“At Wright & Brown Distilling Co. we return to traditional methods to create exciting new California spirits that will stand the test of time. At the heart of our process is a classical American made artisan copper pot still which we use to handcraft each small batch. We seek out the most high-quality and flavorful non-GMO malted grains, molasses and wine. We work with locally grown, sustain-ably farmed, organic grains whenever possible. We carry out every step of the spirits making process in house, from milling the grain to mashing, fermenting, distilling, barrel-aging and bottling.
We are very excited to bring craft distilling to Oakland!”
