Meeting captain Pete, propietor, is a great experience. Jovial, fun, and very Hornby. Nice tasting, no push for sales. The poor signage is part of the adventure. You can't take wrong turn on Hornby Island.

The signs to get there aren't great (small white circles with a black frog on them attached to tree trunks on the way there), but once you make it in it's a great little spot. The distillery is quaint, but the equipment is state of...More

While we enjoyed the tastings, the kids enjoyed the chickens, ducks, koi pond and Ginger the cat. Brown Vodka was very interesting, as well as the many Gins. Check it out.
