What it means to Be Craft

At Ryes & Shine Craft Distillery, “craft” embodies our dedication to local heritage and quality. We prioritize local ingredients and embody the “local supporting local” ethos, ensuring our spirits are a testament to our community’s skill and vibrancy. Choosing Ryes & Shine means embracing authenticity, sustainability, and unparalleled craftmanship in every sip.


Made from scratch using local sweet corn and malted barley. From Apple Pie to our local strawberry based Love Potion #SHINE our spirits will have you shining from within.


Our premium sipping Vodka made from 100% BC Wheat. Our Vodka is delicious on it’s own, mixed in a cocktail or as the star of a perfect classic martini.


Our Victoria Dry Gin makes the perfect martini, or if you are looking from something different try our Experimental Gin in your favourite cocktail or martini.

Ahoy Matey

Captain Kelly’s Special reserve, not exactly Rum but exactly perfect for our little island in the Pacific. Made from local sugar beets our “Rum” style spirit is great on the rocks or mixed in your favourite Tiki Drink or Cocktail.

Kentucky Gold

Created in the Southern Tradition, our “Bourbon” style spirit is made from BC sweet corn, aged in American Oak and ready for some front porch sittin’ and some fine smooth sippin’. Availble in early 2026.


Our traditional Canadian 100% Rye Whisky is what built the west. Our love of craft shines through in our wide variety interesting barrel selections and recipes. Ask about our personal and corporate Whisky Programs.
