  • Great spot to drop into on a rainy Saturday morning. The hostess was great as was the vodka with a hint of espresso. Will recommend and return
  • The only thing better than the spirits from Wayward is the people. Dave, Andrea and the rest of the crew care about what they do, and they put their love and passion into every bottle. I almost always have a 'reminder' taste at the Comox Valley Farmers' Market, and their tasting room in Courtenay is lovely as well. They are involved in the community and hold their own cool special events. And did I mention the spirits? The vodka, gin, rum and the rest are double-d ddelicious! No mix necessary.
  • Came here two weeks ago and I was blown away by the awesome cheery staff, the amazing selection of spirits, and how we got to see the process too. My girlfriend works in the industry and this was one of the if not the best of tasting experiences out of many I have had. Highly recommend!
  • Some of the friendliest staff you will ever meet. Super friendly, super hospitable, super passionate about what they do. Their passion definitely shows in the quality of their product. I love the small scale brewing/distilling. I hope they stay this way forever. Carry on, my Wayward son!
  • Loved it all, the people, the product and the process....These folks really get it right and it shows in their products... Their attention to detail is amazing. Truly inspirational visit, I cant wait to try your rum
