Their Story:

When Lora & Kevin Goodwin first began growing and selling organic strawberries and vegetables in 1998, they had no idea that they would one day produce handcrafted artisan spirits. As they worked the land, they experienced the importance of supporting local farms and felt the positive impact of a community’s agriculture had on both the environment and its prosperity. They planted the seeds of a dream to leverage this experience, a love of growing their own food, and the desire to make a finished farm product into a local business. That idea, was brought to fruition with Kootenay Country Craft Distillery.
