21 Oct Whiskey News!
October has been an exciting month for us at Spirit Works Distillery. We bottled our inaugural batches of both our Straight Wheat Whiskey and our Straight Rye Whiskey. We assembled and shipped out the first of our 200ml holiday gift packs featuring Spirit Works Vodka, Gin, and Sloe Gin. We saw the signing of the Craft Distillers Act by Governor Jerry Brown which will be opening up a whole new world of possibilities to CA distilleries beginning January 1st, 2016. There is so much wonderful momentum in our industry as we head toward the end of 2015.
To kick off November with a bang, we announced this week that we will be sampling BOTH of our new whiskies in the Tasting Room beginning Nov. 1st. Straight Wheat and Straight Rye Whiskey will be hitting store shelves and back bars a few weeks afterwards, just in time for holiday imbibing. We will also be hosting a whiskey release party at the distillery December 1st where we will allow guests to sample our new products, check out our space, meet the distillers, and have a good time! November and December are shaping up to be as wonderful as October.
