Laird back up for lottery

Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery has launched its 2015 Laird of Fintry Single Malt Whisky lottery.

Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery is pleased to announce the opening of its much anticipated 2015 Laird of Fintry Single Malt Whisky lottery.

Produced in small batches using 100 per cent B.C. malted barley, the exclusive Laird of Fintry is released only once a year by lottery due to its high demand and limited quantity.

Since its release in 2013, the single malt whisky has found itself shipped across Canada, the United States and taken home by winners across the globe.

Interest in the B.C. ‘Scotch-style’ whisky has spiked since winning gold medal status at the coveted World Spirits Awards held in Denmark this spring.

Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery hopes to release 1,500 bottles into the rapidly growing lottery which consisted of 3,000 participants back in 2014.

Choosing a name to pay homage to the history of whisky in the Okanagan, the distillery uses a replica label of the original Laird of Fintry Single Malt Whisky. In turn for the label the distillery supports the Friends of Fintry Society with an annual donation to help maintain the original property of the Laird.

The 2015 lottery will be open until Sept. 30. It is free to sign-up and can be done so by visiting either distillery in Vernon and Kelowna or by signing up online at

The draw will take place the week of Oct. 19 and winners will be notified directly from the distillery by either e-mail or telephone.

Currently the only way to taste the Laird is at the Kelowna location’s Barrel Room Patio and Lounge on Bernard Avenue., where a ‘wee dram’ can be found on the menu.

A bottle of The Laird of Fintry retails at $75.
