Gary Tebbutt of Compass Developments with Mike Urban of Urban Distilleries

As a developer with Compass Developments, Gary Tebbutt has been a client of CTQ for many years. When we caught up to Gary and asked him to share his journey at our Eternally Interesting event, he was working on a Brewery, Farmer’s market concept in Kelowna’s North End. Gary decided to share with us one of his life’s adventures in Monaco instead.

Gary’s close friend, Rex Jardine, owns a company called Vector Powerboats. The company is known for designing and producing one of the fastest speed boats in the world.

Rex invited Gary to accompany him to a boat show in Monaco where he was to showcase this marvel of engineering. Rubbing shoulders with some of the wealthiest people in the world, while taking in the amazing views of Monaco sure left a lasting impression. Gary’s next planned adventure is to go with his wife and a group of friends on a motorbike tour through various parts of Africa.

Mike Urban of Urban Distilleries also joined us. He started his distillery after realizing his love of creating and blending local and natural products. He shared with us five handcrafted products in his Spirit Bear line. Mike’s  Vodka, Gin and Single malts have been created using ingredients from BC, have all won many awards. They also feature many specialty beverages such as Espresso infused Vodka and fruit liquors.

CTQ would like to thanks both Gary and Mike for making our Friday afternoon interesting.
