08 Jan New Year, New License
January 8th 2016 became a very exciting day at Spirit Works Distillery. We received our public notice from the California Alcoholic Beverage Control for our application for the newly created Craft Distiller’s License. The Craft Distiller’s License (Type 74) is the result of successful lobbying in 2015 by the California Artisanal Distiller’s Guild. This new license will permit us to sell bottles of Spirit Works Distillery product to our tasting room visitors, a privilege we (and our visitors) have been longing for. This is the most significant thing to happen to the spirits industry in California since 1933!
The public notice must be posted on our premises for 30 days. We are hopeful that in the next 4-6 weeks, we will be welcoming tasting rooms visitors for tastings, tours, and the ability to purchase a bottle (or 3) of our spirits to bring home with them. We also plan on creating some exciting tasting room exclusive products in limited quantities. We’ll keep everyone posted. Stay tuned and Happy New Year!
