Bar Interior



A place for all in the heart of the Kootenays. Located in a lovingly restored heritage building, KWD is built on dreams and big ideas. Our founders Thomas and Ash Hodgson started their journey in 2018, the next four years were filled with lots of paperwork, and an absurd amount of drywall. The entire space was broken down and rebuilt by our head distiller and co-owner Thomas, look around our space, and everything you see will likely have been built or created by his two hands. If you decided to dine with us or pick up some of our non-alcoholic items those were created with care by Ash.  Come visit our 50-seat lounge Friday and Saturday nights and see what Kootenay West Distilling has to offer.
