ABOUT US


POT STILLS vs. COLUMN STILLS

Adhering to traditional methods, we’ve chosen to use directfire, copper pot stills for our distillation process. Our labor intensive production requires we distill twice to allow our rudimentary stills to reach a high enough alcohol concentration to go to barrel. In return, we are left with a beautifully viscous and high ester-driven spirit. At Sonoma County Distilling Company, we keep a watchful eye for burns as our direct-fire stills produce a consistent and slight caramelization. It’s through this imperfection that we find distinction. Using a mindful approach, combined with our coastal climate and refined barrel program, we craft our distinctive style; confirming our commitment to producing world-class whiskeys.

TASTING ROOM & TOURS

Open Wednesday- Sunday for tastings and sales | 11am- 5pm. Tastings are $10/person and include up to six 1/4-ounce tastes of our whiskeys.

GRAIN TO GLASS

Grain to Glass is our focus at Sonoma County Distilling Company – every level of the production is handled in-house. Proudly ignoring the industry trends in pursuit of a new legacy – we are steeped in traditional values but fueled by modern taste. We source only the finest non-GMO grains from California, Canada and the UK and our malted barley is locally smoked with California Cherrywood. Our new, American oak barrels are proudly made in Missouri and Minnesota. Through hard work, traditional time-honored techniques and our ideal location in picturesque Sonoma County, we are California’s premier whiskey distillery.
