Grant's website is here:
The Dubh Glas Distillery | Whisky, Gin and Spirits



They conduct tours Friday to Sunday 11-6 according to their website. It is interesting to hear his spiel about the process and his choice of equipment. Sampling is of course the highlight. There was an email sent out about his craft alcohol kit, but I can't find it. He did have whiskey on the go last year (meaning casked but NOT drinkable). I'll try to call him when I get a chance for the latest info.

The distillery is actually at the far northern edge of Oliver, so its about 4-5 miles out of the main centre.





tl;dr
get a bottle at the Oliver Desert Rose Liquor store (by Canadian Tire) or conveniently/potentially at the BCGov Sardis Liquor Store (Chilliwack mall)


Saw Grant today.

He has white whiskey (aka basically vodka with a different name) on sale at the distillery. His regular whiskey casks are still aging. Had a small sample (last of the testers). Oak with caramel overtones.

Regular hours stand.

As long as it is an Escape supplied trailer, I am in.

Hope the whiskey has more character than the building where it's made. I'll bring a beer from home.
