Our Farm & Distillery in Kelowna: A Hidden Treasure

Experience Kelowna's Luckhurst: Farming and Spirits Combined

Get to Know Kelowna's Best Farm & Distillery

Laura and Joe met in Vancouver in 2009 when Laura was working in the aviation industry and Joe was the representative for his family’s estate winery located in Oliver, BC. Following a few years of dating, they embarked on the next step of their journey together investing in their first home. Joe received a call from his parents asking him and Laura to shift their “five-year plan” in Vancouver and instead move to the South Okanagan to take over management of the family business. In the Summer of 2012, they adjusted their plans by moving to the beautiful BC Interior and never looked back.

Life continued to unfold when they married in the spring of 2013 and welcomed their daughter Farley into the world in the spring of 2016. Their little family continued enjoying life in Oliver and in the summer of 2018, the family winery was awarded First Place at the National Wine Awards in Canada. This prestigious award led to the sale of the winery later that year. Joe stayed on with the new owners of the winery until the summer of 2020.

The Pandemic led Joe and Laura to discover what was most important. Family. This perspective is what helped to find their next endeavour. While looking for the perfect family business, Joe continued his consulting services to the wine industry while Laura seized the opportunity to fulfill her dream to write and illustrate a children’s book.

After an extensive search for their next chapter, the young family discovered the ideal setting to pursue their dream life. They stumbled upon a quaint distillery nestled on a stunning six-acre plot of land. This picturesque place not only provided an opportunity to deepen their expertise in the liquor industry but also to foster happiness and camaraderie with a charming assortment of farm animals. Moreover, its scenic allure renders it a perfect backdrop for wedding ceremonies and photoshoots. 

Laura, Joe and Farley are excited to get “Back to Real” on the farm.
