Okanagan Spirits Hopes to Identify Thieves

Crooks That Couldn’t Wait for the Whisky Lottery?

Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery is looking for local support to identify the men who broke into their Vernon distillery Saturday morning.The duo arrived at the distillery in a Toyota Tundra/Tacoma at approximately 5 a.m. to take a closer look at a display case, which holds several limited editions of Okanagan Spirits Laird of Fintry Whisky (only available through an annual lottery), before returning to their vehicle.Eight minutes later the two men were witnessed, via surveillance, smashing through the glass door entrance and attempting to break open the display cases at Okanagan Spirits causing thousands of dollars in damage in the process.Spooked by the alarms the crooks did not make off with any whisky but they did make off with a collection of spirits on their exit adding to the cost in damages.A family-owned local business, the owners are saddened by this vandalism and are looking to the public to provide any information they may have using video footage captured from the distillery’s surveillance cameras to identify the men.To download footage, please visit: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jb5oftu3dyttvbj/AABPPVHKChJEI9SuhVNKxw_Oa?dl=0

Next articleThis pretty much sums it up wouldn’t you say?
Publisher and CEO. First & foremost, father, son, brother and uncle. I am also a huge music fan, promoter and marketing & promotions maniac. As a fulltime musician for the past 35 years myself (yikes, that’s a long time!), I’ve come to appreciate the fact that I am able to perform and sing for people and in return, them enjoy it as much as I do. There is something to be said for that exchange of energy and good vibes that live music brings to all, from the stage to the seats, there is nothing like it and I so look forward to feeling that again when we are out of this crazy mess we are in. Music is needed desperately in everyone’s lives. The goal is to reach out and bring some awareness and light into the music scene by featuring their new music, events and in general, some light into the changes we’ve all had to adjust to in 2020. We all feel the strain in every aspect of these changes and are going to try to do our best to fill our cups up with some fantastic local music while many so of us hang on through this bumpy ride we are on. ? Making an effort to change our own thoughts and habits, can strike a chord mentally and change us along with our communities lives. Be safe and…let’s ROCK N ROLL!
