  • About

    Fernie Distillers are the newest addition to the food and beverage industry in Fernie, B.C. Centrally located on 1st Ave and right next door to Branch 36 of the Canadian Legion, the distillery is officially open for tastings, tours and delicious cocktails.

    The distillery is owned and operated by Jillian Rutherford and Andrew Hayden. Rutherford is one of few female distillers in Canada, and Hayden has extensive experience working with global beverage brands and consumer packaged goods.

    The two launch products; No. 9 Mine Vodka and Fernie Fog Liqueur are both named with a nod to Fernie’s mining and rail. On the horizon the Fernie Distillers’ Prospector Gin is being fine tuned for launch later this year as well as other seasonal releases.
    After extensive renovations, the building has been restored to transform it into a modern production facility and tasting room. Visitors to the distillery can learn about the distilling process direct from the team that makes the product and enjoy signature cocktails by the bar, or on the patio. Product and merchandise are available for purchase onsite, along with a seasonally crafted cocktail list and delicious bites prepared by Fernie Catering Co.
