Griffo Distillery

Releasing a crisp, complex gin in late fall of 2014 and a rye and bourbon in 2015/2016.

We take immense pride in the products we have crafted. Hand distilled and bottled in house. Locally sourced and locally based in beautiful Petaluma, CA, in the heart of Sonoma County.

All spirits are distilled in our 240 gallon American made copper pot still. We make booze just the way we like it. We hope you like it, too.


We believe that the best gin we can make comes from the simple and raw expression of only the highest quality botanicals and allowing them to show their own beauty.

Our gin is a light, crisp and fresh twist on the traditional English gin. Distilled in the London Style, our gin is mixed with the perfect balance of botanicals inside our pot still and distilled in a single run. This process takes intensive  preparation and attention to detail. We believe that this is the only way to create the beautiful, soft complexity that is our trademark.

We have sourced only the finest botanicals for our initial offering, Scott Street Gin. We believe that the best gin we can make comes from the simple and raw expression of these superior botanicals.   Our juniper is delicious and grown in the wild. Meyer lemons are balanced with the warmth of grains of paradise and the complexity of coriander. Russian River Valley water shapes our gin into a supple and bright pour.



Tasting Notes:

Nose: Bright citrus with sweetness from juniper

Fore palate: Complexity from grains of paradise and juniper
