26 Feb Bottle Sales Now Available!!
Its official, Spirit Works Distillery can now sell up to three 750ml bottles of our spirits per tasting room customer, per day! The long anticipated AB 1295 which was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown in October 2015 went into effect January 1st of this year. We submitted our application for the newly created Craft Distiller’s License in early January and have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of our new permit from the CA ABC.
In addition to our excitement about bottle sales, this is also an excellent opportunity for Ashby and our production team to continue to challenge themselves and evolve as distiller’s by creating small batch, experimental products that we will sell exclusively out of our tasting room. This will also afford us the opportunity to test out the market and see how our tasting room visitors feel about a product before it becomes a consistent part of our production schedule. In this way, our tasting room visitors play an active role in deciding which experimental products become a permanent part of our portfolio. We can’t wait to share some of our ideas with you!!
Last night, Spirit Works Distillery co-founder Timo Marshall visited KRSO NewsTalk 1350 to chat about AB 1295 and how it is effecting us so far. He also announced our first tasting room exclusive product! On Saturday, March 12th, we’ll be releasing a very limited amount of Single Barrel, Cask Strength Straight Rye Whiskey! We’ll have about 200 bottles available for purchase. More details next week, cheers!
