Craft Spirits Handmade in Buellton, Santa Ynez Valley, California
They say that most great endeavors begin with a simple conversation and that’s just the way that the idea for Brother’s Spirits began. Back in 2012, during a conversation between Jay and Jeff Lockwood, they talked about the growing Craft Distilling Industry, in both the local economy and throughout the entire country and how difficult it was to obtain products handmade, one batch at a time, in the old world method and using the finest local products. Jeff was acutely aware of this since for sometime he had been involved in the wine industry making wines in the same way he envisioned products be made for the distilling industry.
They both agreed on almost all of these points and the conversations between the two continued and expanded. Both had grown up in Northern California surrounded by the farms and orchards that grew the finest products available anywhere in the world and they wondered why not take those products and make the finest spirits available everywhere. Eventually they began to realize that this new approach to an old industry could be an exciting new venture for both of them and could provide a new and exciting avenue for them to develop and market their hand crafted spirits to the public.
And it was then, in 2013, and after many late night discussions that they began to design their own line of exceptional products…they worked hard to properly produce them and now have available for your enjoyment their Vodka, 100% Blue Agave “Agave Azul” , Limoncello, unaged Mesquite Smoked Single Malt Whiskey ready for tasting and purchasing at their gorgeous Tasting room and Distillery.
So, let’s have a look…and a taste!
