The local spirit
Fernie, the legendary mountain town is known to those outside the valley for its powder turns, bike trails and pristine natural beauty. Take a closer look and you will discover so much more.
A culture historically rich in prospecting, mining and bootlegging. A town that celebrates ingenuity, hard work and determination. At Fernie Distillers we've handcrafted our spirits to reflect it all - the true nature of Fernie is as multifaceted as the people who call it home.
Found on 1st Ave, adjacent to Station Square in the heart of downtown Fernie, BC. Fernie Distillers lies in the centre of a resilient community that has survived numerous disasters only to recover and prosper.
Fernie Distillers faces the railroad track where the original pioneering prospectors and miners disembarked ready to begin their new lives. Close your eyes and take a sip of one of our hand-crafted spirits, listen for the whistle of the train on the tracks and transport yourself back to those bygone days in our lounge.

Every small batch is made by our Distiller, every bottle is filled and corked by hand and every label is applied with pride. Focusing on small batch production means we can give our full attention to every single bottle we produce.
Fernie Distillers is driven by passion. We use proven age-old techniques and the best quality ingredients to produce spirits we can be proud of. Our product line will start with No 9 Mine Vodka, Fernie Fog Liqueur and will grow to include a variety of infusions, unique barrel-aged and seasonal batches.
Fernie Distillers produces less than two hundred bottles per batch with production spearheaded by one of the few female distillers in the industry.
NO 9 MINE
Hidden amongst nature’s regrowth are tales of Fernie’s past. Coal Creek is where Fernie’s rich mining history all started. Our No. 9 Mine Vodka celebrates the dynamic and underground stories untold. A wheat based vodka, rich in flavour and distinctly smooth.
FERNIE FOG LIQUEUR
It was 1898 when the mighty locomotive made it to Fernie bringing people and carrying the stockpiles of coal. Our Fernie Fog Liqueur celebrates its echoing past and integral part of Fernie's future. An Earl Grey tea-infused liqueur with vanilla and demerara sugar.
It takes determination, strength and endurance to stake your claim. William Fernie had it in 1887 when he found coal. Our Prospector Gin celebrates all those out there exploring ...past, present and future. A well-balanced classic gin, infused with juniper, citrus fruit & botanicals.
From the excitement of the first winter snowfall to the relaxing long summer days, seasonal change is a cornerstone of Fernie living. Celebrate the seasons with our Limited Edition spirits.
