A first and only of its kind - our full-bodied liqueur, rested in oak barrels, provides notes of dark cherry, clove,cardamom, and orange peel. This incredible aged sloe gin is most often enjoyed as a digestif on its own, but is known to show up in specialty cocktails around the Bay Area.
Nose: Prune and dried grapes
Palate: Vanilla, dried cherry, and ruby port
Finish: Dry with a rich and luxurious mouthfeel

"Unique distillery in the Barlow! You can learn about distilling process, and taste a variety of their spirits in the tasting room. The owners are nice and the place is clean and well kept. Looking forward to it opening back soon. You can still get great spirits during Covid."
"Spirit Works Distillery is a great place to learn about the making of gin and any of their other wonderful products. The Barrel Gin is a world class sipping gin."
"Great Gin, amazing staff ! ! ! ! ! Awesome tasting room with a Willy Wonka style distillery. The head distiller is a woman, as well as 9 of 10 of their employees (even the dogs are female) - I’m not a radical feminist, but it’s very motivating/encouraging/empowering to see women getting into to a predominantly male industry."
