Opuntia

Made from the vibrantly colored fruit of the Opuntia cactus, a staple of the Southern California landscape, our cactus fruit spirit will be smooth, subtly sweet and unlike anything you've tasted before. Whether straight up, on ice or mixed in a cocktail, Opuntia will be your new drink of choice. 

Kernza Whiskey

Standard, annual grains used in whiskey production are often destructive to local landscapes. Our Kernza Whiskey will be the only whiskey made from Kernza, a perennial wheat grass developed by The Land Institute to help build and maintain healthy soil with its incredibly deep root system.  

Wilder Gin

Leading with California Juniper and backed by a bouquet of local herbs, our Wilder Gin will be a fresh interpretation of the classic spirit. Purple Sage, Yerba Santa, and California Bay Laurel are just a few of the flavors we're experimenting with. If you're tired of the same old gin, we've got you covered.
