COPPER POT STILLS

COPPER POT STILLS

Adhering to traditional methods, we’ve chosen to use direct fire, 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.

OUR STORY

OUR STORY

Adam Spiegel was born and raised in San Francisco, and from a young age experienced the bounty that Sonoma County offers through monthly visits to the  area with his parents visiting the beaches, attending  concerts and tagging along on wine tastings. It was in 2008 he found a passion for creating spirits while assisting a distiller friend in Santa Rosa make     whiskeys. Adam soon realized they were making products which tasted better than what he was    buying in the stores. From there, Sonoma County Distilling Company was founded in 2010 as one of the first 200 distilleries in the United States.  Now with over 1,300 active distilleries across the nation, Sonoma County Distilling Company is considered one of the “old timers”.

 “While working with great Master Distillers and Blenders over the years, I’ve honed my stills to continually raise the bar with each new product and batch. There are no “Masters” here per say; we’re just regular people striving every day to better themselves and their craft. I like to say we’re making whiskeys in a small way for a big world.   — Adam Spiegel, Sonoma County Distilling Company
