the finish, our Virgin Spirits can be enjoyed in your favourite whisky cocktail or simply on its own to appreciate the subtleties and nuances our spirit has to offer.

Virgin Spirits Barley is currently only available on-site at the distillery or for on-line purchase.
