This year, a supply of Laird of Fintry Lottery Release Whisky was held for a charity campaign, with three hot meals provided at Kelowna’s Gospel Mission for each bottle sold.

“By supporting your local distillery and drinking only the finest of world-class, single-malt whisky, you helped us raise the funds to provide over 980 hot meals through the local Gospel Mission,” read a release from Okanagan Spirits.

The campaign enabled a total of 981 meals to be served at the Gospel Mission.
