The Distillery

Our distillery is a well-equipped facility with modern equipment that ensures the production of high-quality spirits. The distillery boasts of state-of-the-art copper stills that are designed to produce spirits of exceptional quality. Copper stills are considered the best for distillation as the copper removes sulfur compounds that can affect the taste of the final product, resulting in a cleaner and smoother finish. The facility also has advanced automation systems that make repeatability between batches simple. The distillery is committed to excellence and uses only the best ingredients to create unique spirits that are loved by those who have tried them and sought out by those who haven’t. Our top-notch equipment and strict quality control measures make Los Angeles Distillery stand out as one of the best distilleries in the country.

We have a strict policy of using Non-GMO grain. We also source from our home state of California whenever possible. We support local farmers, so they support us.


Our yeast is always derived from feed source that we are using in our mash. We use over 15 strains of yeast that are cultivated for their efficiency and quality.


Our blending water is meticulously maintained through state-of-the-art filtration. We test for any impurities and keep the dissolved solids below 2 ppm.


Our virgin oak barrels are custom designed using extra dense, thick staves of Hungarian white oak. However, we also use French and American white oak, in addition to a wide variety of ex-casks.


Call us old fashion, but the only way we age our products is by using the most valuable resource on Earth, TIME. Our products age the traditional way, spending years in oak barrels.
