Carmelis Goat Cheese Farm
Carmelis is a family-owned boutique dairy, which takes pride in the uncompromising approach taken to ensure the unique quality of its cheeses. The cheeses are produced on a small scale which enables them to closely monitor each and every cheese.
Located near Okanagan Lake, some 17 km south of downtown Kelowna, next to high-quality wineries like CedarCreek Estate Winery and St. Hubertus Winery, and close to the entrance to Okanagan Mountain Park.
All of their cheeses bear the stamp of the research, zeal and commitment they put into their work. At their dairy, they chose to specialize in rich, complex and refined cheeses that render full justice to the quality of the milk and the art of cheese making. The cheeses are produced using traditional techniques learned during many visits to various areas of France in particular, and Europe in general. All of Carmelis’ cheeses are made from 100% goat milk produced on their sister farm in Agassiz, Mystery Meadows.
The milk contains no additives or preservatives, and they use no stimulation processes in its production, making sure to allow proper time for every type of cheese to reach its true maturity.
Throughout the entire production process, Carmelis make minimal use of machinery while making sure that the ripening process takes place under the optimal conditions of humidity and temperature.
WESTERN CANADA'S OLDEST CRAFT DISTILLERY
The distillery sprung from the idea of using 100% locally grown fruits and grains to make premium, world-class spirits just a tractor-ride away from the orchards and fields where the base ingredients were grown. BC’s original harvest-to-flask distillery now offers a selection of more than 25 internationally awarded spirits ranging from BC’s first Single Malt Whisky to Gins, Vodkas, Liqueurs, Fruit Brandies and even Aquavit and Absinthe.
Their state-of-the-art Copper Pot Still allows them to convert perfectly ripened Okanagan grains and apples into smooth craft vodka and gin.
You can enjoy the Okanagan Spirits Gin and Okanagan Spirits Vodka in our handcrafted cocktails or a classic dry martini in the style of James Bond.
Okanagan Spirits also has a storefront located on Bernard Avenue an easy stroll from the hotel where you can taste their products, learn about the distilling process and even tuck a bottle in your bag to take home.
