We love local distilleries, and when Spirit Works sent us samples of some new cask finished rye it didn’t take long for us to land on this beauty for our first private selection with Sebastopol’s grain-to-glass champion. This shows all the right fruit tones from its time in Port cask, balanced by a beautiful rye spice.
After years working with environmental non-profits, Ashby and Timo Marshall decided to try and change the course of the world in a different way - one gin at a time. After an arduous four years of distilling courses and apprenticeships, their dream became reality when they opened the doors of their Northern California distillery. Each spirit starts with local raw grains that are milled, fermented and distilled entirely on site, making them one of the few grain-to-glass distilleries in America. This hands-on approach allows them to control all aspects of the process, creating a line of premium spirits where quality has never been compromised for the sake of volume. From their Vodka to Sloe Gin, Spirits Works has not only raised the bar in the world of "craft spirits," they've entered into a class of their own.
