    Beautiful facility making some amazing spirits. Super unique process using honey as the base ingredient for distillation. If you see their products around, definitely pick up a bottle. I highly recommend the Krupnik and the Depth Charge.

    WOW, who knew honey could make such smooth and delicious booze!? The vodka is top notch, the Krupnik is a staple now in my liquor cabinet, and while I don't typically like gin, I would drink theirs. Our tasting was done by Thomas and the whole experience was great.

    I love gin and it was really good experience with honey based gin. Cocktails were tasty and sampling was unstoppable. You definitely can rely on Canadian veteran families in terms of distillery.

    For someone who really doesn't enjoy honey I was more than pleasantly surprised at the excellent products that can be made from fermented honey. I would recommend that everyone give it a try. I am looking forward to trying our purchases at home!

    We have had all the flights and they are incredible. Well balanced and complex flavors. The neat drinks are also so tasty. Sam made it an excellent experience. He's like a one man show! Telling us about the distillery, how he crafted the cocktails and great conversation. Highly recommend and a must-do Courtney experience.

    Some of the finest-tasting cask strength apple brandy in the world is made right here. It was a rare treat to try!

    Got to try some free samples of some amazing gin and other liqueurs, so much so that I had to make some purchases. The staff were extremely friendly and we even got to see some honey bees up close. I came here just to charge my car for a bit but my experience with this place was above and beyond in every way.

    A warm welcome and wonderful experience. I only wish I had more space in my luggage for one each of these most delicious drinks.

    We always shop Wayward at the Vancouver Christmas Market, so when we realized they were in Courtenay we were so excited to visit them in their own home! The staff were very welcoming and we got to do a complementary tasting. Of course we couldn't leave empty handed, and their. Raspberry gin with fresh raspberries was too good to pass up!

    Really friendly woman gave us the rundown on the distillery and explained the various alcohols they make. Tasted almost everything and thought they were all excellent. The Krupnik was fantastic.

    Very welcoming and friendly staff coupled with delicious gin and liqueurs. We had a great experience and learned a ton about the process and products. Left with two bottles of unruly gin and will cherish them!! A must do when touring the north island!

    My husband and I visited on November 14th, 2021 and was helped by a lovely staff (I am so sorry I don't remember your name!). She was very sweet and helpful. The gin are absolutely amazing that I purchased a few bottles. Very very impressed with how smooth they are on their own as well mixed. Thank you so much! Especially for being open when nearly everything was closed haha. :)
