Guided by master distiller Tyler Schramm, Pemberton Distillery handcrafts one of the world’s first certified-organic potato vodkas and one of Canada’s first certified-organic gins from local ingredients. The one-hour distillery tour zooms in on Pemberton’s process, letting groups hold debate sessions on the merits of the distillery’s glistening copper pot stills and wooden barrels that transform pure mountain waters and five kinds of local potatoes into artisan spirits. After witnessing the craftsmanship in action, tourists taste Pemberton’s Schramm Vodka, a slow-fermented, small-batch vodka that won Double Gold and Spirit of the Year at the 2010 World Spirits awards. Tasting continues with whisky and Schramm Gin, a limited batch potato-based gin spiced by eight organic herbs and botanicals including juniper berries and rosemary, and finished in the style of a London dry gin by infusing Oscar Wilde-grade wit. After the tasting, tour buddies may peruse the gift shop for bottles to take home. Tours run Thursday–Sunday.
